COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tannen Bomb has been rated third in the nation and seventh internationally in its class by the Beverage Testing Institute for two years in a row. This is a classic Strong Ale with over one hundred and ten pounds blended Pale, Carastan, and Crystal malts per barrel. This is a beer of true character and distinction. The bold malt complex is well balanced and refined with generous hopping of Chinook, Liberty, and Fuggles, and dry-hopped with Kent Goldings for an aromatic

On tap at the brewery. Pours a reddish copper color with a medium tan head. The aroma is light caramel, some spices, crystal malts. The flavor is more light spices, toffee, some sweet fruity malts, caramel. Smooth. Fine beer.

Decent warmer, had better but also had worse. Not too distinct, but they didnít go overboard on the sweet.

Bottle. Sweet malty base with some dark fruit, spice and orange rinds. Smooth finish with a touch of pine.

Livid (49) - - JAN 25, 2012
22oz bottle. Pours a dark, slightly hazy copper color with a meager head. Funky nose, smells tangy and faintly of caramel and molasses. Thin body for a bigger beer. Apricot flavors, caramel, toffee, and a tang that I can almost describe as salty. Interesting and complex, but much better on draft at the brewery.

cmonster (966) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bomber served in a tulip. Pours hazy orange-brown with minimal head. Nice aroma of brown sugar, dates, caramel and earthy funk. Sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth texture, low carbonation, and a malty finish.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2011
A rich and festive red ale. A stiff and robust nose. In the mouth it is sweet, strong and full of fruit. Long and rosy in the finish. Sleek and a little oily. Definitely warming, caramelly and intensely fruity. Similar to some barley-wines.

BelgianBeerGal (3103) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2011
Traded bottle. Pours a nice, clear copper color with a medium khaki head. The light aroma is oranges and pink grapefruit hops, very much Pacific NW. Surprisingly enough the hops donít dominate the flavor. The richer malt really shows here. I think itís good but possibly a little disjointed.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Dark caramel ruby, small pale sandy head, looked flat until i aggressively poured it. Earthy caramel, young oak aroma. Silky smooth, tannic caramel medium body, kind of works, at times seems combative. Stemmy wood, little pine edge. Enjoyed more with each sip.

Sampled í07 vintage at Baileyís Taproom CellarFest (2010). Decent enough beer, but a bit disappointing. Pretty balanced...a little on the sweet side. I actually like the beer a bit better now reading that it is an English Strong Ale as I was told it was a Barleywine before I drank it. Definitely a better Strong Ale than a BW ;-)
