A Portland Classic! This strong ale has a deep mahogany color and is crafted with seven different specialty malts. A touch of smoked malt gives it a complex aroma and incredible flavor. LSD is also generously hopped with six hop varieties to help create an awesome beer.

Deep rich brown body with an off white head. Aroma is very light. Smokey taste leading into a liquorice taste and hitting with a strong chocolate aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle poured. Pours cola like, dark brown with a fizzy off white head. Hop forward aroma. Flavor is just the opposite with a heavy malt, slight spice, light smoke, and caramel. A lot of different flavors going on here. Hops come back late. Overall this is an interesting beer to me. Little surprised to see the strong ale tag on a beer under 7%, but I don’t make the rules, nor do I usually understand them. No matter what it is, I enjoyed this beer.

Bomber from Capital Market. Super deep ruby in color. Nose is fairly roasty with a lot of dark fruit notes. More roasty dark fruits up front. Going into a nice bit of roasty coffee. Mild hoppiness. Pretty good strong ale.

Bomber at Imazato. Almost black, cloudy, low head, lacy. Medium smoke in the nose, more chocolate, caramel. Nice, rich, chewy malt nose. Good chocolate flavors, medium smoke goes well with it, nicely rich and chewy. Dig it. A bit light in body, but it works.

DSG (12204) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/26/15] Draught at Fifth Quadrant in Portland. Deep reddish amber color. Aroma of malt, caramel, nice smokiness and a bit of toast. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel, pleasant smokiness, a toasty touch and a bitterish finish with some hops. Medium-bodied. Good.

Lompoc Special Draft A dark molasses pour in a mason jar. The aroma is citrusy grapefruit hops & malty caramel - somewhat American Barleywine like. Very pithy grapefruit flavor with light fudge malt character. Fairly light bodied but overall it’s decent. This was such a bizarre beer that was hard to categorize, finally I just called it an Imperial Brown Ale. good but disjointed.

"Moderately dark. Sweet nose of malt, smoke and a bitter flavor to add quite a bit of complexity. Nicely done, on draft as well as the nitro version. One of the better brews..."

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is toasty with a bit of caramel in there, and some slight spice elements popping through. Taste is slightly sweet, yet has some roasting to it. Surprisingly pleasant for me.

Dark brown pour some tan head. Aroma of soy, malt syrup, coffee. Tastes of smoke, hay, caramel, herbal hops. creamy palate. Solid tasty and cheap but not incredible.
