23rd April 2016
Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and has reasonable fine carbonation. Odd dark malts, rich and with a trace of cream but also carrying a distinctly tea like tang. Light floralness and a touch of dark fruits. Finishes dry and spicy. Mmm. Okay.

3/29/16. Bomber bought 11/2014. Min head and carbonation. Light lacing. Very subtle nose. Aging has played down the fruit and amped the dark roasty notes. Not as nice a mouthfeel as I would have expected for 10%. A bit one dimensional
