bomber into a tulip glass.
a - pours a deep, transparent copper color and gave me a dense, rocky, two finger, beige head. foam takes its time calming but eventually settles to a thin cap and leaves thick chunks of lacing in the glass.
s - grassy and floral hops, faint grapefruit citrus, toffee.
t - big toffee malt character followed up with big hop character. on the sweeter side but has ample hop bitterness to balance that out. i'm picking up notes of grapefruit, wintergreen or something else mildly minty, and a little wood on the back end. bitterness comes in the form of a pine resin beatdown to the middle and back of the tongue that hurts for a while but in a good way. alcohol content is barely noticeable (in the taste at least).
m - full bodied with the right amount of carbonation. finer co2 profile. very slick from the hop oils but also very smooth. very slight alcohol warming.
o - solid in every way and quite enjoyable. in fact, i think i prefer this over any of the individual beers that go into it. worth seeking out imo.

Appearance - The beer was a dark copper color with a fluffy off-white head crowning the snifter. Lacing followed the sides of the glass.
Smell - The malts dominated the smell with notes of fresh bread and banana hovering in the background.
Taste - On the initiate taste, the bitterness of chocolate and alcohol strikes me. Caramel makes a brief appearance. Oaky notes and vanilla float in toward the back, leaving a dry woody impression.
Mouthfeel -Carbonation is modest with few warming qualities despite the ABV. Clearly the alcohol is well masked.
Overall - I aged this one for quite a while and must state that I am not sure the waiting was worth it.
