Bomber from michael-pollack. Pours pretty black with a fizzy tan head. Nice aroma of roast or rye malt with some spice and fruit. Med+ body with strong carbonation. The first impact is dark fruit, then a bit of earthiness, some fruit/floral hop, and some peppery spice pops up. Pretty good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 4/5/11
Aroma: The aroma has spice, clove, pepper, yeast, caramel, chocolate, light fruit, biscuit, and grass
Appearance: The pour is fairly dark brown color with a creamy lighter brown colored head
Flavor: A mix of what’s in the nose, decent sweetness and decent hops, with a prominent spiciness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a nice drinkability, lively carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Another interesting attempt from the Terrapin Side Project Series, I tend to find most of their Side Project beers to be anywhere from drinkable to good. This one was quite nice. An enjoyable dark saison.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours very dark brown with full chocolate milk shake head. The aroma offers up black grapes, blueberries, prunes, a touch of cloves, yeast and a faint lemon sense. The taste is similar with sweet black grapes, blueberries, prunes and clove like spices all mixing together. It gets a touch apple like to midway creating a bit more complexity and depth. Well off in the background is a sense of dark roasted malts.
