3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy copper brown from the bottle with minimal lacy head. Aroma is sweet and malty, toffee and caramel, hints of Belgian yeast, dark fruitiness. Taste is much more on the dark fruity esters, hint of boozy sweetness on the back of the tongue. Almost no carbonation left, bit of a burn, too sweet for me.

Bottle shared by Phaleslu (a.k.a donkey butt) fruity aroma, sweet malts, dark fruits fo sho. Palate is thick, but finish really tapers off and waters itself down. Not much head or carbonation, but it is a few years old. Ok, but not exceptional.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber, #507/6168. Poured a lovely shade of fiery orange with a dense beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty notes, golden raisins, vanilla, and peppercorn spicage, with molasses sugars if you dig deep.. mightily malty, but there was a decent yeasty complement. The flavor was sweet as expected, with molasses, honey, and raisins leading this time (molasses came back strong on the finish too).. peppery and fruity notes from the yeast laced throughout.. dried out on the finish, leaving molasses, dark fruit, and spicy yeast. Medium-bodied with creamy, filling carbonation upfront that mysteriously disappeared toward the back (it felt almost flat on the finish).. OK balance, with a bit too much emphasis on the sweet stuff.. solid drinker overall.
