COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This special edition old style ale features chocolate, vanilla, habanero chiles, maize, and honey, all of which were used and cultivated by the Mayan civilization. Mayan Maybe was first brewed to honor the end of the Mayan calendar. We cast off predictions of doom and gloom and fired up the brew kettle once again. (A.B.V., 10.5%)

Pours a very dark brown from a bottle. Aroma is an interesting chocolate/raw tobacco, flavor is similar, sweet. Didn't notice any chile. Pretty good beer.

Really had higher hopes for this as the description in the bottle sound so much better. But the aroma and flavor barely have any of the qualities described. Body is a touch on the thin side though everything is fairly well balanced and alcohol is very well hidden. Just kind of a ho hum beer.

Draft at Great Basin, Reno. Deep brown pour with a persistent beige head. Aroma is really quite fantastic. Subtle smokiness to go with the hint of chilies, dark chocolate, and vanilla. I’d swear there was espresso used here as well. The flavor is a balance of the roast, dark chocolate and vanilla. Light smoky presence and light heat from the chilies. The chilies are definitely not overpowering, so don’t be afraid. This was one of my favorites of my visit to GB.

A fairly strong chile in the aroma and even stronger in the body. I’ve never been a chile beer fan and this no excrptuon. The heat is just far too much for me. The old.ale.flavor is there but just not enjoyable. Not for me at all.

Bottle at home. Pours clear dark brown with a medium, creamy tan head, medium retention. Aroma is moderate chocolate, roast malt, habaneros, vanilla and light earthy hops. Flavor is moderate chocolate, medium roast and bready malt, vanilla, spicy habaneros, light earthy hops and bitterness with a medium sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Bomber poured into a chalice shaped glass. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki head of foam. Good head retention. The aroma has smoky jalapeño, sweet milk chocolate, and something like a spiced nut. Upon the first few sips, the beer is not overly spicy, but there is plenty of pepper influence. I get the jalapeño in the forefront with a small warming sensation toward the back of the throat. As I take more sips, I get more of a chocolate character. Kind of like a dry, earthy, dark chocolate. Big bodied. Near chewy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

IrishBoy (4269) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 12, 2017
2016 Bomber from Tavour. Nose is chocolate, vanilla, and hint of tobacco. Flavor is light chili peppers, chocolate, and vanilla. Nice because they went light on the peppers and didn’t overpower the other flavors. Brownish red with a medium lightly lacing beige head.

3.8
Ratman197 (16046) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Bomber poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of bakers cocoa, chilies, smoke, vanilla and tobacco. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, chilies, smoke and light vanilla with a smooth lingering smokey chili cocoa finish.

Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: AleSmith Barrel-Aged Reserve snifter glass From: Beer Advocate’s DoubleBogey Price: $8.99 (estimate) Purchased: N/A; Received on March 10, 2016 Consumed: May 24, 2016 Misc.: Bottled in Dec. 2015; Reviewed as an Old Ale Thanks, Chad! Really looking forward to this one. I’ve grown into the fact that Old Ales are one of my favorite styles of beer. Pretty soon I’ll go back and confirm that for sure, but pretty sure I’m correct. Thrown in the fact that 404 Scytale was phenomenal and I’m hoping this can be somewhere near the 4.20-4.30 range. Poured a dark, mahogany color with two fingers of tan, frothy head. Good deal of bubbles coming up along the sides of the glass. Great spiderweb, foamy lacing. Good retention. (Sight - 4.25) Smelled an initial whiff of spicy malts and imperial stouts, reminding me of a Mexican Chocolate stout. Specifically got jalapeno, black pepper, chili peppers and hints of cinnamon for the spices, and cocoa nibs, milk chocolate, black coffee beans, roasted toffee and chocolate syrup for the stout part. This is great on the nose. (Smell - 4.50) Taste wasn’t quite as good, but still delicious. First taste seemed to go all the way through my body. Got milk chocolate, dark cocoa nibs, some kind of combo of jalapeno and habanero spices, probably habanero, black peppery spices, fudge, chocolate syrup, vanilla, roasted malts, molasses and toasted toffee. Spiciness wore off somewhat as it went down. Fantastic. (Taste - 4.25) Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, warming, slightly spicy finish. (Feel - 4.50) This was just a really good beer. Such a smooth old ale. (Overall - 4.25) 4.34 96 A
