A - Black opaque, dark tan head. Some lacing.

S - Chocolate and roast, and a definite smack of alcohol.

T - As with the nose, lush and full, crossing into the close with a nice snap of bitterness. Brownie batter and dark chocolate.

M - Mild carbonation and enough drying and booze warmth to keep the weight from taxing the palate.

O - Over the years, it is this beer that best epitomizes the promise of Southern Tier. Delicious.

Bomber from Loews Foods 1 pt 6 fl oz

A. - jet black, pours with a small tan head that moves to nothing, no lace at all.

S - chocolate, some dark fruit, mild hops, and more chocolate.

T - similar to the smell, with some faint booze, and some almond/nuts on the finish. Vanilla notes.

M - creamy. Low carbonation.

O - goes down too fast for 10%. Little early in the season for this, but I can see this as a good dessert beer to share as things get colder. As far as chocolate stouts go, this is up there with Youngs.
