4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from City Beer. Pours really dark ruddy copper with a slight, transient beige/tan head. Aroma is definitely malty, but there’s a lot of complex aroma bits here. Maybe chocolate is one. Roast malt another. Very full bodied. Heat is detectable, but not an issue. Flavor is? There’s very sweet malt; and surely chocolate. BUT BANANA? And a heck of a lot of floral.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Cloudy, dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Very good retention. The nose offers musky hops and heaps of caramel malt – a little too musky and “odd” for my simple nose to fully appreciate. Full-bodied and lightly silky with gentle carbonation. The flavor is well bittered and quite malty at the same time. Fantastic balance and terrific selection of hops and malts. Bittersweet, mildly floral finish.

Bottle at Paradiso Dupont. Aroma of butterscotch and alcohol. Taste is thick, sweet, syrupy caramel with a complexity far greater than most barleywines. Nice stuff.
