Draught, Fred’s Rivertown Alehouse, Snohomish, WA
Red colour. Slightly toasty aroma. A little bit malty on the palate. Full enough body despite not having much flavour. Slightly earthy finish. You won’t really notice this beer over the course of the pint but you’ll enjoy it at least a little bit.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Whidbey Beer Works. Pours very dark ruddy amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is creamy/malty. Mildly sweetish. Med. body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is pretty toffee tinged. Not all that sweet and there’s some hop underlayer that keeps it ok. But that caramel/toffee aspect sticks around.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Dark brown beer with good off-white head. Bit of bready nose and some caramel. Excellent little-sweet flavour. Surprisingly crisp - in the good way - greenery character. Medium bodied, rounded, sweet aftertaste and a bit toasted. For such a dreary style, really excellent - gets extra point for that.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber pours deep clear copper with off white head. The aroma has loads of chewy sweet smelling kettle caramelization with a touch of dark fruitiness in the background. The taste is similar with ample amounts of sweet caramel followed by a modest level of crystal malts and some dark fruitiness. There’s a light roasted malt note leading to some drying astringency to help balance out the sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Crystal clear deep ruddy dark amber with thin grayish head and decent lacy sheets. Nice malty sweet caramel on the nose without a doubt. Medium body with nice soft well-balanced carb. Rich caramel and light crackery toast on the mid-palate. Perfectly modulated leafy, peppery hop finish that washes into a nice resiny cling.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle   Copper with a deep red tinge, thing sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Malty nose, a
little mealy and nutty.   Low hop, if at all.   Some cereal.   Really nutty and mealy on the tongue,
semi-sweet, with faint wet cardboard and overcooked vegetable on the finish.   Has a certain malty aspect that
seems very cereal like.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as interesting as other reds.   A little
too mealy and cereal like for my tastes.   Prefer Brian Boru over this one.   Not bad, but just not my style I

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Nose is buttery, caramel, toffee, earthy, a little toast and roast. Not sure if the butter is a line cleaning issue or actually a problematic beer, as DK usually has solid qc IMO. Pours dark reddish auburn, a little foam on top. THe flavor also is malty with bread, toast, toffee, caramel, earthy hops. A little butter in the flavor as well. WIsh it did not have the butter, as the malty notes were interesting and enjoyable. Will have to revisit.
