Beaver (1547) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2016
22 oz bottle. Pours ruby amber brown with a medium creamy light tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is perfumey roasted caramel malts and vanilla with a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet nutty perfumey caramel malts with with some vanilla and dark fruit and a green slightly harsh bitter finish that’s a little plasticky. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, an OK winter warmer.

mcberko (11200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark copper with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and bready caramel malt. Flavour is similar, with bready malt and a little toasted nuts. Pretty dull and lifeless. But it’s okay.

JohnGalt1 (1215) - , Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle picked up at the COOP.. Poured into my little Cigar City goblet.. Clear deep amber with a nice pillowy khaki head. piney hops with plenty of dark toasty malt and hints of cocoa.. Nuttiness with the malt as it warms up a bit, bigger bitterness and the pine hops are on the palate, but not quite as much as I want.. Still no problems... Good hops and malt balance... Expected PNW take on a winter beer... If I was drinking this blind, I would guess an Amber Ale with a nice sharpness to the overall package.

zoucrew102 (1088) - - JAN 17, 2015
Bomber. Light caramel and toffee malt aroma with notes of piney hops. Pours Amber colored with half a finger of tan head with good retention and no lacing. Starts with light caramel and toffee sweetness, but not a lot. Finishes dry with with a good piney hop bite at the end that lingers on the palate. Not bad.

Bomber into a pint glass. Pours brown, with a small tan head that quickly fades. Nose is malt and hops. Taste is malty nuttiness with a strong hop component on the finish. Over hopped and not well balanced. Would not buy again.
