3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Mason Lounge, listed as a Barleywine, so sort of rated from that perspective. Amber-copper body, looks filtered. Lots of rising carbonation bubbles meet an off-white, creamy head. The molasses smooths out the already malty beer. Adds some sweetness too. Creamy and smooth, this would be a fun beer to bring to a tasting. Almost has some Cream Ale tones incorporated into the rich amber malt. Vanilla touches. Quite nice, well executed.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear reddish amber with an small off-shite head and minimal lace. Aromas of molasses, dark fruit and brown sugar. Caramel malt seetness up front, accompanied by molasses, smoke and a rummy alcohol burn. Medium body, minimal carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel, and an alcohol burn in the finish. Might have liked this more if I liked rum. But I don’t.

Bomber. Medium orange brown with light lacing. Sugar cane, stoney/minerally, light rum notes, and a light woodiness. Taste has a lightly dry sweetness. Body is lighter with an oily feel. This beer seemed like a watered down dark rum.
