NYE bottle share at Proof. Pours a deep reddish amber brown with a decent amount of light tan head. Collar holds really well. Aroma is caramel, some medium roasted malt, and a little bit of dark fruits. Taste is very earthy, some caramel. Very low carbonation and medium-high body.

Burnt sienna with a tiny of red. Fast diminishing head, very malty and intense toffee nose. Plums, intense roasted coffee beans in taste. Thin but long lingering...Wolfgang :)

Nice color--luscious brown. But no head. Huge caramel malt body. Sweet as all hell. Unbitter. Full body. Smooth. Nice alcohol to support the heaviness.

"Super nice malty aroma and flavor. Breadline, yes, but it is also distinctly Great Divide. They have a common theme with their malty stuff that I absolutely love, though strict traditionalists may cringe. If you like Hibernation, you’d like this."

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a finger of head on a cloudy brown colored body.
The aroma is dry hay, caramel and grain.
The taste starts off with a mild lemon bitter and quickly moves to caramel and malty sweetness that carries through to the end. The finish is long and sweet.
The texture is sticky with moderate carbonation.
A solid drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 7-10-2012 (Draft at Dash-In - Fort Wayne, IN) This beer has a small creamy smooth beige head with a short retention, transparent reddish brown body, no lacing observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, roasty and rich. The flavor is caramel malt, roasty, toffee, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and has a lingering roasty aftertaste that is not offensive. This beer is worth trying. More please!

Usually not a big fan of the style, this was pretty good. Malt forward with caramel and bread. The flavor was caramel and bread too with a nice balance. Very easy going down.

Bottle. Really great beer. Dark amber in color with a nice head. Aroma is fruit bread and roasted grains. Taste is a wonderful complex flavor with a sweet fruit cake up front and a suprising hoppy finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottled about this day last year. Subtle dark fruit aroma with caramel and some toffee. Pours caramel colored with a thin light brown head and excellent lacing. Great dark fruit, caramel and toffee malt flavors to start with a very lively, malty mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with all of the flavors mentioned lingering on the palate long after the sip is finished. Nice doppelbock.
