3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours hazy brownish orange with a nice beige head. Aroma is extremely malty--it smells cloying. It’s full of caramel, raisins and fruity esters (apple). The taste is, as expected, really sweet. It has a toasted bread character. Despite the almost over-the-top sweetness, it finishes quite bitter. Full-bodied with an oily texture. It’s still not cloying after half a glass, thankfully. I fear it will get just that if I let it warm up any more, however.

Bottle from my dad. Medium brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel, almost fruity, and a little nutty. Taste is sweet, alcohol, dark fruit, and more sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Off tan head with long lasting duration. Aroma was caramel, molasses, dark sugars. Light brown and reddish for the body. The taste was overwhelmingly boozy. You can tell right away this is a high abv beer. Hard to taste any hops behind the booze and alcohol. There is a slight hop finish on the end, but it is mostly the warmth from the abv.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a thick off white head that sticks around due to the high amount of carbonation. Sweet carmel malt and brown sugar taste with a good amount of hop additions to balance the malt. The alcohol is noticable from start to end. Very filling finish.

Pours a dark amber with red tinge. Aromas of rich malts, nuts, caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Flavours of toffee, caramel, sourdough, cane sugar, raisins. I found this beer coated my mouth and left a boozy-bitter aftertaste.
