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

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2008
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and very malty, which gives it notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with quite a lot of alcohol and malt as well as a touch of whiskey.

(Bottle) Pours a mahogany body with a moderate creamy off-white head. Complex nose of Christmas fruit cake dominated by cherries and nuts, caramel, clove, and other spices. Flavor of breadiness, fruit, and caramel with a chewy and alcoholic finish.

argo0 (11653) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Hazy copper body with small beige head. Aroma is strongly spiced (ginger, cinnamon, clove). Taste is spiced (ginger, clove, light orange peel), finishing with pine/grapefruit. Light alcohol warming. Medium body. The mix of spices evokes Christmas.

bhensonb (11533) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Very attractive pour. Strong caramel malt aroma. Slightly hazy reddish amber color. Frothy beige head that might lace, if it ever starts to collapse. Starts with sweet malt, accompanied by stone fruit and hop. This is more about malt than hop, and thatís probably appropriate for this style. It stays the lighter side of sticky, and it disquises the alcohol very well. The finish tends toward well balanced, and a very pleasant bitter (along with a bit of sweet fruit) remains in the mouth. Good one.

The Lure:
Diacetyl apples and caramel cherries repulse most, save for those with a fat tooth.

The Festivities:
Yeasty bitterness and miscellaneous fruit thankfully are left alone by the looming butter monster. Itís only a question of time though Iím sure. Body is light and boring, and does not nurture nor does it encourage quaffing.

Transcendence:
Too much butter is bad for the heart.
