Draft at the taphouse courtesy of Brandon, thanks! Clear maroon color. Aroma of rye bread and pumpernickel. Taste is rye seeds and carraway. Tasty.

Bottle from the local New Seasons. A: Dark wooden brown with a firm, if receding, creme colored head. Good lacing. N: Coffee, oak, caramel, bourbon, cocoa, cola, bubble gum. All over the place. T: Huge caramel sweetness and tons of cola as a kind of bittering agent. Some butter. M: Medium body and well carbonated. Oily. O: Decent, though I’m not entirely sure what they’re going for here. Strong Ale? Barleywine? Worth a try, but not spectacular.

Bomber from Belmont. They had a good bit of this. Pours a deep black purple color with a small off-white greyish head. A big malty and rye whiskey nose. The flavor is complex and certainly reminiscent of AFTW: sweet berries, toffee, age, whiskey and oak, heat, something harsh and warm like a shot of whiskey in the throat, earthy, plum, smoke. Deep down this is a fruity smoky ale. The heat is a tad bit rough. Good brew.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2013 Tap @ Breakside’s Anniversary event... Poured dark brown, near black with a thick, frothy, light tan head. Barrel notes on the nose. Smooth with a nice booziness. Not really any pronounced smokinesss, just a nice whiskey tone with some sweetness and alcohol warmth.

On draught at Breakside’s 3rd Anniversary Party. Dark brown color. Smoky sweet aroma. Smooth chocolate, rye malt, smoked vanilla flavor. Woodsy finish.

On tap at FredFest 2013. Pours dark brown with a modest beige head and a whiskey aroma. There is a medium-bodied dark malt flavor with lots of whiskey and a dry finish.
