Bomber from Keg & Bottle 2. Pours a medium copper color. Somewhat syrupy. Sweet candy sugar aroma with a little alcohol. Some sweet maltiness along with light trace of hoppiness. Some sweet hoppiness up front. Pretty smooth and easy drinking actually. Alcohol is hidden fairly well, although it does warm when going down. Pretty enjoyable. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 30, 2007
650 ml bottle from Bevmo. Light brown with almost no head. Earthy hoppy aroma. Sweet caramel and alcohol taste with a big hoppy presence and decent bitterness. Gets better as it warms. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Pours dark amber, very clear, with a soft off-white head leaving nice lacing as you drink. Easier to drink then some on the market, lighter body, less hops, alcohol is present but not edgy and harsh. Malts were toasty, caramel and coffee cake flavors, hops balance and bitter, but didn’t have much of a powerful flavor presence. It looks like there is a lot of variation in these beers, others seem to think this was to hoppy, mine wasn’t so, maybe it has sat for a bit and the hops mellowed out.

22 oz. bottle - dark amber and crystal clear; thin body with aroma mix of hops and mild sugar; mild flavors as well with slight bitterness and dry finish; a smooth drinking ale Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Ruby with a nice off white head which dissapates. Aroma is malt, alcohol, caramel, brown sugar, very light hoppiness. Taste is malt, alcohol, hops show up fairly strong along with some caramelized fruit. Doesn’t really come together like you would hope.

Bottle. Cloudy amber pour. Small head. Aroma has some sweetness with notes of honey balanced by some citrus hops. Flavor is well balanced. Sweet honey notes, apple juice, and hops come together very well. It was a tiny bit hot, but not enoug to stop me from really enjoying it. Delirium (673) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Bomber. Pours amber-orange with a large, lasting off-white head. Aroma is caramel malt with a noticeable bit of roast, and bit of light fruitiness with citrus hops. Flavor is quite woody with resiny citrus hops up front, with a bit of caramel and toffee malt in the background. Odd beer. Malt is a whole bunch of flavors, some complementary and some strange; the hops are somewhat aggressive initially and yet at times seem absent; and it’s not too clear where this is going. Smidgen too much of alcohol. Despite all that, it manages to be rather pleasant to drink, and I’d definitely buy it again. anders37 (27667) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Has a malty dark fruit and hoppy bitter aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy bitter flavor with some hints of dark fruit and caramel. Has a dry malty hoppy bitter finish with a long bitter aftertaste. tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 17, 2010
A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d possibly get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off.
better than expected, but still not that great. 2007 vintage. CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bomber. Pours a brownish amber color with a thin layer of resinous head. The aroma is fresh caramel, molasses and toasted malt. The taste begins with a strong dose of malt and caramelized sugar flavors along with dried figs, prunes, vanilla, medicinal hops and woody alcohol. The mouthfeel is syrupy with medium carbonation and a hot, boozy finish. I’d recommend aging this one for a while to let the alcohol mellow out.
