Pours a Amber honey color. You can really smell the smoke on this one with a bit of char to boot. Three years have really mellowed the smoke element, however I cant imagine what this would be like fresh. Really nice and rare. You do not see this everyday.

McNeillR (2275) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Thick auburn golden, decent flecks of sediment throughout and greasy lacing from a ringed head. Nose is rich sweetness, soft syruppy. Initial taste is rich cheap honey, greasy smoke and this leads to a heavy mouthfeel. Finishes strongly, ABV really noticeable and lingers fairly stringently sweet.

patrick767 (4038) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2016
bottle - Pours dark amber with a small tan head. It has a very smoky aroma with malt and strong oak. It tastes of very smoky, sweet malt with heavy oak flavor and big hops bitterness. The flavor is aggressive in pretty much every way. Three years of aging doesnt seem to have changed that aspect. The full bodied brew has a long, bitter, smoky finish.

_angst_ (4683) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2016
Bomber bought @ Systembolaget about 3 years ago. Pours hazy reddish brown with a small offwhite head that leaves some spotty sticky trace on the glass. Smell is malty and smokey with caramel, toffee, sweet dark bread, burnt wood, smoked charcuteries, minerals and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty, herbal, earthy and smokey. Mouthfeel is soft, viscous, round, tiny astringent, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and and bitter with caramel, toffee, smoked charcuteries, burnt wood, moist soil, moist grass, resin and hints of alcohol. Bitter but very smooth smoked US barley wine. Quite like this...
