4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz., bottling date 6/14/12. Aroma of rich, dark, sweet, toasted, bready malts, with notes of toffee and pumpernickel, along with mild raisin and chocolate in the background. Impressive clear deep dark reddish-brown color, with a lasting, creamy, tan head. Flavor profile is similarly full of dark, gently sweet and toasty malt, dried dark fruit, faint roast and cocoa, but features some mild banana and not inconsiderable hop bitterness, increasing towards the finish, that were not hinted at in the nose. Some mild earthiness and spice appear towards the end as well. Finely and actively carbonated palate with a suitably hefty feel and body. This is a great Doppel. I’m certainly glad I sat on this for a few months until it cooled off outside.

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber bottled exactly one year ago today. Served at about 50 degrees in a pint glass. Pours a clear brandy hue with moderate carbonation. Fine thick head with moderate lacing. Delicious maltiness and slight hop presence. Alcohol is well hidden. This is the best American doppelbock I have tried and find it better than some German ones.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Right on the money doppelbock, malty and mildly sweet. Dark amber/brown body, aroma is sweet malt, molasses. Nice creamy head. Taste is also mostly malt, more subdued than the aroma, but right on target for the style.

Det här var riktigt fint, smaken var kanske lite konventionell och tråkig men ändå välsmakande. Kroppen och balansen var dock i sina bästa former och det är ju aldrig fel.

From bomber. Nice rich malt aroma, raisin, plum, brown sugar and a wee bit of alcohol. Dark coppery amber clear with thin beige head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation and alcoholic warming. Starts sweet and rich, double decoction, raisin, caramel, brown sugar. Lasting sweet after. Nice doppelbock with some barley wine quality.

Pours a bright, ruby color with a slim, tan head. Strong caramel and toffee notes. Very nice. Smooth taste with some smoked caramel and toffee notes. Dark fruit with some malty presence as well. Not overpowering, but very, very good.

Mycket smakrik, fin rödbrun färg. En aning söt. En öl som ska upplevas i måttliga mängder.
