3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This pours with a very big head that is beige. It falls slowly. The beer is hazy amber and it seems to take forever before I can get a sniff. It smells kind of swampy and earthy. That is tasted with some biscuit and a hint of spice. It does have an Irish effect with those earthy malts. A little spice gives this beer some life and mild bitterness but I cannot tell what flavor they bring. Noble? There are nuts that are tasted and that took a while to figure out. Hazelnuts, maybe? Not a great beer.

This beer is very swill able but is not lacking in taste in the least. The roasted barley really comes through in the aroma and finish of this delectable brew!
