4th June 2013
Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Light spice on the nose. Viscous soft palate. Creamy dark malt, airy. Strong cinnamon and cloves. Trace of citric hop. Finishes spice bitter and dry. Hugely over spiced and hugely disappointing. A rare Stone howler! Drain pour.

Bomber. Pours black with a frothy head. Spices on the nose as expected. Cinnamon leads the pack. Decent body. Less roasted quality than expected. Bitterness balances out the sweetness. Slight off flavor on the finish. Alcohol hidden quite nicely. Have another? Maybe in a couple years.

Pours dark, almost black, with a nice coffee colored head. I think there may be a bit of smoke in the aroma - and some molasses. Flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and honey. A bit sweet and very creamy in the mouth. The head leaves nice lacing on the glass as the beer goes down. This beer may be too sweet for some people, but I think it is pretty taste even though I don’t normally like sweet beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Licorice and ginger aroma complemented by faint pine and black currant. Opaque black under a ruddy, light brown ring and wisps that last. Sweet pumpkin pie spices and juniper and ginger and licorice flavour with a medium bitterness that almost balances the sweetness. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter licorice finish.
