It was...delicious. Malty, very pleasing. I only had the one bottle and I felt very sad when it was empty.

Reddish brown color with a small, creamy head. Aroma is toffee malt with a smoky bitterness in the background. Flavor is very creamy, smoky malt with a hint of dark fruit sweetness and chocolate. Full bodied and creamy palate with a soft carbonation and a long, malty finish. Really starting to like this ’My Turn’ series.

Bomber. Poured crystal-clear, garnety-amber with a nice cap of beige head.. great color. The aroma picked up sweet and toasty redder fruits, caramel, and a bit of smoked peat topped by some earthy notes and just a kiss of black pepper.. fresh, well-balanced, and really well done. The flavor found a touch of honey and molasses at the core to go along with smoked peat and redder fruit.. just enough fresh, dry bitterness on the edges.. finished with more fruit, smoked peat, and peppery alcohol warmth. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. great feel and flow, especially for the style.. very good brew.

Bonus beer from Atom. It pours clear copper with a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up molasses, prunes and a bit of earthy date fruitinesss. The smooth taste comes across similar to the nose with a mix of molasses covered prunes and earthy dates as well as some malty sweetness. This is smooth tasty stuff.

On tap at Tyranena as a guest tap, pours brown with a reddish hue in the light and a thin diminishing head, aroma has a good amount of earthy notes mixed in with a touch of smoke, the flavor has a sweet front end a finish of earthy notes and peat, not bad.

22 oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a super super dark brown body with an average to smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma is all malts, earthy, peat, light chocolate, brown bread. Fuller bodied with average carbonation, big mouthfeel that is chewy, no heat. Flavor of very slight alcohol, peat, earth, nutt shells, dark fruits and figs. Solid beer.

Lakefront is 2 for 2 in it’s My Turn Series. Brad pours to a near unnatural head that makes for very nice lacing above a dark copper color. Maybe just a bit of floral hoppiness in the aroma, but this real is all about the malts in both the aroma and taste, which is nicely sweet. The pleasant sweetness continues through the finish. I didn’t get any of the advertised smokiness in my first bomber. Maybe I’ll have to try another....

Orlando, Fl - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Dark copper pour, light off white head. Aroma of bubble gum, a hint of smoke, some Christmas spices. Flavor is full bodied and belly warming. Smoky undertones permeate throughout, some caramel and toffee sweetness, some horehound candy, a hint of Christmas spices. Thick and sticky mouthfeel. Good companion to a cold night at the last grasp of winter.
