All the bubblegum sweetness and minty freshness of a candy cane is packed the in the aroma. Translucent brown color, with a fleeting tan head. Sweetness dominates the flavor throughout, supplemented by bitterness in the middle, but the flavor isnít overwhelming. Medium body and carbonation. A pleasant, but weak and very sweet, winter beer.

Draft at mellow mushroom Asheville. Smells like a forest. Fantastic! Big notes of wood and pine on the tongue. Clean finish. Very nice.

Clear red brown in color with off white lacing. Candied fruit aroma with distinct coffee bean on the palate. A fun expression of a Christmas beer. Maybe a little hyped though.

expecting some sort of barley wine. Had this on tap at Willards Tap House in largo fla. Fairly clear, Nice clean attractive aroma. Initial flavor are spicey or sumthin and comes across rather creamy on the co2. Bitter alky builds thru the session. Medicinal finish.

probably one of the better winter brews ive had. amber hued, with a sticky head. flavors of light brown sugars, a bit of a gingery bite, with a bright clean finish. easily sessionable.

Bomber, itís got the southern tier Creme burlee flavor. Luckily itís just a significant flavor not utter dominance. Dry finish, thin body. Lame brew

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby brown pour with a nice khaki head. Light raspberry aroma. No hop aroma (or much else really ... perhaps too cold). Flavor of vanilla and a slight nutty taste (reminiscent of cola). Moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied (slight viscocity) with medium/low carbonation. A nice subdued spice winter ale.
