Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a clear red amber with a huge foamy beige head and a lot of lacing. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate. Medium in body with a lively mouthfeel. The flavor is malty and roasty, with floral hops. Spicy finish. Nice beer. DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bomber. On the dark side for an Irish Ale, rich, malty, but with plenty of hoppiness to back it up. Finishes spicy, with a lingering stickiness that makes me want more.

Bomber from Taylor’s Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours a very, very dark mahogany with a foamy beige head. Smells of rough roast malt, sweet with a hint of chocolate, with some floral aspects. Med body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is roast malt with a light touch of chocolate. Hop seems to vary between citrus and pine. Kind of a rough, unsmooth finish. Which is ok, it adds character. marcus (10144) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 17, 2011
Bottle from Taylor’s Market, Sacramento. Pours reddish brown with a rich beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a slightly sour smoked malt flavor with a very dry bitter finish. Very well-balanced and drinkable. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 22, 2011
22oz bottle, purchased at Bottle Barn. (I remember really digging this beer on draft when Jeremy (brewer) was visiting TAPS Petaluma; didn’t bother to rate the draft version at the time.) Pours a medium, amber-brown color with high clarity; creamy, fine-bubbled white head with modest retention and nice lacing. Aroma presents, seemingly, a whole bunch of Maris Otter-like malt character (biscuity, light buttery caramel), along with some fruitiness and a very quiet hop aroma; malt-driven, and a fine showcase of British malts. Medium body; medium-high CO2; a nice, endearing mouthfeel overall (the draft version was like silk). Lots of toasty, biscuity British malts first and foremost (with hints of butterscotch and caramel on the periphery); while the mentioned Amarillo additions don’t really play out very prominently, the hop presence is quite smooth, with some orange and citrus flavor quietly popping up; very light red fruit notes; ultimately a crisp, solidly drinkable showcase of British malts with a light accompaniment of American hops. I could go for a more forceful display of Amarillo... but I always could. Medium-length finish of toasty and biscuity malts, with hints of an orange and mineral bitterness; nicely dry at the far end.

Tampa, FL - Total Wine - 22 oz bomber. Medium copper pour, sticky off-white head that leaves plenty of sticky lacing. Sweet toffee-like aroma with some brown sugar accents. Chewy flavor with some caramel-like sweetness, a bit of toffee, some earthy peat-like notes. Mouthfeel has a bit of chewiness to it. Pretty solid - first I have had from this brewer/ BREWMUSKCLES (2671) - New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2012
it has an adequate malt character with just a hint of butterscotch type rye and Earth. the malt is fresh with a touch of sweetness. the finish has a bit of bitter hops like an English ale. the color is a nice deep really brown with some red hue in it. the body is moderate with low carbonation.
