Bomber from Half Time. These guys are good at specials and seasonals. Pours a dark ruddy amber brown with a good creamy beige head. The aroma is heavy hop. Not the harsh cat pee type. More floral and fruit. Med + body. Til the carb leaves. The flavor is heavy malt more than balanced by a lot of earthy, floral, maybe herbal, hop. I’m not getting a trace of heat, which is somewhat amazing. Just excellent ale.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2010
A dark reddish brown ale with a thin light moka head. A superb fruity hops and malts aroma, resinous and pinhey, just right. In mouth, intense malts, oily mouthfeel, pungeant, with good grassy hops, well sustained by the malts, treacle, licorice notes, all smooth and warming. On cask at the People’s Real Ale Fest, Clarke’s Ale House, April 30 2010.

hopscotch (8883) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottle… Clear Longhorn-orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The malty bouquet furnishes nuts, caramel and toasted barley. Medium to full-bodied with snappy carbonation. The flavor is not quite as malty as the aroma; more bitter and boozy – grapefruit rind and pith stand out. Lengthy, rindy, bitter finish.

Sammy (8404) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2010 It was quite hoppy, very enjoyable and dangerously drinkable. Copper body, a little hoppy aroma. A tad above average mouthfeel. Not very complex, but tasty stuff.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bomber shared by MaltDawg at the Baltimore Late Late Summer Gathering, 9/14/13. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of toffee, spicy herbal hops, mild dark fruits. The taste is toffee malts, earthy, resin hops. Caramelized sugar and even a mild bit of chocolate. Medium-full bodied, lingering bitterness.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
2012-01-06. Very dark amber body, small beige head. 3+ Flavour is interesting, fairly bitter but the sweet malty core makes it fairly sweet, caramel and sugary notes, fruity accents. 7+ Modest aroma, sweet malt, caramel, mild hops. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate. 3+ Modest alcohol throughout makes itself known. Nice, less hoppy than I had hoped, I think I prefer the regular Wailing wench, but this was enjoyable. Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
January 6, 2012 - with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jerc & mabel. Bomber c/o blankboy. "Those are LARGE boobies!!" Deep ruby-brown with an average frothy tan head (4-). A bit like Stone Double bastard - strong alcohol, very grainy, would be sweet but it’s also quite resiny. Taste is ... big: leafy dry barleywine, boozy acidic. Thick, syrupy, astringent, decent carbonation, somewhat long boozy/bitter finish, although is starts out more sweet than bitter. Maybe some maple syrup in there.

Bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Jan. 6. Pours a deep amber with a small semi-lasting off-white head. Aroma is equally malty and hoppy, sweet and fruity. Sweet, malty flavour followed by hops, some fruit, a hint of alcohol and a decent bitter finish. Medium bodied. Really enjoyable.
