JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2008
Deep ruddy amber beer. Slightly sweet rich toasted malt aroma. Chewy sweet, caramel and toast with a soft toffeeish character as well. Fairly dirty and rancid backnotes behind the otherwise solid malts. Well-named, really.

650 ml bottle from Bevmo. Light brown with almost no head. Earthy hoppy aroma. Sweet caramel and alcohol taste with a big hoppy presence and decent bitterness. Gets better as it warms.

I haven’t rated a beer in a looong time. I had to write this just to say how bad this beer is. Horrible rotten garbage aroma and flavor on top of a burnt, piney tone. The flavors just do not blend well together. I can’t believe the brewers tasted this and okayed it to be bottled. YUK!

Ibrew2or3 (7344) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Bomber pours clear copper with tan head and decent lacing initially. The aroma brings up big dark fruity esters of plums, prunes, raisins, pepper and hard candy cherries. There’s also an alcohol note. The taste starts with a mixture of sweet malts, pale malts and a burst of dark fruitiness. Then it becomes increasingly fruity with prunes, sweet cherries, raisins, then a slight medicinal cherry cough syrup note along with mild pepper. It ends with lingering dark fruit notes, a hint of caramel malt sweetness and a bit of alcohol. Considering the age and the ABV the alcohol isn’t out of line. This can certainly use a couple of years on the shelf though.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - NOV 23, 2007
This beer completely lives up to its name. Phenolic nose with notes of rotten fruit and artificial sweetener. Sweet and oxidized palate with some burnt toffee and spruce tips. Sickening sweet high alcohol finish.

ChainGangGuy (4489) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Appearance: Pours a hazy, deep amber body with a large, creamy-looking off-white head. Smell: Alcoholic, sweet-smelling nose of caramel syrup and candied citrus fruits. Lesser notes of biscuits and pine needles as well. Taste: Sugary caramel flavor upfront followed by a variety of juicy citrus fruits, traces of pine, and a solid bitterness. The sweetness makes a rebound with hints of brown sugar coated biscuits. The candy sweet finish carries with it a palate-scorching alcohol bite. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Definite warming alcohol presence. Drinkability: Not so bad, all things considered, though it most certainly could benefit from further time away in the cellar.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 14, 2007
22 oz. bottle, from BevMo LaJolla. This pours beautiful, mostly clear bright reddish copper with a large fluffy head that lingers well. Aroma of sweetish maltiness, some caramel, citrus fruit, with hints of spice, but also a weirdish dusty cardboard scent. Flavor is way rich and malty, with soft ripe fruits, grapefruit and citrus hops, a little spice and noticible alcohol. Full body, smooth and gently carbonated.

BuckeyeBoy (3174) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 8, 2007
22oz Bottle pours out a amber topped with a nice off white cream head. A nice aroma of hops and sweetness. tast is a little thin. Some bitterness and some caramel sweetness. This one was a lot better than I was thinking it would be.

IrishBoy (3923) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 6, 2007
2007 Bomber from Bottle Barn; Nose of floral hops, plums, and caramel; Copper with a medium honey colored head; flavor has a little hop bitterness, brwon sugar, caramel, and raisins mixed with light alcohol. Pretty good and underrated for a young BW.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle: Amber in color, moderate off-white head, foamy, fairly attractive lacing.   Citrusy nose, slightly astringent, some orange peel/rind in there.   Noticing some alcohol as well.   Alcohol infused candied citrus rind on the tongue.   For now its better than expected.   Decent malt base, but not as much as I would have liked to see.   Somewhat perfumy, scented hairspray like.   Seems a bit rough around the edges, fairly young, green.   Doesn’t have that organic twang that I so often get.   Surprisingly smooth, given how rough it is.   Finish is fairly clean, warming, some alcohol notes, along with that somewhat astringent citrus rind.   Definitely young, alcoholic, and perfumy, with the ever present citrus twang.   Tiz okay I suppose... but definitely would be better with age.
