22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours hazy very dark reddish brown color with a small light khaki head with decent retention, that reduces to a small lace cap. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, dark bread, molasses, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and unique Dubbel style. All around great balance and complexity of malt and yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours ruddy amber with a slight head. Aromas of banana, clove and yeast/spice. Full bodied. Flavor is spicy roast caramel. Smooth. Still think theres underlying banana and clove. Its pretty balanced, and theres something keeping all the malt from being very sweet. Its really tasty. Maybe its complicated. Trust me that its delicious, even if words fail me.

Bomber; pours dark brown and slightly muddy with creamy white head fading almost instantly; banana and dark candy syrup with a little spicy yeast and chocolate; creamy mouthfeel with some sharpness and spicy phenols; a mix of figs, chocolate and banana that becomes more even as it warms and breathes; brown sugar and banana phenols mixed with some spice that mildly burns the nose hairs; drinks smooth with a lingering layer of sticky figs and stale grass

Bottle. Really quite impressive -- and the second brew Ive had from these folks that I really liked. Pours deep reddish brown, with a mid-size head. Like liquified banana bread. Banana, clove, and a touch of cinnamon over dark fruits and some brown sugar. Dries out just a little on the back end. Very tasty, and tastes like it has some German influence -- the banana note is quite heavy.
