Thank to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark reddish-brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of toffee and dark fruit with some bread notes and a little bit of alcohol. The flavor is similar. I get some chocolate, toffee and caramel notes as well as some dark fruit - mainly cherries and dates. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice brown ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear ruby red hued highlights and amber body as well as tan head. The aroma is rich and malty and roasty all at the same time with a pleasing hoppy sting and notes of burnt toast coming forward near the end of the draw. The taste has a moment of caramel malts before roasty malts and slight molasses sweetness well up to the surface. There are also glimpses of spicy hops here and there to add additional character and interest to this smooth rich yummy brown.
