Bomber from Palm Springs. Pours very dark in color. Looks quite slick and oily. Dark fruity nose. Some fig. Reminds be of a dubbel. Dark and roasty up front. Some roasted coffee along with some sugary sweetness. Full bodied and full flavored. Alcohol is certainly there. Would be a lot better if the alcohol was toned down a little.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, raisin, plum, light vanilla, roast, and a touch of espresso. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one inch tan head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is some minimal lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy chocolate, residual sugar, and light raisin. The finish has light-moderate roasted coffee, plum, and light alcohol (not so much burn...but definite flavor). It’s full bodied with mild carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I’m basing this rating on a small sample. It’s pretty good at first, but it really wore on me as I tried to drink my half of a bottle. As I stated in my 15th Anniversary rating, it’s really time to put the Hebrew anniversary beers in smaller format bottles.

Very sweet aroma, banana, chocolate, vanilla. Very dark brown-black, tan head, dissolves fairly quickly. Syrupy body, coffee, toffee, but still sweet caramel too. Boozy. They were going for a big, intense beer and they got it. Not my favorite thing however.

Very very high gravity. Super strong. Pours like molasses. Very malty finish and semi sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled at Scardello tasting. Wow, that’s big but I realize it was a little bit of a gimmick to play on 16. Lot’s of hops, lots of dark malt and lots of dark fruit. Pretty boozey. I have no idea what you would do with a bomber of this other than share it amongst a dozen people. Fine though.

Bomber---> snifter. Pours a dark amber black with a thick light brown head that takes quite some time to shrink with pretty good lacing. Aroma is sweet fig, heavy alcohol, light smoke, and molasses. So much going on with the taste- dark chocolate, coffee, raisins, black pepper, mild hop bitter, oak, bourbon, vanilla, and booze burn. Palate is very thick- almost chewy (which is a good thing to me) with very little carbonation. This drinks more like an impy stout mixed with a roided up barleywine.

jhamp9 (1347) - Corinth, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Oily black pour with a thin khaki head that fades to nothing. Aroma is molasses, sticky dates, wood, and chocolate. Taste is dark fruits, syrup, wood, vanilla, and some coffee. Alcohol is nearly completely hidden except for the warmth. Syrupy texture with very little carbonation.

Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Beer Notes: Aroma: Molasses and coffee. Perhaps a bit of toffee, maple syrup, and raisin. 3/5 Appearance: Fizzy, fair, flat head. 3/5 Taste: Medium body. Creamy and alcholic texture (very hot), fizzy carbonation with a bitter aftertaste. Overall: Not bad, need to tone down the alcohol.

nearbeer (4297) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2012
On tap. Opaque chocolate with a lasting disc of cream. Nose is molasses, citrus, raisin and dark cherry. Flavors of prune, molasses, dark chocolate, peppery citrus, woody hops, cherry brandy, light char and smoke. ABV is noted, but not like you would think in a 16% brew. Heavy body has light-medium carbonation and is slightly sticky, but a pretty easy drinker compared to others of the same vitality.
