Bomber from... somewhere. Pours the flanderís red cinnamon deep amber color, decent amount of foam initially, but itís thin in constitution and fades away within a couple of minutes, leaving a thin, persistent film on 75% of the beerís surface. Aroma is all sweet malts, like candi sugar and cinnamon. The only pepper burn comes through literally as a burn to the insides of my nostrils. Taste is malt-forward, followed by a touch of the dark hint of heat from the Anaheims, with a resounding cinnamon and red-hots finish. Funny, hadnít thought of that candy in years, but here it sort of is in beer form. Cool. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation and a long finish. Nice beer. Not great, and not as good as most of the others, but still fun and high quality.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 opened on 12-12-12, cellared at exactly 55 degrees since its release. Much more malt, and Belgian yeast aroma. Hints of a cherry cinnamon aroma. More of those in the flavor. A little touch of heat and pepper flavor, but much more malt and Belgian character than when it was fresh. Has aged nicely though. This beer pours a dark copper. Aroma of malt, and almost fruit. It isnít as harsh in the mouth as one might think, but it isnít a smooth beer either. Malty taste, but the peppers really shine through without being abrasive. It hides the 9.4% well, until you get about halfway through. Should be an interesting beer as it ages.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Dark copper color. The chiles dominate the nose. The palate is a balance o sweetish malt, the anaheims and some hops. The cinammon just disappears among everything else. Very good.

mikesaum (615) - Newark, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Pours dark amber with khaki head, aroma is strong belgian yeast and a bit of cinnamon, no chiles, the yeast is spicy in aroma. Taste is complex, semi sweet with a deep rich flavor, nice belgian spice from the yeast, some heat from the chilies and a dash of cinnamon, abv is masked well, very good, would love to see how this ages

Draft at Blue monk. Pours a reddish brown with an off white head that is very frothy. Sweet Aroma with brown sugar and some spice. Tastes sweet up front with a lot of brown sugar and belgian yeast. Not too spicy, but thereís definitely something going on.

Scubatrip (605) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2012
From the bottle, pours a deep dark red with an off-white foamy head, nice lacing. Deep sweet malty aroma with hints of alcohol and a bit of yeast. Heavy flavor, earthy, dark malt, some cherries, alcohol, canít find the cinnamon. Quality as always from these guys.

stangger (601) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2012
On tap at bradys. Ruby pour. Strong malty aroma, english yeast. Strangely fruity, tart, dark malts. Strong. Strange. I didnít love this. Probably least favorite stone beer so far.

Bomber pours dark copper with a nice rocky khaki.head. aromas of cinnamon some chillies some funky yeast and heavy malts also candied sugars and a bit boozy. Flavor is mixed sweet and funky from the chillies also yeast comes through. Body is medium full and finish leaves a weird chilly flavor
