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

12 oz bottle. Aroma is like a fresh sweet caramel apple. Deep red body with off white head. Body had just enough mix of malt and bitterness. Sweet candy flavors along with some spicey bitterness. Good on the palate the bitterness lingers abit. Good Brew.

Draft: pours a dark red color with a 1 finger off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, some dried fruit and a little citrus/floral hops. Flavor is quite malty sweet and a fairly thick creamy body. There is light dark fruit flavors and then a strong hop bite with plenty of bitterness to back up the malty sweetness. Huge malt sweetness with big hop bitterness. Kind of like an imperial Amber. Pretty damn good evening drinker.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2007
Very malty brew. The body’s a somewhat hazy caramel and the skinny ecru head haloes almost immediately. It has an aroma of caramel, some toffee, apples, and a mild herbal bitterness. That bitterness increases in the flavor, but dusty caramel and a bit of alcohol carry it. Okay.

Bottle shared by Degarth. Thanks, bro. Pours a reddish brown/ruby color, with a dirty tan head. Light lacing and medium head retention. Nose is malt, caramel, sweet fruits, herbal notes. Fore is lightly astringent, malt and caramel. The herbal notes come through to the back of the tongue. Finish is sweet, malty, and a bit smoky.

Pop the cap and smell cherry, folllowed by caramel & sour. not what I remember it being, but hey I like sour beers. slightly cloudy copper with thin tan head. smooth on the tongue at first but the sourness wears away. tastes sour, with the cherry hints, straw & alcohol

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Pours a transparent copper bronze with a nicely-lacing off-white head. Aroma of earthy English hops and sweet pale malt. Body starts with a full earthy caramel malty sweetness with some drier bittering hoppy notes and a touch of light fruity complexity. A nice English strong ale that hides its alcohol well.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Poured a amber color with a thin off-white head. Huge diacetyl aroma over some caramel. The flavor is of bitter caramel with a sharp bitter finish. Slick diacetyl mouthfeel.

12 oz bottle via Liquid Solutions. Pours a clear reddish brown with a large beige head. Nose is a funky sweet and sour-caramel & cheeries. Tastes the same, the sounress is like sour apples & cherries. This one has gone sour/infected. Crap, i was looking forward to this.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2007
Bottle via trade with kenb, cheers! Pours a hazy, dark copper color, with a medium sized, creamy, tan colored head, nice lacing. Aroma is malt, sweet cherries, citrus, pine. Flavor is tart at first, then sweetens, cherry, caramel, floral hops, citrus, alcohol, there’s a lot going on here. Palate is medium-full, mildly carbonated, sweet, yet tart finish. Awesome, I love this! I musta got a great bottle, but this was really nice.

HopDuvel99 (39) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Dark copper with a small, fleeting, light tan head. Hoppy aroma with malty/alcoholic undertones. Full body, lightly carbonated, slippery mouthfeel. Hoppy, then sweet and malty, then hoppy again in the finish and aftertaste. Powerful, unique, memorable.
