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

This has quickly become my favorite out of the winter seasonals. This is a true big beer, with alot of candy sugar and spice in the flavor and a huge malt backbone, with just enough hop character to give it some mouthfeel and to overlap the heat from the alcohol.

This is a great beer from a small brewery. Rich malty aroma, and a lovely brown color with almost no head. Malty caramel flavors, with just enough hops to put a little bite in the finish and balance the sweetness. An excellent winter warmer.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Brownish/red color,medium sized head that had a short amount of lasting time.The aroma was very nice,malty sweet with hints of fruit and mild hops,and just a faint hint of alcohol.The taste was fantastic malty upfront,sweet and mildly fruity then a nice well done amount of hops hit you.It also has a wine like character in the feel,with the after taste being malty and nicely hopped.This is one hell of a nice brew,flavorful and fairly well balanced makes me wish i bought more from L.S. but i guess 3 will have to do.Golden Valeey really seems to know how to do there brew,because i haven't run into a really terrible brew from them yet.

BBB63 (5946) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2003
The nice copper hue was topped with a creamy off-white head and some lace. The aroma hinted of cimmamon, clove, dusty yeast, very aromatic hops and buttery french toast. The taste starts very English, smooth and mild. But there is the manditory northwestern pine hop finish. I think there is a law requiring bitter hops in ALL styles of brew. The blended balance works well with this beer. Very nice brew, recommended, Thanks again, ArGo0.

Reddish amber color. Small head. Aroma is spicy (cinnamon and clove) and fruity. A medium bodied “strong ale”. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are piney and grapefruity. Lots of winter spices in the beer, cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of clove and ginger. Well balanced. Smooth taste. Nice winter warmer. Hides the 8% alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle pours a clear deep red color with a small beige head and no lace. The aroma is slightly berry like and floral notes of hops. The flavor is very complex. There is quite a spectrum of malt flavors along with fruity ale characteristics that show through in a symphony. Malt sweetness starts the show, with an ale berry fruitiness, some roasted malt showing an almost chocolate covered cherry flavor, all followed by a lingering hop bitterness that almost gives a sensation of bitter chocolate combined with the roast flavors. The palate is rich, real rich. This is a fine Ale. Many thanks to my cousin for hauling from OR.

Dark murky burgundy color. Strong brown sugar, alcohol and cinnamon aroma with a sweet maple, peanut and scotch flavor. Bitter finish, overall very nice.

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.

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.

A generous, warm, loving old ale type ale. It is just a lovely flavored beer that is very warming with lots of caramelly flavors.
