3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (release #4). Pours dark brown and looks black once in the glass and shows a soapy off white head thad fades to a film and soapy collar with spotty lacing. Aroma is strong pumpkin spice and roasted malt and faint coffee. Taste is a good solid mix of coffee and coco with pumpkin all around as well as a good bitterness throughout. Palate is medium and chalky with a dry finish. Really nice brew, Just wish the palate was a little more full and creamy.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Refrigerated brown bomber, release #15, poured into a snifter. Black with medium brown highlights and with small beige head. Aroma is vanilla/pumpkin/some roastiness, medium body, medium/light carbonation, and good small-bubble lacing. Taste is marshmallow, vanilla, some spice, some pumpkin, and some chocolate. Pretty easy to drink, alcohol is well covered, and overall pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with medium head. Aromas of pumpkin for sure with chocolate, vanilla, spices, maltiness. Taste is a rich chocolate, pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves. A different pumpkin beer as the malts were the hero here. Actually I think this is my first pumpkin porter. Great finishing palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ruby black with a dense tan head of about a cm. Aroma is earthy with peanut butter, nutmeg, and other spices in the aroma. Taste is a letdown from the aroma, but still good, with more pumpkin character, and vegetal astringency that I have come to expect in pumpkin beers. $6/22oz

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. 7.5 % ABV. Release #3. Pours deep mahogany with a medium beige lacy head. The head holds itself up well. Aroma is toasty pumpkin pie. Taste is lightly sweet, roasty; finishes dry and faintly tart. Has a bit of a nutty flavor. The pumpkin and spices are there but I wish the flavors were more prominent. It’s good but I was hoping to be blown away.
