bomber bottle
 n.— «Yeti makes a potent nightcap, measuring 9.5 percent alcohol by volume (almost twice the 5 percent of mainstream American beers). It’s available in 22-ounce containers that beer aficionados fondly call “bomber” bottles and that the Brewers Association (the small brewers’ trade group) is trying to rechristen “dinner” bottles.» —“Brews That Pack a Potent Punch” by Greg Kitsock Washington Post Nov. 19, 2006.

    “Bomber” is also used to describe submarine sandwiches. I believe the term started in marijuana culture. A “bomber” joint is stuffed full–it’s the antonym of a “piner,” thin joint. Bomber came to be an adjective used to describe anything, and generally means big or generous. Piner is also applied to anything and means thin or cheap.
