Bomber; thanks to cakanator for the trade; 2008 vintage; hazy dark amber with thin white head; lots of caramel up front with some light oranges; texture is thin with caramel and toffee; fruity with some hoppy spice and chocolate; pretty nice overall and maybe a tad thin for me; might check out my 2009 bottle before it ages much more

Courtesy of suzygreenburg. Pours hazy amber with thin off white head. The aroma is sweet and dark fruitiness creating a smooth pleasing sense. The taste is smooth too with rich blended sweet dark fruitiness moving into mild yet smooth sweet malts, aged malts as well as plenty of aged to melded grapefruit and citrus orange hop flavor. Nice!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2006 Baby. Cellar kept for four years, served cool at 5 o’clock on a gorgeous New England spring evening. Poured to a hazy, murky amber glow, with some light tan head that dissipated within a few moments. Something in the nose reminds me of Cellebrator or the Paulaner Dopplebock, sweet with toffee notes and citrus spice. The mouthfeel is a rich thickness of malty majesty, and the aftertaste brings out a fruity warming alcohol. This is quite a treat, a long time in the making, and certainly the best BBC I have ever tried. (A lot by the way : )
Can’t wait to try the ’07 next year...
