Bright copper-brown colored, very thin head. Mild aroma of candied apricots. Medium bodied - well attenuated - in a more authentically belgian way than other american examples of the style. Very drinkable, but lacking the malt complexity or big punch of flavor needed to rate it higher.

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for sending. Pours a mahogany color with white head. Malty, toast, slight yeast aromas. Biscuit, malty, and a little caramel in the flavor with a touch of sourness at the end. A little off for a belgian dubbel. Not my favorite.

22oz bottle $4, affordable as always which is nice. Clear amber in color, looks like Fat Tire, what a blast from the past. Smells odd, malty, Belgian? Who knows? I don’t care but the taste was odd, malt biscuit, a tad bit of belgian yeast but I was hoping for something more here. What, hell if I know....

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
March 9, 2012 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel. Bomber (Brewmaster Reserve 2011) c/o blankboy. Slightly hazy deep amber with a smallish but lasting light tan frothy head (4-). Really mild aroma - floral, only light Belgian caramel spicy malt, mostly floral. Taste is nice - pungently sweaty, tons of yeasty caramel and fruit, some alcohol presence. Fairly thick, acceptable carbonation, finishes quickly with just an odd hint of sourness - would like a bit more spiciness.
