Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a reddish brown with a light mocha head. Nose of ripe fruit. Full body. Flavor reminds me of a quad with a lot of fruit. Finishes with some sweetness and citrus and floral hops. Very nice. miyauchi38 (1117) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2016

bomber - Pours amber with a two finger head. It smells of smoked and caramel malt. The flavor is sweet with a pleasant smokiness, more smoke than most Scotch ales I’ve had, caramel, and maybe some dark fruit. It’s full bodied and very good.

Bomber from Hayduke that we had via facebook chat. A big beige head over a dark red brown beer. My bottle was opened quite cold. Minimal aroma. Flavor is full of caramel malts and dark fruit such as raisins. Ron pointed out some quad notes and they are indeed there. And it is becoming clear that this is not so much a Scotch Ale as it is a Quad. A tasty one, too. Travlr (26406) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber color, medium white head. Aroma of nutty caramel and light toast. taste has a bit of stone fruit on a caramel background. Nice. pinkzambia (2111) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle: murky reddish brown with a tan steady head. Aroma of brown sugar, cinnamon, musty leather. Flavors of malts, and kind of a tangy zing. Watery finish with a weird film. Meh. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very hazy brown color with an extremely thick light tan head on there. Nose is pretty complex, actually, and has some caramel, toast, and dark candied fruits in there. Taste has some sour fruit elements to it, and actually ends up feeling and tasting much more like a quad than a scotch ale. Really interesting...
