UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 On draught at OíNeillís on 12 Nov 11. Pours a clear and impressive deep dark amber with lasting tan head. Medium to full body. Rich malty flavors with subtle spices and a slight warming note. A bit filing but nice cold weather sipping beer. 11/12/2011 On draught at OíNeillís Stone Beer Dinner. Pours a dark amber with a white head. Full-bodied. Even match between chile and slightly dry malty flavors. Late bump from chile heat. Belgian yeast character comes out when paired with clam chowder. Cinnamon spice not pronounced.

Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of burnt carmel, cinnamon and light chilies. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of burnt carmel, cinnamon, toffee and a hint of chilies with a crisp lingering burnt carmel finish.

Tap. Interesting. Can definitely get the chili in both the flavor and aroma. Not sure if Iíd consume mass quantities but glad I tried it.

Pours a nice reddish brown and has a very interesting spice character that got worse as time went by for me.

Bomber. Dark brown and clear with a very small head. Nose is a bit winey and herbal with little malt or hop presence. Taste is bit herbal/perfumy, with some mild peppery flavors and a sticky sweetness. I donít get this as a Belgian strong ale, which I always assume would have much more maltiness and a firmer body. Overall a decent beer but for a vertical just average.

minihame2 (305) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2013
Very nice dark and clear amber colour with a tan head, looks really good. Aroma has malts, syrup, some coffee and maybe cherries? Taste is quite special... Itís almost like cough syrup or something. A little bit bitter with syrupy sweetness. Even the texture kinda oily like that. This oneís quite different but the taste really kills it for me and I donít really find it that good.

natejgood (439) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Pours a hazy medium re with minimal head. Aroma of light spices and brown sugar - and maybe a bit of banana. Lightly sweet taste in the mouth, and the carbonation explodes in small bubbles when the beer hits the tongue. There is a bit of a sour or bitter flavor as well. Fairly heavy flavor and the beer itself feels a bit heavy in the mouth.
