4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bomber from 2010. The aroma on this changed significantly as it warmed up. When relatively cold (55 F), it had an aroma of cream and wood with roasted chocolate grain in the background. As it warmed, the alcohol became more present and the roasted grain character became more pronounced. Initially had a puffy tan head that settled fairly quickly to a very light lacing on top of the crystal clear ruby colored body (the most "ruby" colored beer I think Iíve ever seen!). The initial taste is cream and sweet milk chocolate with a little bit of dark/bittersweet chocolate in the back. Thereís some brown sugar and marshmallow in there too followed by a light raisin/prune taste. After the initial chocolate milkshake effect, thereís a light dry roasted bitterness that seems to be from wood, hops and alcohol all at the same time. Finishes with the same dichotomy of cream and dry bitterness with a lasting sweet chocolate aftertaste. This struck me more as a heavy version of a milk stout more than a Baltic porter, but in the end itís just plain delicious!

2/10/11 bomber from dakine.
clear. pale porter color with a reddish-orange tint.
mild roasty aroma followed by notes of chocolate, vinous/grapey fruit, wood and slight smoke.
the flavor is the same along with a coffee character which lingers in the after taste.
it is rather thin bodied... but that adds to the drinkability. 7.5/3/7.5/3/15

Bottle at Jan & Charlottes tasting, Ulfborg, Denmark 09.04.11 cheers Jan & Charlotte This is aged in port wine barrels apparently, however itís quite subtle as I didnít really pick this up too much especially not on the nose which yes showed some but not much. Pours dark brown with a tan head, as Craig mentioned this looks a little thin. Some bonfire toffee, warmth from the alcohol, chewy sweet. Not fantastic but a good label. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

Bomber from stevefinny on BA - thanks! Karl Strauss has been crushing the seasonals, and this oneís another fine brew from them. Thick, gleaming dark brown pour with moderate carbonation. Nose has plenty of the yummy Baltic quality one would expect, but also has plum jam, Italian roast, and the barrel. Mouthfeel is thick and silky, a trace of heat on the finish. Figs, currants, and cocoa come together with a very unassuming barrel that lends part vinous and part tannins to the beer. I actually found myself wanting more of the vinous barrel character, so kudos to the brewer for being understated!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served from a 22 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a nice brown black with a medium sized foamy pale brown head. The aromas are chalky medium roast malts, and some light fruit additions. The flavors are medium roast malts, raw oak staves, raisins, the roast level builds, more dried dark fruits come in to play as well. The mouth is medium bodied and cola carbonated which gives it any artificially filling full mouth. Comes and goes but overall pretty decent.
