Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Poco Grande style glass.
Pours into the glass a deep black body forming into a frothy head full of tight tiny bubbles.
Aromas of dark fruit, coffee and bittersweet chocolate.
Tastes of bittersweet chocolate, almost a bourbon barrel flavor as well.
Very smooth and creamy body with an underlying sweetness at the end.
Overall a very easy drinker for an Imperial stout, a low abv makes this super easy to drink.

Bomber poured into my big 20 oz. nonic.

A- Black, and that's it. Not light shines through. Towering, thick and creamy brown head. Great retention. Thick globs of lacing all around.

S- Roasted coffee, and some cocoa notes. Pleasant but basic; I was expecting more complexity in the aroma.

T- Sweeter cocoa/dark chocolate. The coffee from the aroma takes a back seat. Slight, subtle earthy hop character.

M- Full bodied. So creamy and thick. Sweet and just a hint of bitterness in the finish.

O- Epically drinkable. Smooth and sweet. Not as strong as most stouts with this much flavor and feel. The oatmeal has to do with that, I'm sure. Really tasty and I could drink a couple bombers in a sitting and not feel full, or wiped out.

A: Dark brown and a 1/2 inch of tan head. Quick dissipation to medium lace.

S: Sweet dark chocolate milk.

T: Chocolate and toffee. Sweet finish. Hides alcohol well.

M: Creamy medium body - definitely 3 of these

O: Nice but sweet stout with a good ABV. Will definitely seek out again on a cold NY night.

Beautiful looking beer. Chocolate brown with a massive three finger head that leaves full lacing around the glass. Nose is heavy on malt with notes of nuts and wood. Malt hits first, followed by chocolate, smoke and wood flavors. Lingers long and begs to be consumed slowly and appreciated. Stellar brew.
