22oz bomber. Probably one of the best beers I have ever had.

Pours a dark rich color with a nutty brown foam. Smell is sweet and malty with hints of molasses, almost chocolate. This is one of the best tasting stouts I have had. A nice hoppy finish to balance the initial sweetness of the sip. Bear Republic really is top notch. If you can find this, try it!
