3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer releases from the 22 ounce bottle reddish amber with a large creamy head that slowly fades leaving the lace a firm sheet upon the glass. Nose is rich in sweet malt, hops and fruit also present in the aroma. Smells and tastes like a cross between a barley wine and a big schotch ale with the alcohol just a little untamed. The fruitiness come through slightly, moderating the taste. A nice experiment but the taste unexpected and a little jarring. Finish is more fruity than hoppy. Texture is mediu, carbonation is low. An interesting attempt. I think it needs a little tweaking, but I enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from Jungle Jim’s-Eastgate. Pours a somewhat cloudy tea color with a small ring for a head. Notes of caramel, pomegranate, tea, some woody and leafy earthiness, and a little bit of candied nuts. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, moderately boozy mouthfeel. Better than ratings indicate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy amber with a finger thick tan head. Smell is not strong but it does smell like pomegranate. Taste is almost wine-like fruity and slightly hoppy with a lasting sour/bitterness. Mouthfeel is good with light carbonation. This is a good example of what a fruit beer can be not too sweet or sour.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber pours a hazy golden copper with very faint ring of clearish white head. Very sweet and a little medicinal. Definitely better as an additive in their blended rejuvenations, but not as a stand alone offering. a little tart and a little bitter. meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark red-amber with a rocky, cream head with massive amounts of lace. Nose is intensely fruity with woody and herbal overtones. Not as sweet as I was expecting on the tongue, but there’s definite pomegranate, nutmeg, wood, herbal/hops bitterness, and vanilla. There’s a lot going on in this beer, and the finish just keeps opening up wider. Great complexity, and definitely worth a long look. I like it a lot.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Smells like pomegranite but taste is more like a lager. Pretty good, but nothing too spectacular.
