BB 21-03-13, opened 04-07-2013. Black beer with a medium head. Very sweet bread on the nose, ripe dark fruits, raisins. Sweet caramel with roastiness. Very soft and silky smooth mouth feel. Full body. This hasn’t got the same bitterness as the fresh stuff but it still is quite wonderful. I love this both ways.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 Bomber shared at home. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of dark sugars - molasses, treacle, demerara. Touch of honey on the taste. Could do with a touch more balancing bitterness, but otherwise very nice. Good carbonation, body, mouthfeel and finish.

Copper in color with a boozy head. Aromas of caramel, herbal hops, toffee, and just a hint of oak impression. Flavors of caramel, oak, herb hops, and a slight hint of pepper. Medium sweet and lightly bitter. Not really any stand out flavor except for the peppery note. A good balance of malt and hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. The colour is dark nut brown with a beige medium head. Sweet aroma of coffee, leather, brown sugar, caramel, cocoa and some licorice. The flavour has more chocolate, lactose, and roasted malt in the background with coffee and something reminiscent of Baileys liqueur. Has a smooth and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A sweet ale but is balanced and tasteful.
