Bomber between four at the September 2014 Shrewsbury bottle share. Chestnut brown body with a white crown, semi-sweet malt molasses in both the nose and taste. Mild wood and nutty feel to the medium depthed body, those malts completely ruling the flavours and not allowing the hops to assert themselves. I quite liked it though.

Pours a murky dull-copper color with a sizable, sudsy, khaki head. Roasted malt and toffee aromas. Both of which are mild. Medium-bodied with some mild burning, scrub. Toffee, a little fruit, and roasted malt. The roasted flavor takes on a bit of that home-brew-syrup malt off flavor.

Mike, thanks a ton for this. You da man!
Two bottles, one poured into a pint glass and the other was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a hazy brown color with a one finger white foamy head in both glasses. The head lasted a bit longer in the mug than the pint and once the head died the lacing was the same in both, kinda messy and all over the place.
The aroma offered a strong caramel to molasses sweet nuttiness. There was a light toffee lightly pervading.
The taste followed the aroma in pretty much the same way.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. This one just rolled right on over my tongue in such a graceful way - wow!
Overall, this is quite an impressive Brown ale that I know I would have again. This was very worth seeking out.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Steve’s in Fitchburg, no bottle date and cellar aged about 2 months before I got around to it. Pours a cola color (brown with nice reddish highlights) with a beige colored spongey head. Some drips of lace down through the glass. Aroma has sweet molasses, caramelly malts and some nice roast. Not expecting the coffee component - from a Brown! Taste is of sweet caramel, some brown sugar and some molasses, yet not overly sweet, as roasty nuttyness fought through. Medium to full bodied with a bit of an alcohol presence, and thick enough to be a porter. Finishes to the sweeter side of the bitter - sweet scale, but nothing cloying about it. This is a nice brew; quite unexpectedly so. Kudos to Bear Republic. 14.8

Well its a brown ale. Actually its a pretty good brown ale. About the best I’ve had, right up there with CC Maduro. Tawny brown color, modest foamy thick head. Nose is a touch nutty, molasses, caramel. Flavor similar, with touches of chocolate, more nutty and a light herbal hop finish, hint of spice (almost nutmeg but not) and possibly citrus, and balanced clean finish. Overall very clean fermentation profile. Very drinkable with flavor.

Pours a deep ruby red brown. With a small off white head. Aroma of faint fruit and syrup. Tatste is sweet dark syrupy with a nice faint bitterness in the finish to offset the sweet nicely. Well balanced b
