COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is indeed a full-bodied Strong Ale; a Hybrid between a Porter and a Scottish Ale…
This hearty winter warm ale is named in honor of American poet Henry Longfellow.

I remember the black wharves and the ships, and the sea tides tossing free……. And the beauty and mystery of the ships, and the magic of the sea. –“My Lost Youth”

Thebullshornbar (63) - Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2014
This beer has a traditional English character with a malty backbone supporting notes of toffee, dried fruits, and leather. It finishes dry with a mustiness from the English hops that makes the beer well balanced and easy to drink.

Bomber from Knightly in Orlando, FL. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is sort of cola. Flavor is a little chocolate, some light toast/burnt malt, and likely a bi of coffee. Ok, but not strong in flavors.

Bottel @ home, aged 2 years. Pours clear dark red/brown, some lacing from the beige head. Nose is sweet and somewhat vinous. Licorice, herbs, and lots of dark friuts mostly raisins. Restrained chocolate and roasted malt. Quite tiny mouth feel. Taste is sweet, brown sugar like plus citrus-sour and herbal with hints of red berries, chocolate and dates. Dry sour finish.

radarsock (823) - Vermont, USA - DEC 15, 2013
$6.99 for the 650mL bottle purchased from Top Shelf Brews Friday evening. To oversized snifter, it pours a reddish-tinted dark brown with an off-beige, sudsy head barely even a fingernail in length. Aromas of caramel, tangerine zest, vanilla extract,and alcohol. Tastes weirdly of those little caramel squares with which raisins, and grape juice has been added. Incredibly bizarre. By swallow, it’s hinting at earthy hops and burnt brown sugar. Seriously, what the hell is this? I had low expectations buying the bottle, but this is just too odd to finish. A good 90% of Shipyard’s inventory is crap.

Bomber--once again, one of those beers I have had several times thinking I have rated it, but haven’t! Deep brown color with a good size, off brown head. Aroma of malt, roast caramel and a touch of vanilla, nice! For the taste add the aroma with some sweet chocolate as a based. A little heavy on the finish, but not oily. Produce place

(Bottle). Aromas of roasted malt, caramel and hops. The taste is slightly spicy with flavors of roasted malt, dried fruit and caramel. In the aftertaste there is a distinct hoppy bitterness.

Smak och doft av humle, malt, torkad frukt, farinsocker, mörk choklad med aromer av nötter och honung. God beska.
