Transparent amber mahogany brown with a thin, clingy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of toasty dry caramel malts and some resiny grapefruity hops. Starts with good malty fullness and dark caramel sweetness along with a pleasant citrusy bittering hop balance and bitterness before a crisp bittersweet finish. A nice strong ale.

Bomber poured a clear dark reeddish brown with a smasll diminishing tan head. Aromas of tootsie roll, carmel and light nuts. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, carmel, nuts and light smoke with a smooth malty finish. CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Pours from bomber a dark brown/black, forms nice size light brown foamy head. Aroma of smoky like malts, peat earth, and mud. Flavour much of the same, hops do come through, giving a slight bitterness that balances this beer nicely. Fairly good draft beer, would love to bathe in it first, then gulp it. glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Dark brown with moderate head. 2 of my favorite flavor profiles in a beer are definitely smoke and hops, and the LSD gives me both. It is really just a hint of smoke that could probably be mistaken for deeply roasted malt or barrel aging. Moderately sweet base malt. Really enjoyable mix that I can easily drink a 22oz of.

This is one weird brew. Sampled on draft at the brewpub. It has a crazy, nutty character like and imp nut brown. Weird. I repeat weird. Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Bomber, labeled as "Lompoc Special Draft". Pours a very dark cola brown with some crimson highlights. A frothy, bubbly, cream colored head leaves micro-spot lacing all over the glass. The nose reveals notes of burnt caramel, coffee, hazelnut, and a hint of molasses. There are some earthy hop notes that really balance things out. Flavors grow to include cocoa, mocha, and a little vanilla. The bitter coffee and earthy hops lend a lingering, staunch contrast to the caramel and molasses sweetness that shows up front. Medium-bodied, smooth, and easy drinking, this one sports a long, semi-dry finish. Falling somewhere between a brown ale and a porter, this is a tasty, easy going brew. Nice stuff. dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 4, 2009
I’m a little stuffed up as I rate this, but I’m very familiar with this brew as it is local and I’ve had it many times on tap. Pours a very dark brown with a fairly think tan head. Faint sweet malt in the aroma. Nice mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt with some smokiness and a nice hoppy finish. A good beer. I love this one at the pub on nitro! spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Clear dark brown with a thick one finger light tan head. Good amount of fine lacings. Aroma is molasses and some floral hops. Taste is sweet roasted malt with enough hop bitterness to make it enjoyable. There is a touch of smokiness in the dry bitter finish. The aftertaste is a bit espresso like. Good full body with just enough carbonation. Overall kind of like Impy Stout light. Very pleasant beer. bhensonb (15758) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Labeled as Lompoc Special Draft. 6.9%. Dark brown color with ruby notes. Thick light tan head. Aroma of strongly roasted caramel. Just a tinge of hoppiness. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Smooth malty roast, with a little smokiness, and some hop resin. It gets even better into the finish. Mouthsmacking.
