Bottle. The pour was a murky dark brown almost black with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that reduced to a thick film with a medium collar and had excellent sheeting of lacing. The aroma was of a roasted chocolate malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of coffee, chocolate, toffee, dark fruit (Raisons and plums), bourbon cask and a touch of vanilla. The taste was rather malty and extremely sweet with hints of chocolate and toffee from the onset with the finish having notes of coffee, a big dark fruit sweetness and a lightly noticeable bourbon alcohol presence at the end. The flavor remained on the taste buds for a nice long while with a sweet fruity espresso taste left to linger. Mouthfeel was a few shades past medium in body and oily in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a very well put together brew, although I found it to be just a tad to much on the sweet side...

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

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!
