3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of roasted and caramel, moderate cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, and date, brown sugar faint spice and a hint of licorice in the background. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, beige, with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is dark reddish brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic and moderately to heavily bitter, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. A potent yet smooth American Strong Ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber poured into a Sam Adams tulip style glass. Great reddish amber color with golden undertones. Mouthfeel is bold and layered. It seems more like a super hoppy red ale. Big red malts wrapped in massive bitter piney hops. Completely unbalanced but awesome.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2015 Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma is malty with some sweet fruity notes and grapefruit. Flavor starts out caramel with oranges and finishes with huge grapefruit rind. Really dry hoppy bitterness. Definately buckeled my tongue.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours from bomber an incredible dark amber forming a nice white head of foam. Aroma pungent upfront, sweet caramel malt and a big-ass floral hops and field grasses. Flavour of peppery bitterness, sugary sweetness, finishes with an ultra aggressive level of more hop bitterness and a sticky sweet grainy finish. Superb and satisfying beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Subdued aroma and dark brown colour gives not hint of what is to follow. This brew is aptly named. A huge malt hit to start is quickly tamed by a similarly scaled dose of hops. Surprisingly, the combination quickly balances itself out and recedes - leaving a mild bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a decent amber with an off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is pleasant but simple. Flavor is nice but way off balance to the bitter. Nice palate although slightly sticky. It’s good.
