Bottle in Seattle. Modest, contrasting head on a coppery dark brown. Dark lager aroma, cool and lightly metallic, with a fair amount of raisins. Dried fruit, bitter chocolate and coffee bean, low sweetness. Nice dry bittering grain. Interesting example of the style. Nice bitter beer.

Bomber from Healthy Spirits Cortland. Heater Allen? Barely even know her! Cloudy chestnut color with a one finger off white head. Aroma is nice, nutty, caramel, toasted bread, tree sap. Flavor is dry and medium bitter with a touch of sweetness. Caramel, woody, nice for the style. Medium body with average carbonation. Nice to see an American brewery do alt right. Ah crap didn’t mean to say alt right. Those guys suck. krumbum (1109) - truckee, California, USA - NOV 19, 2016

Fatehunter (2614) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Pours a thin head on a hazy dark brown body. Aroma is lots of dry grain and caramel. Taste has a nice roast flavor, a little spice and finishes with a mild lemon bitter. Texture is soft. shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle. Thanks Nevitt. Nice, caramel, but crisp, lightly hopped. Nutty, biscuits. Belgian almost. Like it.
maekchu (4054) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2016
Bomber. Big fat malty nose, light prune, quite nutty. Dark amber color, thick beige head, and thick lace. Mild toasty malt, bitterness hits in mid, then some gentle dark fruit and nuts, dry finish. Thin-medium body. Heavier flavors than expected. Possibly infected. But still fairly pleasant. KyotoLefty (10688) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 30, 2016
Bomber. Dry, minerally nose, caramel, pencil lead. Smells infected, though not in a huge way. Nice malty flavor, chocolate, nuts, dry and minerally. Again the minerals are strong, and so is bitterness, hoppy as well. It has the dry, airy carbonation that along with the pencil nose seems like an infection. Still interesting, with nice malt and hoppy. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2016
This poured a darker red with an off white head. Aroma was of caramel, light fruit, and grass. Flavor similar, very clean, but not overly sweet like most alts. First heater Allen I’ve had and I’m impressed.
