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

Sampled ’07 vintage at Bailey’s 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 ;-)

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Johns Market Place in Portland, OR. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of cherry, candi sugar, and mild spice. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of caramel malt, candi sugar, a hint of leather, and some raisins. Finish is semi-sweet with some alcohol warmth, brown sugar and a raisin aftertaste.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2009
Bottle courtesy of gunhaver. Pours clear copper with thin white head. The aroma is pretty full with brown sugar, prunes, raisins and ripe cherries. The taste is dark fruity sweet with raisins, smooth sweet cherries and prunes followed by brown sugar. It dries out a bit into the finish with a pulse of sweet malts taking the experience into the after taste.

Pours yellow-brown with a slight white head. Nose is phenol, fruit, booze, sugar, and some caramel. Flavor is malty, spice, and some floral qualities. Nice floral hoppy finish. Interesting winter brew. It has neither tannens, nor the bomb within, though.

spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Dark amber with a small cream color head, fair lacings. Aroma is spicy, caramel. Taste is roasted malts with just enough hops to balance this powerhouse brew. Alcohol is fairly well masked in the taste. The effect is much more evident though. Nice winter brew. Not a session beer!

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Another one of those instances where the name is far superior to the actual beer. Disappointing but not awful.
