3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle. One of the best browns I’ve tried. Looks and smells the part, and the flavour is rich and filled with nuts, chocolate and caramel. There are clearly some earthy Brithops in there, and there seems to be a touch of piney American hops in there as well. The only drawback is that the body could be a little fuller. Overall, an excellent example of the style.

On tap @ RnH. Dark brown pour w red hue. Small to medium off-white head. Aroma is of hops, unroasted nuts like almonds and sweetbread or pumpernickel. I think of a bakery when first walking in. Palate is smooth with light nuttiness and no roast, a big plus in the style for me. Some dried fruit even -- maybe a remnant of the last offering, but I taste it. Easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Premiere. A sweet aroma. Enormous soapy head, lacey. Long bitter finish. In a word: nutty brown. Very drinkable Hops and malting is so balanced. Better than its rating in the sense that I would serve this regular to people if available down the street. Great for the style.
