Nice aroma of dates and sugar plums. Flavor seems drier than the aroma would suggest. Hints of leather and wood. Solid. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Deep copper pour with light tan head and lace. Caramel and bread on the nose. Chicory, sweet malt, caramel and an almost EKG hop flavor. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Prometheus (160) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 16, 2010
Poured red with a decent off-white head.
Spice, honey and hops in the flavor and aroma.
Fairly sweet with a nice kick of hops though.
Didn’t like how it felt on the palate though.

Fresh bomber. Pours a dark and lightly hazy reddish-sienna color. A moderate, frothy head of khaki colored foam settles in to a thin film with a ponounced, bubbly edge, leaving sticky, jagged patches of lacing behind. The nose is based in dark toffee and toasted bread, with a hint of brown sugar around the edges. Hints of wood and chicory lend a little earthiness, while grassy hops bring in a balancing aromatic bitterness. Likewise, flavors are well balanced between the toasty-sweet toffee and bread elements and the bitter, earthy, woody spices and grassy hops. The palate is substantial, but perhaps just a little papery for the style, sporting a nice, modeate carbonation and a lingering, spicy finish. Solid brew.

Bottle thanks to travita. Pours with a tan head and a hazy golden body. Aroma of caramel, grain, alcohol, and sweetness. Not a lot of complexity there. Taste is alcohol, grain, and toasty with some hop presence. Light bubbles and a caramelly. Finish.

( 22oz bottle thanks to travita) Pours clear brown with nice oily bubbles. Nose of chlorine, hops, citrus, and caramel. Taste of toasted grain, caramel, very low hop presence, with a good, carbonated warm finish. jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Brown with a small beige head. Aroma is of peat, toffee, caramel, and bread. Taste is of toffee, peat and caramel. drowland (8730) - Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bomber courtesy of emacgee. The aroma is dead on old ale with caramel and esters. The flavor is pretty good too with the same and a hint of age too... nice stuff. Perhaps a bit carbonated for the style. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours a mahogany body with a white head. Dark fruity malt tones, nutty with a light roast y body. Creamy and chewy with a modest warming. Roasted malt with a mild woody and pine tone to round this ale out. Decent. nickd717 (4691) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 3, 2010
Bomber from Chip’s in Kill Devil Hills. Pours a great clear reddish-brown color with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, spice, and honey. Smells pretty nice. Flavor is very sweet but good. Caramel and toffee, sweet honey, and resinous hops. Somewhat syrupy on the palate with medium-full body. A pretty solid beer overall - really enjoyed it.
