2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep amber pour. Pretty hazy. Mild off white head and mild lacing. Belgian ale like estery aroma which seems out of place. Dark fruit, spiciness, and mild banana. Pick up a bit of caramel sweetness and breadiness. No nuts in aroma. Flavor starts off with a lot if plum and raisin. That taste mellows out to show some nuttiness and slight hop flavors, but definitely still heavy on yeast flavors. Not what I was expecting.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter clear brown with a off white head.
Aroma is nutty. Subtle hops.
Flavor is sweet. Better than many brown ales of which I am not a huge fan but find this brew very drinkable. Smooth. Very nice.

Bomber. Rich nutty aroma with notes of caramel sweetness. Pours clear brown colored with a mediocre tan head with pretty good retention and a little lacing. Rich nutty flavor and texture with a good resemblance to Brazil nuts. Finishes smooth with sweet caramel lingering on the palate at the end. Decent brown ale.

(bottle - 500 ml) Murky brown with a thin head. Oddly sweet and nutty aroma with some light malts. Flavor is odd as well. Definitely get the hint of Brazil nuts in it, which I found out I’m not a fan of. But if you like them, you’ll like this.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rich hazy light brown coloured body with a glow of copper and bronze and an interesting, almost neon green glow when held up to a light, all with a single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of nuts, earth, alcohol, caramel and a lot of honey. Full-bodied; Deep earthy and pungent nut flavour with a big bitterness of metal, malt, medicine and cough syrup. Aftertaste has more alcohol notes than anything else with the nuts and earth hitting hard, some caramel and toffee also, but the bitterness from the metal and malt is overwhelming. Overall, a beer that was below expectations, but true to the consensus here on RB - not so great. I sampled this 600 mL stubby bottle purchased from Central Market in Houston, Texas on 10-August-2013 for US$8,99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-July-2014, but wasn’t worth saving this long nor the trip home from Texas.
