You know, it’s hard work to write a book. I can’t tell you how many times I really get going on an idea, then my quill breaks. Or I spill ink all over my writing tunic...

Bomber to taster at the RBWG Grand Tasting (thanks burg326). Looks good; a mostly opaque coffee color with thin off-white lacing. Smells of dark malt and roast. Tastes like it smells with a good, light mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Surprisingly hoppy aroma. Light roast, but the malt is mostly lighter grains. A little corny.
