bomber poured into 16 oz snifter

A- Deep, deep brown with thin tan head, leave good lacing
S- Mid size roasted malt smell
T- Simple, but well done layer of roasted malt... not overly bitter or too sweet. Leans a bit to the sweet side, but well balanced.
M- Medium and easy to drink

O- Nice brown ale

Sweet crystal malts

bakers chocolate

nutty

slightly tangy acid note very very slight almost vanishing

toffee

this forms head very easily you need to careful when pouring this. It is very unique amongst brown ales.

Hops are present but blend with the malt very well

floral qualities

approaching boozy

well carbonated but not ridiculously

Appearance is dark brown with a great head and impressive look. Smell is, to me, the weakest aspect of this beer. Smells of caramel, hops, and light floral notes. The taste is quite nutty and warming, with a pleasant aftertaste. Overall, a very solid beer from one of my favorite breweries.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: poured into a mug to a deep brown with a finger and a half of dense and soapy cream colored head
S: smells of roasted malt and slight hop bitterness with some notes of coffee
T: taste is toasted malt, coffee, faint caramel sweetness, light chocolate, and some hop bitterness to balance. Swallow brings more coffee, roasted malt, and hop bitterness
M: this beer is on the lighter side of medium with light carbonation and a slightly drying mouthfeel
O: Pretty solid beer with good flavors and plenty of hops to balance things out. I might pick up another bottle and see how it does after six months.
