Bomber at home- core 3. Thanks Cathy C! Pretty typical for the style but quality level I would expect from Smuttynose. Pours a nice amber. Definitely on the sweet side but pleasant enough. Caramel and fruity esters dominate. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A candied nose with a touch of bubblegum and malt. The taste profile features caramel malt, brown sugar, and that hint of bubblegum. A heavy, fizzy carbonation blocks the potential for more complex tastes to emerge. the body is a bit thin for an 8% scotch ale as well.

Pours a beautiful deep mahogany with light tan top. Aroma of malty sugar with just a whiff of peat smokiness. Flavors of caramel candy and almost no alcohol. Very smooth finish. Just delicious!

Well done. Looks like this will be in my fall lineup from now on. Little sweeter than other scotch ales, must be the candied sugar addition.

A: The smell is light caramel/toffee/vanilla, a bit old and funky, with just a hint of smoke.
A: Pours a hazy dark brown with a reddish tint. Two fingers of foamy head that dissipate slowly. Very nice lacing with hardly any carbonation.
T: Malty sweetness mostly. Brown sugar and toffee up front. Light smoke notes, booze with some dark fruit. Slight metallic off-flavors near the finish.
P: Light side of medium, creamy with mild carbonation.
O: Very nice beer, slight metallic off-flavors keep it from being World Class, wish it was a little sweeter...
