3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
