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

Uh oh. Looks like some people had some sour beers here. Acquired mine through a trade with Larry Pitonka, Thanks Andre! Pours a deep ruby amber with a thin off white head and some light lacing. Aroma is thcik with toasted and caramel malts, vanilla phenols, lgith spice, and some fruity esters. Tons of thick toasted and bitter-like sweet malts, lightly hoppy, earthy, sticky sweet, and lightly astringent and very appropriate tannin-like harshness in the end. Pretty good english ale overall. Nice and not infected at all.

Bottle: I couldn’t even take a third sip of this beer, all I got was sourness and acidity.

Thanks to Batkins for this one. This one had soured badly. The standout here was that I did get some almost some port like fruit notes but this baby had gone off and left it undrinkable. Sorry.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 18, 2006
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a light reddish amber color with a small amount of tan bubbles along the edges of the glass. Rich malts, funky yeast, subtle fruits, grassy bitterness and alcohol notes. Watery texture and mild carbonation. Has a small zing to it. Ending is malty with notes of fruit and alcohol.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2006
shared bottle, opened by dirtymike. Amber in color. Aroma is funky malt. Taste is funky and sour malts, with alot of stinky vegetable soup armpit. This one obviously didn’t hold up very well.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange red with medium beige head. The aroma is caramel and a sour cherry note that I was not at all expecting, along with some wood and sugar. The flavor has lots of brown sugar at first, then some serious raisin and caramel malt notes. The finish is sweet with a little bit of ash. Possibly overdone, but tasty nonetheless.

skoisirius (1580) - Earth, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2006
12 oz bottle (thanks to someone from Belmont Station!) into a Trappist glass. Pours a deep copper red color with little head. Aroma brings a carmalized malt and brown sugar sensation to the nose. Deep notes of plums and dark cherries are hinted at as well. The flavor starts out with a sweet malt moving into a dark fruit of raisins and plums. This gets over taken by a nicely done cinammon spice kick with the brown sugar intertwined. Definitely has a sweet aftertaste and heavy malt to it. In between medium and full-bodied. Nothing overly complex, but quite enjoyable!!

A beautifully presented reddish, amber winter warmer. A complex aroma of brown sugar, raisins, plums, and a hint of resin hops. Flavor is comprised of a strong maltiness including but not limited to plums and raisins and leaves a lingering taste of candy sugar in the mouth. Packs a punch at 8% ABV which is noticeable in the aroma and flavor. A well crafted beer!

Nugget (30) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Pours a dark orange-amber, reminiscent of Jolly Roger. Nose reminds me of fruit leather. Tastes very malty and robust but smooth with a slight hop finish. A very worthy Xmas beer.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 19, 2006
little bit of a lace on this brown bodied ale, roasty hop flavor, well balanced malt variation, dry finish slightly tart, crispy and crunchy, quite refreshing and very tastey
