Bomber. Bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a small dissipating off-white head; collapses into a soapy collar. Aroma is strong in coriander; caramel less so. Fruit (plums) and Belgian funk come out after it warms up. Taste is sweet and meaty with a little bitterness around the edges. Has a nice Belgian taste to it but the body could be bigger. sgallant (49) - USA - AUG 14, 2011
Smells and tastes like malt and coriander. I’m not a big fan but it does taste like Seattle. Malty and monotone. amg800 (237) - Ada, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2011

Dark, clear, reddish=brown with a small tan head. Aroma sweet and strong of caramel, banana, vanilla, molasses and figs. The taste is thankfully a bit milder than the aroma, but it seems like it’s just a watered down shadow. The flavor is ok though. The alcohol is pretty well blended and the beer tastes much more balanced than expected, finishing with a nice mild bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth. michaelinwa (656) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Very simple, not complex, nothing at all stands out for this beer. Balanced but in a very boring way. I cannot recommend this beer. CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Bomber. Pours a dark chestnut color with a thin layer of tan head. The aroma is mostly caramelized sugars along with some banana bread and cloves notes. The flavor blends candi sugars, cloves and dried figs with a little bit of banana, prunes and caramel malt in the background. The body is moderately carbonated with a dry, malty finish and slightly chalky clove aftertaste. Not bad as a dessert beer although a little goes a long way. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Sampled on 6/2/2011. This American Strong Ale pours a slightly cloudy amber brown color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, caramel and slightly spicy. A medium bodied American Strong Ale. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. Some candi sugar, molasses and tobacco flavors as well. The hops are earthy and floral. Decent carbonation. Nice balance. A touch on the sweet side as the candi sugar and molasses flavor come out more as the beer warms. Nice sipping beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Brown, not much head. Light aroma of fig. All malt - all slightly toasted malt with the feel a bit chalky. Ok, but not really my style either.
