3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the ’Butter’s Last Supper’ tasting. Pours a clear dark amber with good white head and fair lacing. You can tell right off the nose that this is old. Medicinal antisceptic piney hop aroma with a good backbone of malt that shines through in flavor. And also vegetal, with hot spicy floral faded hops. A bit cloying on the palate. I guess I will have to try this again fresh. Awesome label though.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bomber. Clear, darkish copper-amber with a lasting half-inch of creamy foam. Big aroma is a nice blend of orange, grapefruit, tea leaf, caramel and light cocoa. Flavor is the same great blend with some additional dry leaf, wood and grapefruit on the finish. Medium-heavy body is mostly smooth and a little sticky, but dangerously drinkable. Drippy lacing all over the glass.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cindirene’s. Pours dark copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, hops, fruity, and some slight funky spicy hints. The flavor is hoppy, with a hefty caramel malt base, and some mid-palate yeasty spice, fruity tartness, and late earthy peppery notes. Very complex with well hidden alcohol, this one is rock solid.
