this beer pours a hazy reddish brown color with an off white head that fades to a sheet of lace leaving rings around the glass. the aroma brings loads of roasted malt and a bit of fruit at the back, maybe some yeast esters. the taste doesn't disappoint with the sweet nearly sticky maltiness, and the fruity flavors this is a pretty flavorful beer, the alcohol and astringency at the end are there, but not bad for nearly nine percent. great carbonation, thanks to Sam the Beer Man, with their nice five beer growler line up.
Serving type: growler

Appearance: Copper to dark amber in color, pours with medium low tan head, fades quickly with just some around edges of glass, very clear
Aroma: Malty sweet aroma, toffee, caramel, some bread notes, alcohol
Flavor: Malty sweet in beginning, bread, some light dark fruits, toffee, medium bitterness that doesn't linger, some alcohol warmth
Mouthfeel: medium full body, medium carbonation,
Overall: Malty sweet bread and toffee taste and aroma that balances with an appropriate bitterness. Good version of strong ale and price point was good. A bit boozy, will have again.

Really nice strong ale from Lagunitas. The price point for a bomber is lowww, in the $5 range. That said, it is a really smooth, strong, beer. Perfect for a cold night.
Aroma - hmm. Malty, toffee, caramel, grains grains grains.
Taste - Sweet, molasses, brown sugar, bready, sweeet again.
Mouthfeel - well carbonated, sticky, thick, but not overly so.
Again, a high quality beer, nothing to sniff at, and for the price, at the top of it's range. Bravo.
