1 pt 6 fl oz bomber from liqiours inc poured into a pint glass.

A - pours a ruby red. Half finger head that moves to a thin lace.

S - nutmeg and gingerbread? Grains.

T - malt forward, bread and some mild spice. Toffee and vanilla notes. Picking up a hint of dark fruit as it warms.

M - carbonation is good, a smidge on the low side, prickly finish.

O - reminds me of Highland's Gaelic, with a touch of spice. Solid offering and is recommended.

(copied from blog - written March 16, 2013)

Appearance – Brown/amber color with a thin white head that mostly dissipates rather quickly but leaves a lingering foam.
Smell – Brown sugar and malty sweetness. Some sort of dark fruit — plum or cherry.
Taste – Nice solid malt back with slight spice taste.

Yet another tasty offering from BBC. I got this beer as a sample from my store and as we all know, there’s nothing better than free beer. Actually I stand corrected, there’s nothing better than free, GOOD beer! This beer is bready, sweet and leaves a bit of cinnamon spice on the tongue, but it isn’t overwhelmingly sweet as are the majority of winter warmers that I’ve tried. It’s just about Spring time but not quite and this is a pleasantly timed winter beer on a cool night — after a VERY hard day of work — while watching Louisville battle for their second championship win in a row!
