Bomber pours brilliantly clear deep copper with three minute long tan head. The aroma has a modest mix of berry, prunes and apple as well as lesser amounts of syrup covered pineapple and just a sense of yeasty spiciness off in the background. The taste is pretty similar and pulls together a pleasing array of prunes, cherries and apples as well as a slight sense of tannins coming from somewhere. To midway a bit of sugar caramel arrives as well as mild yeasty spice notes. This is an easy drinking brew were the spice and slight drying tannin like note do a good job to give the sweet fruitiness a smidgeon of balance. bhensonb (15188) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours brilliant copper with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Aromas of roast malt and yeast/spice pepperiness. Medium body with frothy carbonation. It’s caramel with a lot of yeast/spice. Mildly pepper/hot. Bitter? More sweet than bitter. But the pepperiness seems to accumulate in the mouth. It’s really nice.

Pours a nice copper caramel color with a slightly off white sticky head. Aroma is nuts, caramel, malts, touch of spices and yeasts. Flavor is caramel, nuts, touch of spices, a hnint of belgian yeasts, not overly sweet like many dubbels and very easy to drink. Extremely quaffable, but not as robust as I expected from the Belgian Dubbel style. Nice brew. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - FEB 3, 2012
3 feb 2012, bottle. Red/amber, clear. Great nose. I’d almost say smells like a barley wine than a quad. Sweet, wet bread, warm cherries, alcohol and raisins. Great! Med/thin body and fizzy. Too fizzy for the beer. Sweet bready beer with not as much alcohol or taste complexity as I hoped.

Rusty brown in color, thin creamy head. Malty sweet aroma almost like cinnamon raisin toast. Flavor notes of more sweet malt and dried fruits. Overall, slight watered down flavor but tasty and drinkable.

22oz bottle. Really not bad, but fails in the way so many american versions of belgians go. Ruby brown pour with creamy, tightly bubbled head.. quite pretty. Nose is strong and herby, sweet malts, molasses. Sip is full and sharply flavored but still off. Could use more strongly present and flavored alcohol note. Finishes roasty and sweet, quite tasty. But overall a bit weak. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2010

Nice dark copper brown with quickly dissipating head. Nose is malt and dark fruits. Taste is a little woody with boozy chocolate and more darker fruits like overripe cherries and plums.
