Bomber from beachbum25. Pours very dark ruddy copper with a beige smear. Aroma is sort of brown sugar mixed with dark red berry. Full bodied. Flavor is very red berry, then it develops treacle, gets a little oak astringency, but it’s really sugar/treacle/red berry. Finishes on the sweet side, but very, very tasty. Thanks Jim!
