COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brotherhood can be a powerful force. Take for example the brothers from Two Brothers Brewing Company and Solemn Oath Brewery. Both breweries continually create products that are more than just an enjoyable beer. They are libations that get people excited and talking about a movement for taste! This collaboration was designed to combine both breweries wildly talented teams and challenge them to make two unique brews using the same base beer. This bath was dry hopped with a ridiculous amount of cascade hops.

AWISLguy (1333) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bomber from DiCarlo Arminetti in Mundelein. No bottle date. Pours a very dark brown with a white head. Some lacing. Aroma has brown sugar, caramel, pine and light molasses. Sweet smelling and somewhat rich. Taste is of sweet caramel, burnt sugars, light pine. Medium bodied and a bit sticky. No real alcohol presence. Finishes sweetly. Not sure of "barrelling" in this one. Really no hops presence either - may be dead; no bottle date. A solid fairly tasty brown, he says, damning with faint praise.

bhiner41 (182) - La Grange, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Funky dank smell of malt almost hinting on sour. Appearance is root beer brown with no head and very few bubbles. Taste is not great. Nothing special kind of flat and nothing really stands out...disappointed in this one.

tmoreau (2465) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Shared bomber, poured to snifters, and displayed a black/brown hue, with a presentable layer of tan head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was floral and roasted, with some mocha notes, and light nuttiness. The taste continued the roastiness, with fair alcohol presence, and tanniny astringency & dryness to the hop bitterness. Medium bodied, decent, but uneventful, considering the descriptive promo.

batch 2 .. pours your basic brown show polish .. mild foam, spots of lacing .. . muddled malts, and some grain .. . not bad but i see no reason to go after this .. . . I just used one vacuum to vacuum another. I could be wrong, but I think this is how Jeffrey Dahmer got started.

574deadzone (1057) - North Central, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bomber. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a thicker khaki head that settles to a ring and leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves nutty brown ale qualities, fresh pine, and toasted malt. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter also, nice balance. Medium bodied, oily, fairly active, with a long piney and drying bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Despite that I am not a big brown ale fan, I decided to give this blend a try. Why? Because I love Two Brothers. I do not like coffee, or nutty flavors in my beer. Not even in the winter. Saying this, I was not a fan of this beer. I can see what the two breweries are attempting to do here, and I think that it is a great collaboration. Its a deep dark brown, just short of black. The head pours a solid one inch and it actually stayed at about 1/4 inch all the way until I finished it. It smells of coffee, nut and maybe a hint of coco. It’s not a thick beer, it’s actually really smooth. It has a strong dark ale flavor, with the nutty coffee taste, and it has a little spice hidden in the back. Overall, it’s not a beer of choice for me. Sorry, but the stouts and dark ales are just not my thing. But if they are yours, id suggest giving this a try. I do love it when two great breweries get together and work their magic.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2014
This beer pours a dark brown color with a thick and fluffy light beige head that recedes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, citrus and hops. Medium-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of caramel malt, earthy hops and pine. The finish is malty up front with a piney hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

Headbanger (3325) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2013
22oz bottle 12/14/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-42° in Mug-Pours a dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma of hops, caramel, toffee, and malt. Taste of the same with more hops. This medium bodied brew is a bit different but still tasty. Nice job.

edwardbass (527) - Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Dark brown color, aroma is not typical for a brown ale, which I really like - more hoppy then most brown ales I’ve tried. Taste is roasted malt, dried fruit and a nice citrus hops bitterness. The dry hopping is obvious, as it lends a lightness to what I was expecting to be a very "heavy", malty beer. Darn good stuff.

wlajwl (3927) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Aroma is citrus, fruit/candy and malts. The flavor is malts, strong citrus, malts, very light toffee/caramel and a tart/sourish finish.
