How I Spent My Christmas: Big bomber. Pours a somewhat hazy copper color, thick head, great lacing. Aroma is bread and malt, with some banana notes. Flavor is a robust mix of malt and yeast, with some caramel notes. There is a strong alcohol undertone as well, and at the end I pick up something that reminds me of olive oil. Not too bad.

Full-bodied beer. Really grabs ahold of your tastebuds and doesn't willingly let go. Beautiful coloring. Nice head.

Pretty good. Tastes complex like a barley wine, but a little light like a lager. Very interesting beer that Iíd buy again and again if it didnít cost so much.

I like this beer a lot. A lot of good malty sweetness and a nice smooth body. I like this beer better than most barleywines Iíve had and a lot better than every lager/bock Iíve ever had.....

MaBeer1972 (1368) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Bomber from Wines & More in Milford CT. Poured into a snifter. A very dark brown brew with a frothy tan head that settles to a thin lace. Sweet, earthy aromas. Flavor is sweet and thick of earthy chocolate, fig, coffee and licorice notes. Quite boozy. Lingering coffee notes.

slowrunner77 (6084) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bready as a doppelbock should be, maybe with a little more extra spiced quality that doesnít really fit...but is not altogether unpleasant either. Medium bodied and malty, a touch below average for a style I like, but enjoyed.

Bottle. deep red-orange pour with a nice tan head. Dark fruit, caramel, quite malty in both flavour and aroma. Quite boozy throughout. medium-heady body with a warming finish.

The body is deep rich reddish orange amber color with good clarity. The head is light tan in color, thick and slow fading. On the way down the glass as I sip it leaves behind nice lace rings. In the nose I pick up a big sweet malty bomb with a heavy boozy resiny pine character as well. On the tongue there is bold malty grain sweetness with some fruit notes and deep boozy warmth. Hop flavor is right up there as well with resiny pine and citrus oil like flavor. Hop bitterness slowly cuts through malt sweetness and lingers on in the finish. Its palate has a thick full body and texture with light muted carbonation.

Cloudy honey brown color, him yellow foam, small soft bubbles. Aroma of toasted malt, corn, alcohol, yeast, spices and sugar. Taste is harsh on the tongue. Carbonation is medium. Alcohol disguised quite well. A nice lager.

From a 1 pint bottle. Strong malty aroma with rich roasted flavours and a hint of hops. It is a beer to be savoured with itís strong alcohol content and warming flavour.

AgentAle (790) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
Aroma is a rich malt character with some caramel notes and floral hops. Taste is a rich maltiness with a fruity taste and slight liquor snap on the tip. Well balanced malt and hop finish. Clear dark amber body with a creamy head with good retention.
