Poured bomber into ~12 oz. Gouden Carolus goblet, which is a very thin glass. And despite the fact, this troll (the label is a troll) held its head well -- nearly a finger! Looks coppery, slight golden.
Aroma is dandelion, honeydew, melony, pretty piney, perfumey.
Broo Doo hits you with a strong bitter, dandelion front. As bitter hops chug along, signs of manageable spiced alcohol make their way to the party. Very floral, some apple to it. Greetings, pears.
Let this one warm up a little, though, before you make your final decision, because the malt starts to come out when you do. And a balance becomes more noticeable, giving imbibers the "best malt money can buy," as advertised on the label, more credibility.
Mouthfeel is OK. A little thicker than I'd like it to be but does eventually thin out. Pretty strong carbonation, I'd say -- prickly well into the second ~8oz. pour from the 22 oz. bomber into the ~12oz. goblet.
Overall, this beer is worthy. Not as delightful as Dreadnaught or Arctic Panzer, despite the "wet" hop, but very worthy for the hopheads, nevertheless. Whatever a harvest ale is supposed to be, I'd rally behind the idea of this being one of the standards.
Take your time on it; don't feel the need for it to be sessionable. And remember, nothing beats the neon colored, troll in a sailors uniform -- or pajamas with a loose neck tie -- label.
