25th September 2012
The ChrisO small midweek tasting. Thanks to Colin for bringing one of my wants along to the tasting. Clear dark red - amber beer. Small pale tan head. A smooth viscous palate that is none the less quite light. Smooth BA malts, vanilla, toasted coconut, sweet dark malts. Coffee and smooth bourbon. Really well joined up and sumptuous treat amongst all the vinegar beers. Bit squiffy when I had this - must try again, but I really enjoyed this one.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ma gonna die. Killed a Bad Bunny bomber. Now for the real deal. Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown black with a creamy/fizzy tan head. Aroma is dates, raisins, prunes and arguably treacle and turbinado sugar. Full bodied. More than. There’s a touch of heat, but considering 15% it’s not important. I think the main flavor components are treacle and dried plum. It’s hard to find malt in this. It’s arguably a sugar bomb, but I’m sure it’s all dark, good and fairly natural. So it finishes sweet, but there’s so much flavor that’s not objectionable. Woosh! Quite a complex thingy here.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at a ChrisO tasting, London. Pours dark brown with a light, frothy head. Big dark sugar and dark malt nose, some licorice. Stupidly sweet flavor, some tangy dark fruits, licorice, brown sugar, raisins. Big bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with ripe fruits, more raisins and brown sugar, light dirt, mild earthy bitterness. As a slow-sipping dessert beer, this one is delicious; subtle it is not.
