Golden-brown colour. Dark fruits and olives on the nose with raisins, dark sugars and bubblegum. Thick, sweet sugar taste with light raisin and fruit. Typical oversweet American Belgian attempt..I will never like this type of unbalanced beer.

Ratman197 (14504) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bomber poured a clear brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of toffee, banana, burnt carmel, cherry, spice and pepper. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of burnt carmel, toffee, light banana, pepper, light cherry and light spice with a smooth lightly warming bittersweet finish. If this beer tasted as good as it smells it would score a lot higher.
