Bottle at Papsø. It pours hazy amber with a medium off white head. The aroma is toasted malt, dark fruit, bread and sweet dark caramel. The flavour is sweet malty and sweet caramelish with a subtle sourish touch. Bread and raisins. Long dark fruity finish. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Cletus. Pours a clear deep amber with a small off-white head. Caramel, overripe fruit, herbal hoppiness. Solid body, carbonation is a little low, herbal and almost medicinal, again overripe fruit. Not that hoppy - actually even sweet in the finish with a tart touch. 170611 douglas88 (9570) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Bomber. Pours a cloudy red color with some brown hues, a small white head. The aroma is sweet berries and some caramel. The flavor is very sweet strawberries, some toffee, caramel, more candies fruit. Very nice. Some heat but not overly strong. For the winter for sure. A bit of hops hiding in the finish with some fruit and bitterness. Throughout I get some sour characteristics, light but there. blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 25, 2011

Dark brown, off white head that laces very nicely. Aromas of brown sugar, roasty malts, caramel, hint of fruit. Medium bodied with a hint of malty sweetness, hint of smoke comes out a bit on the palate. Light bitterness.

Murky brown with no head. Good malty nose. Deep malt with some good burnt qualities. Very crisp on the tongue. Slight metal at the end. jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle. Pours muddy brown. Nose and taste of Belgian yeast, brown sugar, burnt orange, fruits and figs. More like a barleywine than an old ale. Very yeasty. Lots of fruit flavors. RyanMM (416) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Pours a fairly cloudy/opaque red-tinged amber. Medium head, fades to minimal lacing. Nose is full of ripe dark fruit, figs, dates, a bit vinous with caramel malt and slight roast notes. Mouthfeel is medium, moderate carbonation, somewhat sweet with some slight bitter hops notes on the finish. Nice beer overall. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bomber. Pours a dark muddy brown color with a small off white head that stays as a ring with light film islands. Nose is cherries with dates and earthy hops. Palate is firm and flat, light syrupy, hint of bitterness. Flavor is dates, cherries, light tartness. Loads of sediment in the glass bottom. tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2010
bomber. Pours an earthy brown with sediment visible. Nice bubbly tan / beige head rests on top. Aroma of molasses, cheese (like a brie), caramel, nutmeg. A taste reveals more of the cheese stink, which sharpens into a tartness on the finish. Some grape noticeable, and burnt sugar. This was very interesting to say the least, never quite tasted anything like it, though i am not very experienced with old ales. At 9% it’s really quite good, medium to full bodied and the booze masked. Those this wouldn’t be my favorite of McNeills that I’ve tried to far, I want to say these guys are making some pretty damn good brews and they’re on the cheaper end, a real value. Cheers.
