Old Review
22 oz bomber I got from Arbor Place Beverage in Douglasville, GA. Served up in a snifter.

A: Pours a pretty damned thick dark, inky black. No light is getting through here, no sir, no way. Poured a pretty large dark brown, mocha head but it had little retention. Seconds later that head was the thinnest of rings that does what it can to create some lacing on the glass, but no dice. Lacing is weak but I think the major want from the brewery was for this beer to be dark as night and thick J. Lo's ass.

S: Smell is actually pretty damned Belgian. Getting a lot of Belgian yeast. Dark fruit is very present in the sort of black cherries, figs, and raisins. Roasted malt and chocolate is coming in slightly, but mostly fruit and yeast taking stage in the nose.

T: Yet again you get that Belgian flavor that only the yeast can provide. More chocolate going on here that can only be described as the flavor of freshly cooked chocolate cookies when the chocolate is still warm, melty and gooey. Slight touch of cream and nougat. Chocolate covered cherries and caramel apple are coming through just after the chocolate leaves your palate. Just a bit of oats peeking through. Hops add a bit of bitterness to the malt presence and sweetness. Booze coming in loud a clear, needs some time to calm down but not at all obscene.

M: Full bodied brew that is thick and chewy. Really coats the mouth and soaks the palate. Carbonation is light making this brew very thick and a sipper. Booze presence is a bit heavy causing some burn on the palate, throat, and belly. Still, very nice and a great winter brew.

D: Like I have previously said this is a sipper and a winter brew. This sucker will warm you up. The booze is a bit heavy but I think that is what was sought in the brewing. Flavor is great and overall a very good brew. Should have bought more to cellar and save for a rainy (or maybe a Southern snowy) day.

22oz Bomber

I got this bomber badass LNBA BIF box I got from dyan, thanks for knocking out another want Dyan! Weyerbacher's 13 Anniversary brew dumps, instead of pours, from the bottle the blackest of blacks. This beer has some serious viscosity so much so it resembles Dark Lord in its thickness. A two finger mocha head formed on the pour but quickly fizzled out to nothing at all. Not a cap or skimming or anything. The lack of head is disappointing but the viscosity of the body is something to behold.

The nose on this beer is like nothing I've come across. There is a solid amount of roastiness but what throws me off are these crazy esters that are big on the banana. That's right, banana! There's some underripe berries as well but the alcohol is huge and on a rampage. It's not a very clean booziness either; it's more along the lines of cheap vodka (think Skol). The nose of this beer just doesn't come together very well.

The flavor helps pick this beer up slightly but it is an alcohol bomb. The roasty malts are there and lay down the base while a strange almost oxidized cardboard flavor flashes in quickly but dies just as fast. The underripe berries make a small showing but the alcohol is big again. Fortunately, the booze is much cleaner then in the nose. This is a strange beer and I'm not so sure what to make of it.

The mouthfeel on this beer fits a stout of this size nicely. There's a big and robust body with the viscosity to coat my entire mouth. If there's a beer to be chewed this is it.

The drinkability is hampered due to the giant abv but for such a huge beer this one goes down fairly easy. One bomber is plenty for me though.

This is an odd beer from Weyerbacher. The nose is crazy and the flavor is out there as well but it ends up being a solid brew. Thanks for the hook up Dyan!

A - Pour produces a cocoa colored head that is a bit fizzy. It's made up fo varying sized bubbles that are overall pretty tight. Fizzes away within a minute leaving a wisp on the surface and a thick bead around the edge of the glass. Body is black (not quite inky) and opaque, allowing zero light through.

S - First thing that hits my nose is anise. That is then followed up with sweet chocolate. Roastiness is there, but seems smooth. Belgian yeast is here, but subdued.

T - Starts off sweet. Big sweetness washes over the tongue with loads of black licorice. This sits on the tongue for a while and actually seems to re-enter later on just before the finish. Belgian yeast takes hold, giving it a sort of yeasty, clovy flavor. Belgian chocolate with a medium roastiness. This is where the licorice comes back in, accompanied by some vinous qualities and a touch more clove. Sweetness sort of lingers on my teeth, like I just had some candy.

M - Full bodied and a touch oily. I have no doubt this is coating me all the way down.

Overall - I can't decide on this one. It isn't bad by any sense, but it does seem to get really sweet. One thing is for sure, it doesn't taste like a 13.4% beer. There is only a slight hint of alcohol and only the massive sweetness is what clues you in to the high abv.
