Poured from bomber (2011) to pint glass the beer pours an opaque amber/mahogany color with a tremendous 2.5 finger khaki colored head with nice retention and tons of gobs of lacing. Looks sticky and big. The nose is malty sweet upfront with a definitive caramel malt character. Hints of earthy hops and heat and perhaps even a touch of raisin, though mostly malt. The flavor is rich and bold with the caramel malt sweetness found in the tongue being most prominent. The earthy hop characted provides enough bitterness and flavor to provide a very balanced beer. Very creamy and smooth throughout the beer finishes sticky with a lingering mild bitterness and pleasant sweetness. Very good. Though the alcohol was present in the nose, it's indiscernible in the flavor. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, very drinkable for such a big beer. This is fantastic, a treat, highly recommended.
