jbruner (2836) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 30, 2015
Bomber sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2015! Pours a hazy copper brown with dissipating off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big dark fruit, hint of Belgian esters, sweet tannins. Taste follows, hint of sour cherry, great for the style. Boozy sweetness, but not over the top. Really nice beer.

Wax-dipped bomber. Best After 4/22/15. Aroma is oaky, coconut, vanilla, cookie dough, red licorice, brown sugar, dark fruits. Pours cloudy amber with a one finger beige head that collapses fairly quick. Taste starts out sweet and cookie-like before dark fruit, imparting some tartness, alcohol, tobacco, leather and licorice kick in. Full-bodied oily mouthfeel. Really tasty.

Big bottle with commonmac and rosskyle. Dark plum with small white head. Dark fruit tartness in the nose, smells somewhat sour. Raisin and dark fruit, tangy bite. Little bits of yeast funk, lots of alcohol taste. Sour dark fruit and raisin dominates but in a good way. Fits the style very well.

I'm a big fan of barrel aged beers and this is a good choice. The best thing about it is a wonderful aftertaste. The alcohol taste is slightly strong. - Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (749) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2015
22oz bottle, poured into a snifter. The nose is full of roasted notes with undertones of caramel, dried fruit, woody bourbon, herby spice, a light vanilla, and further down, candy sugar, with a late touch of acetone warmth. Itís a deep and oily orange-brown, amber with sediment thatís topped by a foamy, soapy head. It retains a medium thin ring, some surface wisps, and a light, dense lace. The taste is a high sweetness complimented by a medium high bitter. The beer is thick and oily with a fuzzy carbonation. The full body contains a dominant flavor of dried fruit, with complimentary notes of wood and spice and a caramel character that strengthens near the end of the bottle. It finishes spicy and dry with a fruity zest. Itís crisp with a nice alcohol warmth on the way down. The aftertaste is astringent with waxy citrus peel and light notes of toffee and wood.
