3.75/5 rDev -11.1%
A - pours a very unique yeast yellow brown body. Dark burgundy in the glass but murky sulphuric yellow in the pour. Thick sulphur yellow head that died a bit quickly. 4.5/5
S - rich complex. Fig and plum. With a hint of banana bread and sour apple. 5/5
T - sour. Chemical. Tiny hints and pecks of complex bready and ester notes are muffled by the hazmat tastes.3/5
M - too loose. Watery. As evidenced by the lack of lacing 3.5/5
O - wonderfully unique appearance and world class aroma ultimately fall short with the overly caustic tastes 3/5

Bomber poured into a pint glass.
Pours a very dark brown. Not much head, and it doesnt stay for long.
Smells is booze at first. Definite notes of barrel aging as well. Fades into some dark fruit.
Booze, wood, and dark fruits, like raisins, and maybe even some dark berries. Almost a sweetness to it, but cut by booze. Nice warming sensation on the way down, as well as a bit of a spicey, peppery finish.
Mouthfeel is thick and creamy.
Good beer. The ABV definitely shines through. Good with the pork tenderloin I'm having tonight too.

4/5 rDev -5.2%
A: Dark brown with an amber tinge of about 1 cm only when held to the light, lots of gunky brownish grey sediment, on cap upon opening, and in chunks on the bottom of the glass. A finger of deep beige head.
S: Scotch whiskey, butterscotch, caramel, woody oak quality, ice cream, brown sugar, pecan pralines. Maple syrup.
T: Caramel, maple syrup, whiskey, moderate sweetness that seems to have mellowed out leaving a relatively dry finish. Praline, ice cream, big woody oak quality also comes in.
M: Medium thick chewy body, medium low carbonation. Dry woody finish.
O: Excellent, well done brew. Bought in in Pensacola, FL and it was the last bottle in the store. Wasn’t able to find it in Alabama or even in Birmingham, so I’m glad I grabbed it. Well done brew. Not sure if I’ll ever see it again. Drank Aug 1st, 2014 in Decateur, AL.

Poured into a pint glass. Thanks for sharing, CorgiDad.
A: Dark brown with a tan one finger head that dissipates fast. Light lacing.
S: Sweet, bourbon-y with molasses, brown sugar and chocolate malts.
T: Knocked me out of my tree. Easily, the best thing we had at our tasting. Follows nose with a bourbon kick and cane sugar. Hearty, robust. Unputdownable. And yes, the alcohol is well hidden, as it pounded me later.
M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation.
O: A sublime sipper from a stellar brewery. Recommended. I liked it as much as the Illudium.
