Bomber from the brewpub. Mike Hahn is a great brewer so this is a cool idea. Pours a dark ruby color with a small white head. The aroma is rich sweet malty and fruity elements, earthy and some brown malt. The flavor is a rich mix of berries, caramel, lots of strawberry, dusty and fairly dry, a smooth solid Scotch Ale. It comes across as a tad bit thin perhaps, but otherwise a great new offering. Some smokiness here, I believe they used some smoked malts, but not a ton of smoke.
