What an interesting beer. This one definitely has stages on the tongue - First a slightly fusely, yeasty thing that kinda approximates a quad, then some cherry, then some chocolate, and then a finish that blends it all together with some coffee flavors that add a nice bitterness to the end. The aroma's a bit too yeasty, and doesn't work very well with the flavor, but otherwise this is an enjoyable drink that was fun to take apart.

Bomber, "Best enjoyed by August 2014"

Hazed amber, soft tan head, stays nicely and leaves sheets of fine lacing.

Lite coffee in the nose with a muted fruit note.

Loaded with ripe fruit, muted chocolate and a hint of mint. Slightly sour in the finish adding to the complexity. Tasty and highly enjoyable.

22 ounce bottle, label says best enjoyed by August 2014. Served in a chalice, the beer pours a burnt orange/brown color with about a half inch light tan head. The head sticks around for a long time, and there's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, it smells mostly like cherries and dates (really just a lot of dark fruit in general), along with pears, cloves, and some tobacco. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like dark fruit (cherries, dates, plums), dark bread, caramel, candy sugar, pears, and peppery spice. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's coating and creamy with a good amount of soft carbonation. I think it's a good overall brew, I liked it. $6.99 a bottle, definitely worth trying at that price.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, cherries, hops, slight spice, and a hint of roasted malt. Fits the style of a Quadruple. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of cherries, alcohol, sweet malt, hint of hops, and a hint of spice. Overall, good appearance, aroma, feel, and blend, but the body is sadly lacking in strength.
