3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours a clear dark amber/brown with small beige head and not much lacing. Aroma is not strong, but has oak, licorice, cardamom, and lots of bready malts. Taste is sweet at first with a bitter boozy finish. Body is medium to full with a slightly oily mouthfeel and average carbonation. I love doppelbocks, but this one is a bit strong and simple for me.

Aroma: Smelling of bread, toffee, cardamom and vanilla.
Appearance: A hazy brown colored beer. A low off-white head with small lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting toffee, bread, chocolate, grass and vanilla.
Palate: Low carbonation, a soft texture. A big body with a slightly dry finish.
