Bottle. Deeper amber pour. Big caramel maltiness, decent piney bitternes, fuller mouthfeel. As far as the style goes this is one of the better ones

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from trade with a friend in Arizona. Pours a very dark amber color with a big thick foamy head that fades slowly and leaves great webbing. Aroma is a great mix of malt and hops. Lots of sweet caramel and biscuit malt mix with a good amount of piney and floral hops too. Taste reminds me of Arrogant Bastard a bit, but a little sweeter and less bitter. Packed with flavor, caramel, sweet bread, biscuits, light chocolate, pine, and flowers. Smooth hoppy finish. Medium body, creamy and oily mouthfeel. Probably the best amber Iíve had. Delicious.

pours a nice red/brown with a large fluffy lt. tan head. This beer has a great mixture of hops and malts.. This beer has a nice earthy flavor with some pine and citrus tastes. There is a medium bitterness with a bit of grass and nutty tastes.

Beautiful malt in flavor and color. Great bitter balance. Hop flavor could be a bit brighter and clean, but since it isnít the dominant flavor the slight dullness there detracts less. Canít ask for a better aroma. Have had the 6.66 Halloween version and it was similarly excellent. Curious how they compare. Nice nod to a great band just for a bonus.

22 oz. bottle from Root Cellar. Pours a dark but clear chocolate brown with a small tan head. Aroma of toasted, caramel, and chocolate malts, earthy hops, and a hint of citrus. Flavor brings the same variety of malts and earthy, mildly citrusy hops. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty, bitter mouthfeel. Good hoppy amber ale that is certainly a unique take on the style despite not being very complex.

Great as a red ale. Really good hoppiness and not overdone, with chocolate in the secondary to give it an added dimension. Very good drinkability. Bottle from Camponeís, well worth the $12 and email to keep aside for me.Hoppier than its scent. Above average mouthfeel.

Bottle. Not sure how this review got by me. There are very few things I enjoy more than an amazing amber ale, and unfortunately this is only one of a few greats that I have had.

Bomber from Nugget Market in Davis, CA. Pours very dark and ruddy with a foamy tan head. Nose seems floral with resin backing. Full bodied, almost. Flavor is pine/grapefruit with chocolaty dark malt. It finishes smooth bitter with chocolate notes.
