"2012 basically the same beer. Probably the cheapest good bomber at 2.99 I’ve ever had. Strong roasted malt and chocolate nose, with some coffee, caramel & hops in the flavor as well. Nicely balanced. Good for a "strong ale" great as a brown."

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer is dark mahogany with crimson highlights. Small, soapy tan head. The aroma brings raisins, cookies, sweet malt, dark fruits. Sweet and malty. Dark malts with prominent fruit, finishing with alcohol sweetness. Ripe plums, a hint of cinnamon. A bit much. Lacking elegance and a refined character that would make a nearly 10% abv strong ale appealing after more than a few ounces. Eh...

22 oz bottle 2012 vintage. Pours a slightly hazy amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweeter caramel malts, dark fruits, figs, toasted malts, mild nutty character, some earthy and leafy hoppiness. Solid, especially for the price.

Bomber from Trader Joe’s in Tallahassee. Dark brown pour with light brown head. Aroma of dark fruit and malt, brown sugar. Tastes are caramel, coffee, nuts, cocoa. Little tinny metallic vibe. Dark fruit, little earthy. Not bad.

Sweet and musty. Seems like the love child of a dubbel and a brown ale. Burnt with some dark fruit.

Not too bad considering. It is definitely a bit of a brown ale with some roasty notes, and hops.
