3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours sort of dark ruby with a 3 finger foamy tan head. Smell of sweet brown roast malt with a hint of chocolate. Medium body with strongly foamy carbonation. Flavor is smooth roast brown with a lot of chocolate notes. It’s bitter. And it seems to be hop bitter. Drinks pretty easy.

22oz bottle, shared. Mostly clear dark ruby red color. Little off-white head. Bit of lace. Dark fruity nose. Smooth, lighter, softer carbonation. More dry texture. Some maple syrup. Light chocolate. Little bitter taste. Nice nose and flavor to this. Something about it is lacking for me, but it’s a decent brown ale

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Brown, large frothy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Sweet malty aroma, a little nutty, soft chocolate, cocoa, and salted caramel.   Nutty like breadiness up front, semi-sweet, soft cocoa and a bit of musty chocolate bring up the backside.   Hop aspect is minor.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Seems pretty smooth.   Very clean, lingering nuttiness/breadiness, darker malts, some musty chocolate, with little in the way of hops.   Enjoyed it more than I thought I would!
