A full bodied dark ale which is a blend of our Berkshire Ale and Drayman's Porter. It combines the caramel malt flavor of the pale ale with the chocolate roasted taste of the porter. Shabadoo is a complete and delicious ale.

Bomber Bottle. As advertised, a mix of stout and pale ale characteristics. Pours a nice, stoutlike creamy head. Odor is stoutish, too, but with the fruity characteristic of a pale ale. Taste predominates with stout notes; roasty and smoky. But the pale ale side contributes fruity esters, and some sherry and cherry notes. Its description would suggest a porter, but it's not quite one of those. Perhaps needs to be a style of its own.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Pretty tasty, exactly what I expected for a black and tan. Nut brown color with nice thick head. Chocolate notes and pale malts play off each other with a hop presence.

warhawk91 (302) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bomber. Pour is very dark brown with a light tan head, laces well. Smell is brown sugar, with light coffee notes. Taste is sweet with caramel and a touch of coffee and chocolate, faint note if hops. Very smooth and drinkable, doesn't blow me away, but nothing off with it either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle split at Dadsgving, thanks, 24/11/13. Hazed dark amber with a moderate light beige head. Nose is dark malts, toffee, brown bread, light cocoa. Taste comprises toffee, grain, very light roast, fruit cake. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry closure. Ok - kind of a porter light/brown ale hybrid. Nothing I’d rush back to mind.
