2010 Batch. Chilled Bomber bought from University Market in Corvallis, OR. No date on the bottle.

A: Dark maroon/red pour from a bomber into a pint glass. White/Cream colored head that lasted a while, but nothing compared to a nitro. Lacing wasn't overly fine, leaving a ring towards the top of the glass and that's all.

S: Roasts, mild nuts and malts. Like with many winter beers I noticed a bit of spices. Not much hops to the nose, is there alcohol in this?

T: Slightly sweet roasted nuts, aftertaste is caramel and delicious. Spices that were noticed in the aroma aren't all the evident when drinking the beer, odd. Maybe time to recalibrate the old taster?

M: It's odd how every other sip yields a nip of alcohol, then it's gone in a flash. Quite a few bubbles can be felt on the tongue as well.

D: In the end this beer comes across as a sweeter one to me. I would only have one with a nicer dinner, but overall it wasn't heavy or overly alcoholic so it goes down really easily.

Overall Impression: Good beer, but nothing that will knock your socks off. Better seasonals out there, but enjoyable nonetheless.
