3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Dark deep and dirty caramel.   Somewhat of a bready, nutty, and figgy nose.   Peaty on the tongue, very bready, nutty, lots of muted toffee and caramel with a smidgen of smoke and campfire.   Better than expected.   Moderate example, yet solid.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Lingering breadiness and malty smokiness.   Pretty darn good!

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours really dark orange with a slight, transient beige/tan head. Light smoky malt aroma. Med body or better. Smooth slightly treacle heavy malt with some smoke/peat notes. It’s incredibly smooth. Not sure about any hop. :)

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle bought from "Capital Market" in Salem.
Pours a nice chesnut brown,clear, with a lovely thick and frothy light cream coloured head.
Aroma is a little subdued but mostly caramel malts and some nuttiness.
Supremely balanced and malt driven ale as expected for style,caramel,brown demerara sugar notes,some tobacco and earth and a touch of ash..excellent stuff.
Very nice smooth mouth feel..goes down an absolute treat.
Very good approximation of a 70 shilling ale..although the alc is a touch on the high side.
