Pours a very dark brown/black with light brown head that wont quit, sticking to the top of the glass. Aroma consists of caramel, fruity ester i assume from the belgian yeast. Tastes of caramel, toast, mixture of spice and booze dried cherry and plum, very complex and very good, it has come along way from when it was released(as i expected). Nice work Neal.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Let this one age for about a year as it was a bit boozy at first so let it age in the bottle proper for the style. Pours a clear black with a long lasting tan/brown head that leaves lots of spotty lace. Aroma is sweet caramel, fig and some alcohol. Taste is is caramel and some spice and smooth alcohol finish, far smoother than when it first came out.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
March 21, 2012 with blankboy and garthicus. Bomber c/o blankboy. Iím a-scared! Deep clear refractive ruby, quite bright, yet really deep in colour - with a decent and lasting foamy/creamy beige/tan head. Smells okay - caramel and cola candy sweetness dominates, some alcohol, maybe a little perfume bitterness - not much fruit or spice. Taste is sweet caramel, a bit more spice, weirdly grassy and pungent too (7-). Average body, mild carbonation, finishes a little sweaty and pungent - really develops a fresh-cut grass bitterness, I liked it less the more I drank.
