Bomber bottle. Deep brown pour with a thin off white head. Taste is grainy, toffee and toasted malt. Aroma is dusty, toffee malt with just a touch of candy sweetness coming through as it warms. I expected a little more, but overall decent.

Bomber poured into Sam Adams lager glass. SLAYER! What a bitchin name for a beer. Pours a hazy orange with a thick off-white head that sticks around for a nice long time. Leaves some rockin lacing. Aroma is herbal, citrus powder drink. Taste is lightly sweet with some bitterness coming up in the finish. Has a grassy and intensely nutty character. Very smooth; the alcohol is well-hidden. Has medium carbonation and body with a creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer.

Poured into a pint glass. Dark cola brown color with a moderate cream colored head that fades into just a thin layer of foam. Aroma is roasted coffee with chocolate and malty notes. This beer smells delicious! Flavor is bitter black coffee. I’m sure there is more going on here, but I’m somewhat overwhelmed by the bitter flavor and can’t seem to pick out anything else. Mouthfeel is a little on the fizzy side. Overall this just wasn’t quite my style. It smelled great but the flavor didn’t live up to the same standard. The bitterness just seemed to overwhelm and block out any other flavors. Other reviews seem more favorable, so I may try this again in the future and hope for a better outcome...

Sampled on 12/24/2010. This American Strong Ale/Altbier pours a medium brown color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is malty, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied American Strong Ale. Malts are caramel, fruity, sweet and a touch bready. The hops are earthy and herbal. Nice carbonation. There is a touch of some holiday spices perhaps. A nice Winter Warmer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

greenhorn1 (822) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 7, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with ruby highlights. Frothy head, lots of lacing. Aroma is sweet. Flavor is mainly dark malts, but the slight bitterness rounds off this beer nicely. Alcohol is well hidden and a very easy, maybe to easy, to drink. Excellent beer.

brenn79 (1580) - Idaho, USA - JAN 2, 2011
22 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown with red highlights with an off white head and exceptional lacework, aroma is caramel malts. The flavor is toasted malts with a nutty flavor and a somewhat bitter aftertaste. This beer is very smooth, but not overbearing, I could probably drink it all night.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle. Poured a red-brown with a tan head that settled to a ring. Light aromas of fruit and malt. The flavor found dark fruits, malt, and light spices. Light to medium body.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. No freshness info. This bottle has been in my fridge for a month or so and I am just now getting to it. Pours a lovely light brown color with an inch of lumpy foam. Good lacing. Sweet malt on the nose with slight roasted notes and an herbal bitter quality. Hints of dark chocolate. Fairly full bodied with a nice, round mouthfeel. Good carbonation. Good drinkability for 7.2abv. The nutty taste of the roasted malt prevails all the way through to the finish. The bitterness that comes from the hops doesn’t really complement the rest of the flavor profile. I don’t think the style needs this much hop bitterness. They stayed true to the style but I feel like they upped the hops along with the alcohol and the result is too bitter. Not bad though. Something different but nothing great.

Rusty in color, sleighr had a flat taste; mellow body flavor. Though it was okay, I expected a lot more from this winter beer.
