Bomber, packaged 03/06/2012. The pour yields a clear but extremely dark mahogany brown body with deep cherrywood tones. A short, compact head of dark khaki foam quickly settles to a thin outer ring, leaving behind a soapy wash that rejoins the body. The nose is massively sweet, showing loads and loads of stewed raisins, figs, and dates. There are some more acidic plummy tones, as well as a hint of pomegranate. Molasses and burnt caramel pile on more sugar, as alcoholic whiskey notes permeate this monster. Flavors are just as heavy on the sugars, dripping with sticky-sweet dark fruits, mainly fig and raisin. The barrel imparts an astringent, woody, boozy intensity. There’s a tart, fruity zing in the background. It’s really quite a messy brew. The palate is sticky, sugary, cloying,and hot...pretty much everything I loathe these days. Woof. I wish I could put these calories back in the bottle.

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.
