4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Half Time. Pours dark brown with a creamy 4 finger beige/tan head. Aroma (through a lot of foam) is dark malt, chocolate and probably resin hop. Full bodied. Flavor is lots of hop, chocolate, maybe a touch of coffee, definitely pretty darkly roasted malt. It has that brown ale malt flavor, but mixed with other things. Floral finish? Can’t say no, but the flavors are so strong I’d never have seen that on my own. Complex and amazing ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Paul and James at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels, late on Saturday night (Sunday morning) during the pre-wedding celebration. Pours brown with a thick, off-white foam. Bit of toast and leafy hops in the nose. Decent flavor, medium sweet, with toast, dry caramel, bit of bread, mild dirt and leaves. Medium bodied with average to high carbonation. Mild dry finish, some toasted leaves, light cocoa and caramel. Doesn’t blow me away, but it’s OK. Some lingering dirty, floral bitterness.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A: The beer pours a clear brown color with a tall tan colored head.
S: Smells strongly of burnt rubber. There’s definitely some citrus character to it, so it seems at least a little bit hoppy. Maybe a bit of burnt bread. Just a really off, harsh aroma, though.
T: Doesn’t taste very good either. Quite a bit of rubber on the flavor as well. Some toasted malt and charred malt. A little bit of booze. Maybe some earthy hop notes.
M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: I hope that this beer isn’t supposed to taste like this because it was just awful.
