4.35/5  rDev +30.6%

From the bomber. Sampled on July 16, 2012. It pours dark brown with ruby red hues when held to the light and a tremendous, lingering beige head. I liked looking at it.

The aroma has some nutty character but those are more subdued by the sweet dark malts, toffee, and licorice esters that accompany it. The 9.5% ABV is not noticeable on the nose.

The body is medium to bold. The taste begins quite sweet thanks to the dark malts, yeast, toffee, and cinnamon characters followed by a notable bitterness at the end. Each sip is about the same with the sweetness growing to a degree.

All told this is a highly enjoyable nut brown and one of the better ones I have had.

Pours a two finger dark cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace, some yeast left in bottle. Hazy mahogany color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light roasted coffee nose and flavor is roasted coffee. Higher ABV totally hidden, is this really 9.5% ?? $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Market Basket Concord, NH.

Pours a slightly hazy medium brown with a reddish orange tinge and a smallish white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is very malty with lots of caramel, chocolate, brown sugar and a hint of coffee. A slight bit of earthy hops provide a bit of balance, but this one is mostly malt. Taste of caramel and brown sugar with a hint of vanilla, coffee and chocolate. There a tinge of earth and a hint of ethanol, but this one comes off a bit on the sweet side. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet almost sugary mouthfeel. Flavorful beer, but like I said its a bit sweet. It needs more hops, or more bubbles, or more attenuation to be a great beer.
On a side note, this beer and the other beers sold under this label can't be more than 6.5% abv. There is no reason for them to be priced at 9 dollars a bottle when bought from the source.
