Bomber, cellared for approximately 1.5 years. Dark fruit aroma with a bit of sourness and a hint of bourbon. Pours dark brown with a ruby hue and a thin light brown head. Sweet dark fruit flavors with a rich body and coating mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with the bourbon coming through as beer lingers on your palate. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. The color is a dark copper color. The aroma has some nice sour notes to it. However the taste is anything but sour, more of a subtle booze. A decent brew for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque black - brown beer, good tan head. Smooth palate, a little soft. Smooth bourbon with no real heat or spice, quite fruity and well barrel rounded. A little rye tang in there. Smooth barrel wood and vanilla. Malt cream and a whisper of caramel. It’s all very fresh and fruity and vibrant which makes is very easy drinking indeed. A joy!

wedgie9 (1792) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Tasted on draft at the 2012 East Nashville Beer Festival. Pours deep, dark mahogany with an average tab head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is sweet caramel, raisin, date, molasses, vanilla, cinnamon, and oak. The flavor is just as complex with all of the same notes from the nose, with some additional roasted bitterness. The body is full with just lighter than average carbonation and a long, very malty and dark fruit finish.

Pours black with a ruby hue when held to the light. Finger length head that dissipates somewhat quickly and leaves a ring of lacing. Nice carbonation which is kind of surprising. Smells of lots of dark fruits like raisin, plums, and figs. Also get some chocolate, oak, tiny bit of whiskey, more bourbon, slight funkiness to it. Not as boozy as I thought, but still some alcohol presence on the nose. Taste is pretty complex. Starts with sweet raisins and chocolate along with some bourbon. Almost get a salty, funky taste. Then the malt comes in and provides more sweetness, as well as breadiness, some nuttiness, oak, still more bourbon. Then the finish is more breadiness and a toast-like quality, tons of dark fruit like more raisins and plums, funkiness, molasses, carmel, definitely some heat from the whiskey. The whiskey takes the place of the bourbon on the finish. Not as much of a mess as I thought it would be, as the flavors meld nicely on the finish as it warms up; however, it is quite cloying. Pretty full body with a creamy and sticky mouthfeel. Although this is a year old, some age could do this beer some good. Not bad.
