Bomber to Sam Smith nonic - first time trying this one, I always seem to miss it every release.
A: Dark mahogany body, uber-clear. Lots of off-white head and tons of lace, very attractive.
S: Tons of malt; bready, nutty, a little toasty, somewhat sweet. Fruity yeast esters, suggestions of honey in the layers of dark crystal malt. Buried under there is some toffee, with hints of herbal hops though these are really subdued.
T: Malty and bready, slightly toasted crystal malt...very nutty too, with a dusting of dry partially-sweetened cocoa. A bit fruity too with a faint alcohol presence. Some dark fruit peeks through as well...just malty as all get out.
MF: Creamy, sweeter full body.
O: Imperial Brown Ale maybe? Its a malt-lovers dream, and very well crafted. A bomber of this was a little much for my palate, personally, but I can respect this brew.
