Sample pour of deep dark murky black with healthy khaki head. Nose is boozy, sweet and dark malt. Flavor is boozy also with healthy sweetness and some sweet fruits. Maybe raspberries... Little too sweet for me.. Lighter medium body with little to no lacing.

A blend of 6 different Hebrew beers, 73% aged in rye whiskey barrels, 27% in bourbon. The complexities, to an extent, got lost in the shuffle. I was expecting the barreling to really stand out, but the beer was far more tart and sour than i expected. not in a bad way, just unexpected. it seemed to be going for a Firestone Walker Anniversary type of blend, and ended up with something, well...funky. Dug the sour cherry aroma and underlying flavor. Lots of dark fruit and roast, a little of the barrels does come thorugh. Good brew, just not as great as I’d hoped."

Bottle from South Bay Liquor: Appeared a dark opaque brown color and formed almost no formation of head except for a tiny layer of fizz. Aroma is strong smell of wood barrel and a faint background of sweet malt. The flavor is funkier than a 1970’s blaxploitation soundtrack, and delivers an intense sugary sweet taste of caramelized malt, molasses syrup, brown sugar, raisin, plum and dark chocolate. Interesting recipe of how 6 different styles of beers came together and then met the wood barrels, but somehow I wasn’t that impressed.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours reddish with tan head. Taste lightly tart, sweet, fruity, boozy. I thought this was good, reminded me of a sour. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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
