Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton. Opaque dark brown beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is soft and airy and a little dry. Soft dark malts, trace of coffee. Light piney hops, little spice. Light finish. Decent.

Pretty dark brown with a big rocky, smells floral, citrusy, a little roasty, really rich toasty dark malts, aggressive hop bitterness, full body. A very assertive character, big example, I really like it.

bhensonb (10983) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours black with a 2 finger creamy beige head. Aroma of dark roast malt and chocolate and hops (type uncertain). About full bodied. Flavor is chocolate, smooth burnt malt, and arguably citrus/resin hop. The hop burns a bit - so it’s strong - but the malt tends to confuse the hop flavors. Finishes smooth, darkly chocolate, and hoppily bitter. Slight burn in the mouth!

Leighton (10894) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - this one I got at that little general store not too far from Hill Farmstead. Pours black-brown with a tight, creamy beige head. The nose holds cakey dark bread, so,e juicy pine, nips of orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with dry, toasty dark bread, pine, rindy citrus, earth, cocoa. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with lots of chalky baking cocoa, supple roast, burnt toast, dry burnt pine. Not bad.
