Very nice dark ale -- the fact that itís gluten free is besides the point. Solid malt bill. Nicely carbonated.

Pretty amazing roasted malt aroma. The body is a tad thin but the flavour is bang-on robust and with a mild red wine venous mod-palate. Iím not sure if the lentils are making a stand but all in all pretty solid.
Though I must say Iím surprised to see a beer without a listed ABV on its label available in Canada??

Bottle fom Cool Wine 010515. More amber than dark although there are some dark chocolate and raisin flavours. Little thin in the mouth but overall not too bad.

This beer didn't taste like a non-gluten free beer, but about beer club brought mixed responses.

Amber-brown, quite light, lots of roasted chestnuts on the nose, the same + carob on the palate. The palate is more complex than the nose hints at.

650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that dissipates quite quickly leaving some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite pleasant with some roasted almost whisky notes with some underlying chocolate. Taste is a light chocolate sweetness with some roasted and nutty bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Quite possible this is the best gluten-free brew I have tried to date. Especially recommended for those out there who have GF needs, but also tasty enough for any beer lover.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This beer pours dark opaque brown. It has lighter hues in it, too. A one finger tan head falls in a timely manner. A bold aroma of chocolate and roasted notes. Espresso is probably very close. The flavor is the same but is somewhat muted. There is a nice hop bill here that is quite bitter. The hops also bring some fruit. 2/3 of the way through my tongue went numb about an inch from the tip. I blame the hops. An interesting effect. They also bring a brightness that is appealing. The malts fell short of the aroma but the hops kicked in and brought this beer back up. Nuts in the finish. A strong beer.

smell is of nuts, brown sugar, and some malt.
taste is a bit watery, cocoa, peanut butter, and a little funkiness. ends sour and somewhat flat.
