22 oz. bottle shared by Ferris. He had a boatload (RV load?) of these after stopping by the brewery en route to RBWG, so they were a mainstay in the Fart Dungeon, hotel, and everywhere else throughout the week. It pours a clear deep copper color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Notes of peanuts, toasted malts, leaves, sugars, a bit of grass and cardboard. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a toasty, earthy mouthfeel. It’s fine, but not a particularly exciting style.

Bottle shared with in a hotel room. Many thanks to Ferris for this one. Hazed reddy copper coloured pour with a lasting loose off white head. Aroma is toffee apple, treacle, woody brown sugars. Flavour is composed of sweet brown sugars, thin, sticky toffee pudding, little apple. Pretty boosty with not much pay off. Palate is thin, sweet, , moderate carbonation. Little woody and cardboard in the finish.

Bomber to taster (shared with the Mrs; thanks Ferris). Looks solid; a mostly transparent chestnut with off-white head. Smells maltyvwithvnotes of grain and toast alongside some mild hops in the background. Tastes like it smells with notes of burnt toffee. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Unoffensive, but underwhelming.

Bomber from Capital Market. Deep amber/ruby in color upon pouring. Fairly subdued nose with a little dark fruit coming through. Mild earthiness up front with quite a bit of dark fruit. A bit of hoppiness, but mostly malts and dark fruit. Very balanced easy drinking strong ale.
