Drank from the bottle at my campsite at the Grand Canyon. Aroma of brown sugar and oak. Has a woodsy flavor with hoppiness of an English IPA

thin, smokey bock, light brown in color. not particularly appealing, too heavy to be refreshing but too thin on the body to be a full weight bock.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from TW; poured a very dark caramel/orange with a big off white head. Aroma of smoked wood/camping, caramel, meat and a touch of dark fruit. Palate was a bit thin. Flavor was solid, but too mellow. Some slightly sweet caramel up front gives way to the smokiness. Finish was not too long. Some earthiness hops in the finish. Better than expected.

Quite a deal of sweetness in both the aroma and flavor. Still, this is pretty good. Has some nut brown characteristics as well.

Saw these last week at Papago Brewing Company. They are part of a new series that is to "revolutionize craft beer". These flavor bombs that are placed in the bottle are to enhance the flavor of the beer as the beer conditions in the bottle. Cool concept, but not something that really enhanced the beer. Our Total Wine & More got this and the IPA, and I opened this last night after work. It’s good, don’t get me wrong. But the flavor bomb isn’t going to revolutionize the industry.

Brownish, hazelnut color with tan head. Very sweet caramel aroma and similar taste, a little nasty aftertaste too. Not very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big thanks to JPDurden24 for sharing all three of these. The 22oz bomber with bomb proof thick wax eventually poured amber with a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet prunes and brown sugar as well as a bit of smoky bacony rauch malts. The taste is similar with smooth sweet prunes and raisins and then a decent degree of smoky rauch malts and bacon notes. This is a little out there and with ruffled edges but decent enough and I’m enjoying the smattering of rauch malts this has.

Pours a brown color, big tan head. Their flavor bomb idea is novel, but damn guys...concentrate on a great beer before you start gimmicking it up. Boring, caramel, malt...meh.
