Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours clear dark copper with a creamy yellow beige head. Aroma seems spicy cinnamon. Med body or better. Flavor is somewhat toasted malt, but there’s a peppery spiciness, and cinnamon is discernible. Could be a little darkish fruit. It’s pretty drinkable, but unusual.
