4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bubbly dark mahogany with a lovely large foamy off-white head. Aroma is a near-perfect blend of fresh citrus hops, roasted malt, caramel and spices. Flavour follows the aroma but the hops are more upfront.

More like a red ale to me. Strong, rich malty flavor with a moderate amount of sweetness and the caramel/toffee you’d expect from a red ale. Also wet on the tongue and moderate alcohol. Moderate citrus and pine hops as well as maybe a bit herbal.

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.

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 can’t 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. Can’t wait for that one.

Double bastard is better, so getting that out of the way, this beer is pretty good but not one I’d pick up, too many other great options...

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.
