At Obreins, Great citris aroma...hits you in the face. Hop aroma up front malt in the middle then big oily hops in the finish. Very well done for a 9.2%

daleharshman (1045) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 29, 2016
Bomber purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar 1.5 years ago ($5.99). POURS a nice deep amber / muddy brown hue with a good two fingers of off-white foam that soon reduces. AROMA of creamy nutty chocolate, toasted dark bread, caramel, and port wine-like sticky dark fruity notes. FLAVOR diverges somewhat from the nose with initial hoppy-fruity notes ("legacy" hops after 1.5 years), followed by more malt-centric notes of mild chocolate, honeyed bread, brown sugar, toffee/caramel, and some stewed dark fruits. Hides the alcohol reasonably well. (89, 1023)

bhensonb (14177) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bomber from the Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours copper with a yellowish foamy head. Aroma suggests a lot of hop and brown sugar. Med body at best. Flavor is brown sugar and hops that aren’t too bitter. Very smooth. Nice, but not really exciting. Fair amount of hop, but it takes a long time to show strong bitter.

marcus (9235) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange amber with a huge beige head that lowered itself pretty quickly, and a honey and malt aroma. There is a slightly astringent yet sweet mixed malt flavor with a dry moderately bitter finish.

tom10101 (5397) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle (22 oz) shared at tasting. Clear amber with a smal lwhite head leaving little lacing. Flavor is rather dull and raw with resinous hops, caramel, lots of alcohol for the abv, medium spiciness and toasted notes. Taste is sweet and boozy with a moderate piney bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Spicy and boozy finish. Malty but lacking malt depth. Boozy for no reason. Bitter without fun hoppy features. Raw, lack of refinement. Poorly executed.

Ventanas83 (34) - - JAN 9, 2016
Poured tap at source. Clear dark red. Like a garnet jewel. Aroma of toffe malts no roast. Some hops present but all about malty aroma. Super fresh malty toffe taste with the 9+ percent alcohol hidden. Finishes well with no sweetness, just malty joy.

Low69caprice (100) - Yucca valley, California, USA - SEP 11, 2015
22 oz bomber bottle, Statue of Liberty on bottle with pre-amble of constitution. How could I not rate this 100 th beer on sept 11. Pour dark garnet and super clear wonderful color with thick white head. Malts in aroma of biscuit caramel and toffee with a slight plum character. Flavor slightly sweet with noise of dark dried fruits and some sherry notes as well. Hops come in to balance out with some alcohol heat along with it.

Zymurgeist2 (1870) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 3, 2015
From bomber to tulip. Aroma of biscuit malt dominates. Alcohol is fully present on the aroma - a little solventy. Hop aroma provides wet grass and a pleasant mixtures of herbs and spices. Pours a clear orange-amber with tan head that leaves slight lacing down the glass. Taste is herbacious, mostly wild herbs in an overgrown grass meadow. Plenty of residual sweetness leads to a cloying, textured mouthfeel. Moderate low bitterness adds nice balance.
