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”

$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.

Bomber from ABC on Thomasville ($3.99). Dark brown pour with a thin tan head and slight lacing. Aroma is warm brown sugar, dark fruit, roasty malts. Tastes are dark chocolate, brown sugar, honey, nutty, earthy hops. Drinkable enough.

Bottle pour in South Florida. Snifter. Pours a very dark, opaque with an off-white head that is thick at first. Head diminishes quickly to a thin head. Great lacing. Very good looking overall. Aroma is very good with heavy malts, caramel, light smoke and wood. Taste is very malty with hints of coffee (slight bitterness), caramel and oak. I also detect some coconut. Mouth feel is very smooth with a pleasant finish.

Nice roasted malt flavor with chocolate, light coffee, light smoke, nuts, light fruits and moderately bitter grassy hops. Woody and nice bitter finish. Very good scottish ale.

Bottle, shared with esp0r december 1st 2012. Dark brown body, a bit hazy, creamy light brown head. Aroma of malt, hazelnut, dark fruit. Taste of burned malt, coffee, chocolate and flowery hops. Good but unbalanced. Low carbonation, sherry-like aftertaste.

Bulk_Carrier (3722) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JAN 11, 2013
It pours jet black leaving a one inch foamy lumpy off-white head. The head slowly dies to a centimeter lasting a little longer in my nonic. Minimal lacing is left. The smell is slightly malty and has a dry coffee aroma coming through as the beer warms. The taste is bittersweet through the malts and the dry coffee. The palatre is about a light to medium with lots of harshness coming through at all angles, kinda bad for an English Porter. This is fairly drinkable. Overall, I’m not impressed with this one.
