Almost opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Very light spice. Slight dark malt vibe. Little toffee - treacle and bruised fruit. Fairly dry finish. Tasty but not seducing me.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very dark brown with a foamy/creamy dark tan head. Aroma of earthy chocolate. Med body more or less. Flavor is earthy chocolate. A chocolate saison? It sort of fits. It’s dry, dark, tasty. Definitely close to the edge.

hopscotch (10130) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle... Murky dark-brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. The nose is nutty and chocolaty - walnuts stand out. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. Much like the aroma, the flavor is bittersweet, chocolaty and nutty. Finishes minerally and lightly sweet. Kudos to newcigarz for popping the top on this bottle!
