3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours clear deep amber with a rather big frothy goldenish offwhite head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and slightly malty with heavy caramel, resinous wood, toffee, alcohol, grapefruit rinds, sweet dark bread, pine needles and orange zest. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and earthy with heavy caramel, toffee, resinous wood, grapefruit rinds, moist tobacco, pine needles, alcohol, minerals and orange zest. Mouthfeel is round, sticky, viscous and medium to full bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, bitter and earthy with caramel, toffee, resinous wood, alcohol, grapefruit rinds, pine needles and orange zest. Exactly what I expected it to and hoped it to be: A caramel and resin punch in the face!

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2014 Kopparfärgad / rödaktig med stort ljusbrunt skum som ligger kvar runt glaset! Doftar mycket karamellmalt och lite söt. Smaken är fyllig och bra kolsyrad med massor med malt och lite humle och en bra beska! God öl!
