Bomber from Ross. Nose is roasted malt, light pine resin, and a hints of smoke and coffee. Pitch black with a medium, lightly lacing, beige head. Flavor is nicely bitter with some roasted coffee and a hint of smoke. Finishes with light bitterness and pepperiness. bhensonb (15993) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 1, 2012
Bomber from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours dark brown with a 3 finger creamy/foamy tan head. Aroma is roast malt, tingling hop and chocolate in that order. About med body. Flavor is bitter burnt malt, chocolate and floral/citrus/earthy hop in that order. It’s doing a bit of ring lacing, and the hop stands out firmly in the finish. Very nice. jcos (1855) - Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2012
