Bomber. I bought this mostly because the ingredient list includes smoked malt! Pours mahogany with a large-ish beige head with good retention; leaves sheeting lace on the glass. Aroma is nutty, earthy, roasty, a bit fruity...kind of stinky, but not in a bad way. Taste is a little smoky, roasty and spicy and finishes with a little bitterness and licorice. Body is medium-full, carbonation average, mouthfeel creamy. I like it.

Tasting sample at the brewery: Pours amber with a nice head and good CO2 release. Low spice aroma, roasted malt, low hop profile. Taste is salty, bitter and spicy. Dry, bitter and unique on the palate. Very interesting, could not drink a bunch though.

Bottle @ Ratman’s. Thanks you, Ratman! Pours a hazy brown appearance with a cream colored head. Quite spicy rye, caramel, piney, bready, light fruity aroma. Fairly spicy, bready, a bit husky, somewhat citrusy flavor. A little disappointing.

Great looking beer poured from a 650ml bottle. Nice spicy character (rye), combined with a nice earthy hopped palate. I like it. Nice carbonation, a real cool factor kind of beer. Definite re-buy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours an unclear, almost brown body under a small, off-white head. Rather malty, almost spiced aroma with some bread and generic fruityness. The flavor has a nice rye influence, with fruityness, some piney hops and a maltyness. Quite pleasant, although I think it’s a bit on the malty side. Full body, quite dry on the palate. Lasting spiced and malty finish. Overall, nice. 130216
