Bomber, batch #7 bottled February 2014. Nice aroma of Belgian and caramel malt with notes of banana and clove. Pours a dark caramel colors with a thin off-white head and good lacing. Starts with a lot of caramel and Belgian candy maltiness. Finishes smooth with a bit of banana and clove with the candy sweetness sticking to the palate. Excellent Belgian collaboration.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color. Slight chill haze. Small creamy khaki head. Little lacing. Husky malt aroma with a strange vinyl note. Taste is a fruity malt and caramel. Not as cloying as most of Avery’s "beers". Collab brought some actual knowledge it seems.

bottle. Batch 7. Chunky deep amber with one finger head. A bit sweet with some caramel malt and brown sugar. Moderate belgian spicing and a good amount of booze kick. Good, but not great.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours burgundy with streaks of fiery orange. Head retention consistent with the style, robust at first, diminishing to a foreboding and soapy ring. Yeast particles interlaced. Aroma of sweet and sugary yeast, bing cherries, tobacco, brandy soaked raisins. Toes the line between the Dubbel and Quad styles. Has a chewy, leathery malt body, somewhat grainy in the mouthfeel. Counterbalanced nicely by a robust fruitiness, think prunes and plantaines. Perfectly spiced and peppery with a hint of diacetyl. Great collab that drinks easy, is full of flavor and masks its potency very well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice caramel appearance with decent lacing but little head. Can’t get used to the floating sediment, even at the first pour. Caramel and Bourbon notes, not too strong of an alcohol flavor.
