2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A - Amber orange hue with light white head.
S - Oak, tart aroma, agree w/ previous reviewer (magic marker odor).
T - Taste of a cider, oak, caramel.
M - Begins heavy, light finish, definitely some tartness (to be expected)
O - Swing, and a miss! Not sure what the intent was with this one. Guess if you’ve spent the time aging it in barrels, you’re probably not going to wash it down the drain. Instead ~ wait until Dark Lord day and dump the inventory! I’ve always been a fan of 3F, but this one was a fail.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to trade with joromiller! Pours a hazy copper from the yellow waxed bomber with fluffy cream colored head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of sour Belgian yeast, dark fruits, esters of pepper, but mostly sour fruits. Taste is both sweet and sour notes, nice streets from the yeast and malts, sour dark fruit and pepper, but overlying bourbon oak sweetness, vanilla. Complex with a lingering sour character, in a wonderful way. At first I thought I was duped, but this deserves a much better rating.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber pours a hazy copper brown with small off-white head and hardly any lacing. Aroma is full of cherries, booze, and a bit of oak and vanilla. Taste is initially sweet and fruity with a sour and chemical finish, with medium to full body and slight carbonation. I love Three Floyds, but this one ($18 at the brewpub) is way overpriced for what it delivers.

22oz bottle shared by Brad, thanks! Pours a clear light yellowish orange with a thick head, the aroma has a good amount of spice in the nose with some barrel notes, the flavor has a good amount of sweetness on the front end with a fruity and yeasty like finish, pretty interesting stuff.
