Bomber from Belmont Station. 2008 Series #4 Bottle #84. Pours dark amber/brown with a foamy 4-finger golden tan head. Smells like a strong Belgian ale. Caramel, dates, spice. Full bodied with chewy/foamy carbonation. Hints of date, cocoa. Flavor is kandi over caramel and yeast spice. Dark fruits. Medicinal note. Not a hint of alcohol. Ever changing. Very very good. Did I get cherry? Yea, sort of cherry pit. Did I mention this is really good ale? Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Sampled at the Noogfest High Five. Series #4 238. Nice brown pour with fair tan head. Sweet, alcohol, brown sugar. Tasty brew. But this label art is what truly shines on this one. Great label. bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Magnum, ’07. Thanks, CSchwaz! Pours cloudy mahogany with a thin off-white head. Brown sugar nose. Toffee, molasses and nuts taste. pantanap (3367) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2009
22oz bottle. once again from todd....i echo the same sentiments as andrew below. i thought i had entered this rating but apparently not.... sweet dark fruit, tofee, and vanilla flavors. carbonation was a little prickly but it maintained a smooth profile overall. a little bit of added cherry as well. didn’t really detect much of a hop presence. this might be up your alley if you’re into a sweet, malty, and strong american ale.

Sampled courtesy of a nice guy at the 2009 Stone Sour Fest. Looking over other ratings that would be Floydster, thanks man! Pours a nice brown with a thin light brown head. Very malty beer, perhaps even maltier compared to the days sour drinks. A real nice oakiness with a solid caramel driving force. Nice beer, I’m glad I finally figured out the correct name for the rating I had wrote down. wetherel (1893) - Cupertino, California, USA - AUG 21, 2009
