Enjoyed a bomber (22 oz) at Union Jack Pub and Restaurant in historic downtown Winchester. Thank goodness our founding fathers didn't have this or we'd never have chased those pesky Redcoats away. Back to the matters at hand, though. I did, however opt out on the 100 oz bottle that our waiter offered with much despair, and settled for the bomber and a pint glass. Had I know beforehand my brother-in-law was buying, however, I may have delved into that 2 foot tall bottle. Anyway, the beer delivered the hoppiness that I was accustomed to from a Stone Ale and had some faint fruit hints with little attention drawn to the alcohol. Poured a nice brown with a reasonable finger and one half of head. It tasted a tad heavy but not so much as to make it akin to a stout. A very drinkable beer but had I ordered one more bomber I would have surely tripped on the cobblestone and felt drinkers remorse in the morn. I would have to say it was much lighter than the shepherd's pie that accompanied it.
