Bomber JoeMcPhee brought over to my place to share. Pours black with a tan head. Nose is sweet with bitter coffee and strange notes. Taste is sweet and rich and really nice, lots of flavor big and bold. The nose had some qualities that didn’t appeal to me, but the taste is big with lots of sweetness and slight vinous qualities and rich thick character. Nice.

From bottle. Pour dark brown. Aroma has light hops and sweet malt. Flavor is sweet caramel, coffee and alcohol. Surprisingly good. Should age for a while.

I enjoyed this immense brown ale which I bought at Bellport’s tasting with the Schmaltz Brewing Company yesterday. The thick brown ale could probably use a year in dark cellar, but it was alive with porter’s qualities of coffee and chocolate for me.

Aroma is sweat and I’m getting a little smoke. Pour is thick and dark brown. Flavor is hot and sweat with a roasted malt presence. Mouthfull is hot and thick.

Pour is a thick dark brown to almost black. Aroma has plenty of sweet malt with some hops resin and alcohol. Flavor is some caramel malt with again a hugh dose of alcohol. Finish is thick and extrememly hot. Did this really need to be 12%? To hot and boozy to drink to much of this. What are they going to do when they reach 20 years, 20%?
