3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
So i was just looking for a simple nice beer to enjoy tonight and this well out did my expectations. Bomber poured into a pint glass. deep black color with some brown edges in the light. Light tan one finger head. The aroma is a pine and brown sugar. I think of it as molasses spice cake with burnt edges. A lovely sweet smell. The taste is a little roasted malt with bitterness and some oily orange zest just kicking in at the end. Taste fades fast. Refreshing for such an aromatic and flavorful beer. very slight linger of bitter in the finish. Best clown shoes beer I have had.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
650mL bottle, pours black with a 2 finger tan head and a coffee aroma with a hint of hop resin on the nose. The roasted malts seem to dominate the flavour so ill let it warm up a little an come back. Picking up the ash and esspresso as well as a hop backround but as i said the dark malts dominate.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dee deep back pour. Very malty. Both in taste and aroma. Crosses that line into stout much more so than other black lagers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is burnt malt, hops, and dark chocolate. The taste is bitter burnt malts, orange peel hops, and a slight chocolate sweetness. The aftertaste is long and reminds me of charcoal. A little one-sided, I like bitter beers as much as the next guy but I was wishing this was a little more balanced.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very semilucent dark ruby with medium brown head that lingers. Small lacing. Smoky and roasted malt aromas. Coffee. Underlying herbal hops appreciated. Moderate carbonation, full bodied, chewy palate. Medium bitterness with well balanced richness from the malts. Medium bitter finish. This is a well made beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottled 2/12 into a Duvel tulip. Pours a dark ruby brown with a huge tan head and lots of bubbles. Decent lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, malts, leather, and grass. Taste is malty up front. Citrus flavors come in with a bit of pine and cream. It finishes with a slightly sweet and smokey flavor. Mouthfeel is thin to medium and goes down pretty easy. Not bad.
