Poured from a 22 ounce bomber thanks to Mike. Nutty, floral, slightly acidic, toffee, pine. Interesting winter warmer. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin tan head. Big malt aroma and flavor. This also has tons of great spice and deep caramel flavors. Nice beer. savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Draft @ PDX. Deep brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of toffee, bready malt, fruity and citrus. Flavor is toffee/caramel malt with a medium hop bitterness and some fruity esters. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Really nice beer, malty but some hop character balances this only out nicely. kereltis (33) - Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Lovely hoppy aroma, rich flavor and wonderful warm winter palette . Now this is a true winter ale, pours a lovely dark red and has the most wonderful rich hoppy flavor, perfect for those winter evening in front of the fire. Highly recommended ale and really is a Vinter Varmer. Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 8, 2012
On tap at Laughing Planet. Dark brown in color with a smooth tan head. Slightly nutty taste with some malt and roasted flavors. Not overly roasted...a solid winter beer.

Bomber. Caramel, spice and nuts. Mild roasted flavors. Lightly boozy with a bitter bite at the end. Tasty. Changed (463) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Aged 22oz with Movis. Can’t rember appearance. Aroma and flavor is dark and rich: caramel, toffee, a little hops, and a yeasty malt finish. Alcohol presence is in your face, but only ~6 in actuality. A bug, tasty beer-- my favorite winter warmer to date. bpreo (2943) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Strong in terms of flavor, not alcohol content. It tastes like it’s 80 proof, but it’s only a gentle 6.4%. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle. Ruby-brown beer with a dark cream colored head. Malt and sweet caramel aroma with light pine. Pine and malt flavor with toffee and light darker malts. Medium bodied. Pine and darker malts linger with light toffee. CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bomber. Dark reddish brown colored with a thin layer of sudsy tan head. Lots of caramel, biscuits and figs in the aroma with a bit of currant and nutty malts at the end. Roasted caramel malt and spiced bread dominate the flavor along with some cocoa, prune and raisin notes in the background. Also some mild herbal hops bitterness in the finish. The body is relatively smooth with plenty of carbonation to round it out. Well-made Winter Warmer with a nice Pacific Northwest style hops bite to it.
