Pours almost crystal clear, golden in color with an off white to pale tan 2 finger head that leaves a bit of sticky lacing. A few carbonation bubbles rise through the center of the glass.
Sweet and spicy aroma. Cinnamon. Earthy/smokey Belgian funk. Potpourri. Tropical fruit--mango?
Dry at first, but after the swallow, sweet malts become more assertive. Smoked cherrywood is dominant and unique in my experience. A little boozy. The bitterness of the smoked malt in the follow through.
Medium to full in body. It might be considered creamy except for the bite of the carbonation and the alcohol. Slightly drying and warming as well.
A very complex brew with plenty of character to maintain one's interest. While the alcohol is not all that obtrusive, it soon becomes obvious that this is a sipping beer, and one that's quite appropriate for this snowy winter's night.

A cool story on the bottle,pours into a large tulip glass a clear medium golden with a amber tinge,man I love the color and the thick creamy shite head.After a few good swirls I pick up some overipe juicy citrus fruits along with some medicinal and spiced yeast notes.Yeasty and mildly phenolic with some clove spice standing out upfront on the palate,the some comes thru providing some meatiness and rich fruitiness,viney hops linger in the finish.This is a pretty complex and damn fine beer,RIP Matt.

In a snifter the beer was a perfectly clear gold color with just a tiny white head.
Aroma was smoky, fruity, and spicy. A little alcohol was noticeable.
Cherries in the taste. Smoke. A little peppery. A little funky. Still some alcohol.
Things combined well in this beer. Very pleasant.
A nice tribute.

Bomber bottle, bottled 12-20-13.
Pours pretty clear, orangy amber, off white moderate cap, leaves a tiny bubble sheen, thin collar and fine scattered lacing.
On the nose I'm getting some citrus, lite smoke, and some alcohol burn.
Full flavor, robust, complex,brash n bold. Not for newbies or the faint hearted. More lime and pineapple all over the palate. I get most of the smoke in the finish, buts its pretty faint. Mostly its more and more heavy citric fruit, phenols and a sort of burnt band aids under note.
A lot going on and I like it

3.69/5 rDev -1.9%
Appearance: low carbonation, minimal head, clear, caramel in color
Smell: cedar, hay, and pepper
Taste: apple, lemon, tangerine, hay, light cedar and smoke towards the end
Mouthfeel: sweet and funky, light body, moderate carbonation
Overall: Very clean, complex, and fruity tasting. A nice sipper. I wish the cherry wood smoke was a bit more prominent, but this is still very tasty. I would get this again.
