Old rating. Bomber from Old Town. Pours a nice clear amber with a medium-sized beige head. Citrus, pine, caramel, toffee, molasses aromas present on the nose. Medium body with bitter overtones and a hint of sweetness of the palate. Nice carbonation. Nice big dry bitter finish. A classic from Stone.

On tap at Beertown, Waterloo. Stone! At Beertown! Earthy and lightly citrus aroma. Earthy, smoky, caramel, intensly bitter. Light citrus taste too. Boozy and bitter finish.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful dark mahogany color. Nice creamy head with plenty of lacing. Aroma of pine, tropical fruit, apple, tobacco and syrup. Tastes of mass amounts of caramel balanced by the hops. Everything is working in concert. Definitely well crafted. Finish is abrupt and astringent. A wonderful beer indeed.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice Amber hue with a frothy white head. Head retention is excellent. Aroma (the stench of cigarettes just filled the pub so I really canít make out many aromas) citrus, bitterness, slight pine and maybe some orange. Taste of malt, hop bitterness , pine, citrus, spice, slight sourness and herbs. Amazing as always. Still looking forward to their pale ale 2.0. Canít wait for that one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep ruby colored, small beige head. Aroma is of caramel, toffee and some but not too strong citrusy hops. Taste medium sweet caramel, toffee, a bit toasty malt, some dark fruits, moderately citrus hoppy. Dry, quite bitter finish. Well hidden alcohol. Medium to full bodied, syrupy.

Awesome brew excellent hop pine citrus aroma, big hop character, nice malty, only reason didnít give t aste a perfect is a little too much caramel for me. Others may like it more...just my two pennies, other than that excellent beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark cherry red , slightly cloudy with a nice dense tan head. Excellent lacing and head retention. Reeks of hops, with some cereal grain style malts going on, smells sticky (toffee). Taste is big and bold hops balanced out by the candy/caramel malts, some underlying stone fruit flavors. The bitterness is unrelenting, which is fine by me!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 Bottle from Market Basket, Epping NH. Aroma is mostly hoppy with slight basement smell
Appearance is beautiful reddish amber with large, persistent, off white, foamy head with excellent lacing. Taste is more bitter than sweet, owing to the hops, and is a hair more hoppy than I tend to like but itís not over the edge. Palate is medium bodied with light carbonation noted at the tip of the tongue. Pleasant long finish.
