Bomber released 3/25/12, drank on 5/17/14. I never had this beer fresh, but it is very mellow after 2 years in the cellar. Toffee and sweetbreads in the aroma, it pours a rich mahogany opaque color, with a tan persistent head. The aroma has a light punch, but it softens quickly into alcoholic warmth. Aftertaste is light and long. Very well done for the style, I’m a fan

Bottle. Pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a moderate off white head on it. Nose is a little sweet and filled with just a bit of grains, with a hint of some whiskey in there. Taste is little sweet and heavy, and ever so slightly boozy.
