stantheman (647) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
Bomber from Legacy Liquor in Vancouver. An almost black beer with a moderate tan head. Big malts on the tongue, but they are not heavily roasted. The overall impression is rather sweet and fruity. No bitterness detected. Finish is as expected; malty, sweet and fruity. Very smooth and mellow, I’m moved to say. Not a tasting note found often on these pages, it seems. Nice.

Bottle at home. Courtesy of ClubGonzo. Pours a cloudy deep brown to black colour with a medium, creamy, light brown head.

Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A smooth and well-balanced old ale. Nice roasted tones as well.
