Aroma of pine backed by malt. Ruby color with a extremely frothy off-white head that laces. Starts with balanced pine hop and malt. Medium mouthfeel. Really pleasant. Light carbonation. The finish is well balanced, but the hop now seems to have gone floral. Good!

Ratman197 (14508) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Bomber poured a clear dark copper with a small amber head. Aromas of lime, a bit of carmel, and pine. Palate was medium bodied and resiny. Flavors of citrus, and carmel with a dry, bitter, astringent finish. I hear it gets better with age,Ill have to stash a bottle away for a couple years and see if it improves.

imdownthepub (14334) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2008
Bottled, many thanks Ian for sharing this. Chestnut with dying head. Unbalanced, bitter beer, pushes a dry hard unsophisticated hop to the fore with no refinement. Sharp, almost medicinal with a bite of alcohol and a touch of bath cleaner. Not a pleasant beer to drink or relax with. Poor side of middlling.

Tap. Amber brown color with medium head. Complex aroma taht last the whole brew. Flavor is excellent with blend of character and good alcohol bite at finish. Drink one or have first.

Scopey (14221) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2011
Pint bottle at the Piccadilly. It pours a deep brown/ruby colour with a thick foamy beige head. The nose is caramel, wood, nut, old socks and some menthol notes. The taste is smokey, caramel, charcoal, milk and dark chocolate, tobacco, wood, nut, marshmallow, vanilla and some cherry. The underlying caramel sweetness balances out the rough and ready bitterness. Surprisingly easy to drink and enjoyable.

argo0 (14106) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2003 Dark copper body topped by a small creamy tan head tinged with orange. Aroma is intense grapefruit, medium sweet. Taste is grapefruit, chocolate, finishing alcohol-tinged grapefruit and light chocolate. Medium-full body. I could see this as one of my "Desert Island Beers" -- it's very satisfying, though not enough to stop you from wanting another one or two or six.

djd07 (13990) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2016 Bottle as shown. Pours a dark red color with a small white head. this one had an interesting aroma with strong hops and toasty malts. Laces nicely and the taste was an arora of flavors a very overwhelming taste, like the label says youre not worthy.

DSG (13956) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2009
(11/3/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Escondido. Lovely deep red-ruby color. Aroma of hops, some pine, citrus notes and some malt. Balanced flavor with a good amount of sweet caramelly, a bit bready, malt and rather big bitter hoppiness. Medium to full-bodied. Tasty but doesnt shine.
