Mahogany with a creamy head and spotty lacing. Caramel and roasted malts. Some honey. Alcohol and bitter notes with some peppery spices. Citrus comes out in the flavor. More caramel and roast. Bitter orange and some alcohol. Nice blend of malts and hops that trails off bitter.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Auburn color, red hue, well carbonated. The aroma is nicely hoppy with rich maltyness, burnt toast & rye. The flavor is very rounded with lots of umami & hops. Finishes excellent, smooth, lingering, quenching. Very balanced and tasty. Thanks for the treat Indiana_Red!

IndianaRed (2597) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Bottle Pours out a clear deep golden redishh amber, with a small head and little lacing. Aroma was a moderate malt and hop componant and even at 7% the ABV was clearly present. Flavors were , grain, dough, and a strong hops contingent. Feel was a medium body, slightly bitter and alcoholic with lively carbonation. After taste was quite bitter and long lasting.

kendog (16) - whittier, California, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Tasted on draft at the 6740. Great full bodied beer, deer red almost brown. Very complex malt profile, a little smoky but not to much and of course lots of hops from Bear Republic. I have yet to try a beer from them I haven’t liked.

Bottle. Pours a deep red color, tan head that left a nice lacing on my glass. Nice strong aroma, some caramel and I can smell the hops. Smooth flavor, not as hoppy as I expected, but nice malty and bitter taste with some wood and caramel notes followed by a bit of alcohol. Alcohol is more evident in the aftertaste, as well as some of the wood flavor. A good brew, something that I could enjoy every day.

very nice, thank you alex. pours dark amber with a fat tan head on it. tastes very much like a scotch ale with some kick. smell is hoppy and malty and the taste is very similar. a very nice, rich brew that doesnt leave me disappointed in the least.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Dark amber. Nice full fruity and malty nose, very well developed and soft smelling, pleasent. Flavor is very mellow but full and complex, wood-aged almost. Really excellent.

This stuff is awesome! Caramel/molasses aroma and flavor with a very tasteful hop finish. After having, and loving, the Racer 5 IPA, this one confirms the talents of the BR brewmaster. Every sip is a delight. A bomber is the perfect size for this beer, because 12 oz. simply wouldn’t be enough.
