Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a transparent copperish brown with beige lacing. Smells solid too; dark fruit and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Better than I expected.

Pours a clear ruby amber with a small off white head with good lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, some breadiness and spices like cinnamon and clove. Taste has dark fruits with the same breadiness and a lightly roasted malt flavor. Cinnamon, clove and brown sugar on the finish. Mouthfeel is full and medium/full bodied with medium carbonation. Tastes as billed, a malty bock with Belgian spiciness and dark fruit flavors. Not overly complex but flavors meld well.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance of this beer is a dark and clear mahogany color with an off-white head that fades from a medium size to nothing quite rapidly. The aroma of this beer smells strongly of booze with an undercurrent of sour fruit; furthermore, the taste is mildly sweet, mildly sour, and a touch umami, and the palate combines a thin texture, soft carbonation, long finish, and a medium body.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear dark ruddy amber with a frothy beige head. The aroma of dark fruits is strong. Some dark malt aroma too. Med + body. Flavor is date/fig with some chocolate, and perhaps a bit of anise. The malt is malty. There’s a lot of flavor in this, and tho it’s finishing sweet, there are so many other flavors that there’s a bitter component. The flavors are not common, but they are tasty.
