Fabulous appearance for any beer, but especially for a lager. Deep orange and clear with a great lasting head and sticky lace that coats the glass.
Aroma and flavor are both boozy, plenty of heavy malt-bomb-ish base, some crisp floral hops to offer a little glimpse of balance, caramel malts galore.
Body is surprisingly heavier than expected, carbonation is about what I’d expect.
It’s an interesting beer but not one I’ll rush to pick up often, even if it was a year round offering. There are other high ABV beers that I enjoy better.

2013 bomber. Dark copper pour with little head or retention. Nose is malty goodness with a little more hops than is typical for the style. Some caramel, toffee and alcohol as well. Taste follows the nose. A little too boozy to take down more than one bomber which is unfortunate. Nice and sweet.

Can’t believe I have not rated this. Malty with a little sweetness. One of the best fest beers.

Hoppy. Very nice. Entered this beer on a different app and I'm not able to import my comments unfortunately.

Bottle. Pours a darker copper with a beige head of foam. The aroma has some bread, dough, and tomatoes? I’m even get a tea note. Taste is fairly bitter and dry. Lasting finish.

Pours copper with a thick tan creamy tan head that slowly creates a ringed lacing as you sip away.
Off the top the smell of sweet malty fruits makes me smile.
Flavor of spicy fruit, raisins, a lovely blend of malty bread.
Overall this is probably one of my most favorite marzen (Dunker Bock) type brews of which I am usually am not a fan. Making it Imperial just made this a lovely booze finish that balances the entire beverage. Remarkably solid!

Amber pour with a white head. Aromas of malt, dried fruit, and brown sugar. Flavor is very similar. The initial flavor is very sweet followed by the dark fruits and malts. Finishes a bit boozy but not outrageous. Interesting beer.

Bomber bottle poured a crystal clear amber w/ small beige head diminishing to a thin cap w/ nice lacing. Big sweet caramel malt aroma. Initial flavor is a moderate sweet w/ the finish overwhelmed by the booziness. Tastes are sweet caramel, rum, raisin, and Belgian sugar. Full bodied, lively carbonation, and boozy finish.
