3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at Morrison’s, 10/15/14
Aroma: The nose is sweet malt/caramel, earthy hops, and a drop of rubbing alcohol
Appearance: This beer pours a dark orange color, murky, with a beige head and plenty of lacing
Flavor: The taste mid-sweet, and medium-heavy bitter, with some boozy flavors as well
Palate: This brew is fairly full bodied, a little sticky, with some dryness, and a pretty hot finish
This is an okay, but somewhat flawed example of the style. Drinkable, but nothing special. It’s tough, but this is definitely not up to the standards of a style as stacked as this one.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle:   Fiery amber, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Really oxidized and dank, sweaty, basement, musty, oh lordy.... This smells like a 15 year old Belgian ale.   Tastes like butterscotch and old bacon.   This is an odd duck, real odd duck.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes a little better, but still, lingering butterscotch, stale bacon, and this overwhelming musty basement.   Ugh...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clearly not fresh but no bottling date was listed. Pours a murky orange amber with dense tannish orange head and nice lace. Nose of caramel, sugar, light floral and citrus notes. Mostly malt, slightly hot but not bad for 10.5%, I would like to try fresh because this clearly was old.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from Half Time beverage ok aroma, sweet. Tad oxidized. Kind of fruity.Figgy. brownish orange color, nice head, spotty lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel, bitter finish. Certainly past its best, though not totally ruined, just that oxidized thing going on. Otherwise fairly indistinguishable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Half Time. Pours hazy ruddy copper with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Full bodied - almost. Heat is present. There’s a heavy sweetness. There’s a lot of hop. There’s a flavor aspect that’s not metallic exactly, but makes me think of that. Also hints of earth. There’s a lot of fruity hop. There’s a lot of a lot of things. With time the heat seems fairly low key. I’d like to figure out that different flavor, but that’s my only problem with this beer. Update: basil and oregano come to mind for that flavor.
