Draft 12 oz pour at the brewery. Pours a nice dark amber color with a patchy tan head. Has a very nutty aroma and flavor. Dry up front, malty, and a creamy body to it. Light vanilla and heavy caramel. Pretty standard scotch ale for me, but good overall. Would love to find the fun versions of this some day.

An interesting beer, but strange tastes throughout. Pours a deep red with a thin grey head. Smells of sea salt, scallops, smokiness and caramel. Taste seems like it tries too hard, some caramel, and like an earlier reviewer said, Dr. Pepper. Empty finish. Had in the bottle.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours strawberry/copper with a slight, transient beige head. Aroma of deeply roasted malts - almost like meat. Near full bodied. Flavor is fruity/roasty malt. A bit, woody is not the word, but its close. Theres an almost strawberry note to go with the very rich malts. Despite all the malt its not all that sweet. Tho certainly not dry. Hops dance around in the background. Maybe theres a chocolate hint. Its very "fresh", fruit wise. Really good, if youre in a malty mood.
