Take a little gnome home this winter! However, don’t put him in the front yard. The neighbors might steal him & he’ll definitely lose his cool! He’s a malty, hoppy brown ale of pure winter deliciousness. Enjoy and Happy Holidays! ABV: 6.8% / IBUs: 65 / OG: 15.5° Plato

Bottle. Pours a ruddy brown, with a respectable top of sturdy foam. The aroma is unusual and I can’t quite pin it ... almost cough medicine-like, but not off-putting. This drinks with a fruity flourish, like a sweet cherry bake. There’s also a nice little bitter edge that tops this off quite nicely. (#6137, 2/21/2016)

Kind of a roasty nutty beer with aearthy almost herbal hop character. Pours auburn in color,thinn bubbly ring or foam with some decent lace. Flavor is roasty, toasty, nutty and bitter. Herbal peppery bitterness with a little dank. Definitely strikes me as a hoppy brown ale. Smooth with lingering bitter.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee, caramel and maybe a little bit of spices. The flavor is very similar and is very malty. I get a lot of chocolate and toffee notes, as well as some spices and some grass notes. Fairly sweet overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22oz bottle pours out a brownish amber topped with a sand head. Nose is nutty wood notes spice roast malts and some earthy hops. Taste is more of the wood earthy notes a spice and plenty of the malty sweetness.

22 oz. bomber purchased at BevMo. It pours a dark red color with a nice creamy off white head. The aroma is pretty well balanced with toast, toffee and light fruit salad with some hints of floral, herbal hops. The flavor is more hoppy than the aroma with some strong earthy, floral bitterness, sweet toffee, caramel, toast, fruit and hints of cocoa. It kind of tastes like a cross between an English Strong Ale and a Winter Warmer/Old Ale. Pretty tasty stuff.

22oz Bomber – Beer Mongers – Portland, OR
Brown in color, clear with a thin head. Strong caramel with hops floral and fruitiness aroma. Roasty malt with a bitter flavor in the taste and finish. I get a balanced flavor the lack of malt forward takes from this beer. Finishes dry with a light bitterness. Nice drinking beer.

I think sebletitje shared this one. Pours hazy brown with an off-white head. Nose is malt, citrus hops, herbs, and a slight floral quality. Flavor is similar with herbs and malt. Pretty good.

This was a long distance shared beer tasting with Strykzone via Facebook chat. This poured pours reddish brown with a tan head and good lacing. The nose is fairly mild and the aroma a lightly roasted caramel malt presence with some hints of chocolate, coffee, ripe fruit and pine. Fairly complex. The mouthfeel is just a bit bolder than medium and the mouthfeel is somewhat sticky. The flavor, like the nose, is not overwhelming, and shows lots of malts with some subtle hops of citrus an pine, The finish goes on and on, and is bitter but not overly so. Overall a very drinkable brew that tastes just as good at the end as it did at the beginning..
