Bomber. Meh. Not my favorite style an not close to a top example of it. It would be a nice macro conversion beer though.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2011
2011 vintage Pours a very dark ruby color with plum colored edges and a one finger off-white head immediately settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Sweet, slightly spicy aroma With lots of sweet roasted malts and estery dark fruit notes. Thereís also a syrupy, medicinal presence that is kind of off-putting. Lots of zesty pepper followed by biscuity, caramel malt along with hints of plum, raisin and other dark fruit. Medium bodied with a balance of zesty spice, toasted malt and sweet fruit. The syrupy medicinal presence from the nose is evident but not as prominent as expected. Still, it takes away from the flavor of the beer because itís metallic and not very pleasant. Lots of peppery spice followed by sweet malt, giving off hints of rye, biscuit and caramel. This is complimented by the sweet dark fruits, especially date, plum and raisin. Some boozy sweetness/heat in the finish but overall the ABV is decently masked. Overall this is an average interpretation of the style. The spice character is a bit heavy and the medicinal qualities really hurt the flavor. Kind of a mess that needs more balance.

2011 version. Starts off with an aroma of sourness and dirty gym socks. Not what I was expecting. Very pretty dark amber with a small off-white head. Taste was very sour at first but lessened as it warmed up and then revealed some sweet caramel and toasted malt flavors. Still, it left an overall sour flavor coating my mouth. Had to check the other reviews now and I donít see anyone mentioning sour, so I have to assume I got a bad bottle. Iíll see if I can find another one to re-rate.

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.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear red/orange pour with a thin off-white head. Dank and musty malt aroma with some banana. Cloying sweet flavor with caramel, cherry and banana character. Not my thing.

This beer is too much soda like, cola in particular. Full Sail is nothing special from experience.
