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.

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.

$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
