22 Dec 2011, bottle. light amber, clear, occasional bubbles, frothy head. malty aroma with some very faint spices that i couldn’t identify. med body and moderately fizzy. i don’t know why they call it a malt beverage instead of beer. up front there is a resiny hop, sugary red fruit malt, and maybe some spices. alcohol is pretty prominent but not dominant. pretty nice. a bit bitter finish. i like this.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber: pours red-amber with medium off-white head and low carb. Aroma is slightly vegetal with some cinnamon and caramel. Flavor is disjointed with cinnamon and nutmeg bittering the tongue, while vegetal hops run around in the background together with a little caramel malt. Palate is mild sweet with a lingering bitterness that takes over. Maybe this beer would do better with a little time but not my favorite now.

On tap at the brewery. Deep copper color with no real head. Aroma has a variety of spices and is reminiscent of gingerbread. Flavor matches the aroma well with some bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall a nice winter beer.
