3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber with a slight haze, pillowy tan head and minimal lace. Light caramel malt aroma with a tinge of nuttiness and earth. Flavors are more pronounced with a deep almost syrupy maltiness kept honest with the earthy hop bitterness. Medium body, minimal carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel and a lingering maltiness in the finish.

This brewery recently opened in Los Angeles and it’s claim to fame is that most all of it’s beers are naturally cast carbonated.
Beer as it was made before nitrogen infusion.

(En fût sur place): Des notes de raisins bleus et de fumée modeste se joignent au sucre brun caramélisé. Mince et hautement buvable pour sa grosseur.

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours brown with a creamy beige head. Malty aroma. Med +body. Flavor is mostly malt - about as much hop as an English bitter. Nice try given the 4.3%, but it would be better with more alcohol.

On cask @ MacLeod. Very dark brown pour with a nice khaki head. Roasted malts and plenty of chocolate. Good toasty, nutty malts, and a bit of floral hops. Slightly bitter and grassy on the finish. Slight coffee grounds, some coconut, and plenty of roasted malts. Really nice cocoa powder and dark fruits as well. Nice stuff.

Bomber, pours dark brown, hint of red in the right light. Toasty malts on be nose, some caramel, very rich. Taste has nice malt complexity and finishes on a nice dry note that cleans up he initial sweetness. Not a style I am super familiar with but I enjoyed drinking this one for sure.
