Bottle. Dark brown with a large off white head. Nose and taste are very similar. Nutty with chocolate, a touch of hops and an almost lager like yeast character. Medium mouthfeel with solid carbonation. This is tasty but not exceptional.

22oz bomber. Pours a medium brown color with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Aroma is of roasted and nutty malts. Tastes slightly bitter up front, with a sweet caramel like malt backbone, and subtle nuttiness.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ugh - maybe I let this sit around too long in my cellar? Massive tan head on the pour taking up almost the entire glass. Looks like foam from a root beer float. Taste is a bit of bitter, alcohol and a bittersweet finish. Blarg.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a moderate off-white head. Nose is very slight, but there is a faint alcohol smell to this. Taste is somewhat malty with a slight kick of bitterness on the finish. Fairly light and smooth, but subtle flavors.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22oz bottle. Medium brown color, tan foam. Head looks like seafoam. Kinda had a dirty pour, seems to have been over bottle conditioned. Scents of citrus hops, musty toasted cereal. Sour flavor, over carbonated. Hints of toasted grains and wood. Overall, it tastes like a beer that had been aged in a barrel sitting forgotten in someoneís garage. (3571)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from jtclockwork, thanks James! Pours a lightly hazed, brown colored body with a bit of an orange hue around the edges. Finger-width, dense and creamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweeter nutty caramels with a light toast, cocoa, and a hint of toffee-butter. A few dark fruit notes and a light earth. Flavor is similar. Nutty sweet caramels with a bit of a toasty toffee, cocoa, and a light dark fruit note. A decent earthiness and roast backing as this finishes dry and moderately bitter with a light malt sweetness to balance. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid, easy drinking and flavorable brown ale. Earthy and somewhat roasty with a nice nutty caramel and light cocoa malt backing. Enjoyable.

Bomber from Oak Tree Liquors S. Plainfield. Pours a hazy medium brown color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of nutty, chocolate malts, faint fruits. The taste is nutty notes, brown malts, chocolate, bitter hops. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bomber provided by jtclockwork. Thank you, sir. Pours a hazy brown color with a khaki colored head of foam. Decent retention. The aroma is actually quite hoppy, didnít see that one coming, with just a bit of bready, toffee presence going on. One of my friends said it had that "Three Floyds" quality to it. I could see where heís coming from. Itís probably hoppier than the style should tolerate, but itís good regardless. Taste is bitter at first, but moves on to a sweetness in the finish. Pretty tasty stuff.
