Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong toffee, caramel and nut notes. The flavor is a bit different. I get some strong caramel, light smoke, maple, brown sugar and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. SpringsLicker (3616) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear dark brown pour with a minimal tan head.
Aroma of caramel, brown sugar and a bit of alcohol.
The flavor is sweet, no hop flavors, all caramel and brown sugar that was hinted to in the aroma.
I was expecting more perhaps, but no flaws, no excitement either. ljthiessen (1324) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle, courtesy of cards04. Sweet aromas of caramel, grains, light fruit and sugar. Taste is sweet caramel, molasses, oak. Oily texture. Bacterial (2986) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bomber on sale for $6, which turns out to be a decent deal. Hazy light brown pour with some white head. Brown sugar and slight rum nose. Taste is pretty nice, though the bitterness from the hops kind of over shadows the subtle rum / molasses / sugar / barrel character. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at Widmer, pours a hazy amber with a small beige head. Aroma reveals rum barrels upfront, with notes of dried dark fruit (raisins) and caramel. Flavour brings out a rum bomb, with very far back secondary notes of raisins and other dried fruit. Boozy, but well-balanced and drinkable in small amounts. Decent beer.

On tapas Dexter's pub. Pours brownish with thin white head. Aroma of vanilla, rum, and molasses. Taste is mostly barrel. Perhaps overpowered by the barrels.

Bomber from Blue Dog. Pours hazy ruby through direct light and with translucent dark brown edges through indirect light, with a finger of frothy off-white head. Nose is malt, molasses, hops, mild fusels, brown sugar, and some earthy butyric acid notes. Tastes hoppy, earthy, with molasses, brown sugar, fusels, and an off-putting finish. Gets a bit more discombobulated as it warms, with the palm sugar and molasses getting more prominent, but this one never gets sweet, and stays hot and rummy throughout. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 20, 2012
22oz bottle. Small beige head atop clear copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, rum, molasses, some caramel, orange. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, orange, some molasses, rum, earthy, alcohol. Medium body, some stickiness. GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Pours a deep ruby color, with a thin beige head. Molasses comes through in the taste, with a slight taste of bread. vamp666 (15) - - AUG 30, 2013
Great tasting Ale. Dose not have strong after taste. I think this would go great with a steak. Good times!
