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.
