Bomber from Julio’s. Pours out a lovely deep brown color. Little to no head. Nice roasty aromas. Flavor is deep and complex, although the body is on the "thin" side by today’s standards. Decent carbonation. Slight fruitiness going down, but finishes with a very long roasted malt character with just enough bitterness to balance everything. Very tasty!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep mahogany with fantastic lacing, thick foamy head that held extremely well and finally faded into a thick collar and lots of wisps when swirled. Aroma is earthy brown sugar, a little woody and nutty. Taste is bitter chocolate, molasses, and earthy hops. Full, rich mouthfeel, a bit silty. Low carbonation despite that huge head.

Pretty run-of-the mill brown ale. Mildly sweet, a bit of caramels and toffees, a bit roasty. I don’t think there’s anything particularly unique about this beer, which might be what they were going for, because it’s still pretty tasty if not fantastic.

Bottle I took to the Dad Pad. Pours a dark brown with a medium sized tanned beige head. Sweet malt and a bit of nuttiness. Medium bodied, soft caramel, malty, roast and a bit of cocoa. Long ashy roast with a bit of malt and nuttiness into the finish. Easy drinking, lots of nice roast notes but thins out into a sessionable and rather drinkable beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rich, super hazy deep brown coloured body with a very muddied glow and a nice two centimetre tall tan head - this is a great looking beer which has a very nice unfiltered look. Aroma of roasted malt, bananas, yeast, light cloves, milk and some subdued chocolate notes. Full-bodied; Strong malt note with a lot of pungent alcohol and bitterness up front with a little earthiness and a touch of coffee on the finish, all with a very big bitterness throughout from metal. Aftertaste is relatively one-dimensional with the malt bitterness hitting hard and some light sweetness as well. Overall, a fairly simple beer that looks great and smells nice, but the taste just simply doesn’t deliver - way too bitter and one-sided, while not providing any good flavours nor complexity. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 18-July-2014 for US$8,25 sampled at home here in Washington on 30-September-2014.

This was very underwhelming not a very good beer in general. the only aspect of the beer was a lot of malts, not very nutty, or other flavors typically associated with a brown ale
