4.5/5 rDev +18.4%
Well's Bombardier has a thick, creamy, cream-colored head, a semi-clear, slightly bubbly, deep copper or even ruby appearance, and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is beautiful- rich, sweet, toffee, mild coffee, citrus, sugar, and mild hop oil. Taste is similarly beautiful- toffee, hop oil, moderate and balancing bitterness, sugar, bread crust, and malt. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Well's Bombardier finishes semi-dry, delicious, and quite drinkable.

3.13/5 rDev -17.6%
A: Rich dark brown colored body with a good tint of red that looks like stained wood. Brilliant clarity and good carbonation. Creamy white head that leaves good lacing. A very good looking beer.
S: Really nothing on the nose except for this faint sickly acidic smell. A bit like what vomit smells like. It only comes across when I get really close to the beer so as long as I don't climb into my glass head-first it doesn't smell bad. I'm not really sure what that smell is.
T: Some light caramel and a bready aftertaste. A bit of fruit on the end as well, like eating a bit of fruitcake. It tastes pretty good.
M: The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium and is a bit sweet but not filling.
O: Overall it's a nice beer but not something I'd probably pick up again.

3.25/5 rDev -14.5%
Poured with a nice coppery color and an average just slightly tan head.
The aroma is sweet, roasted malts, some caramel and slighty spicy.
The taste starts with a medium hoppy bitterness, which is then joined by some roasted feel and caramel.
Finishes with a medium bitterness (slight spices also). Bittery, but then again not too bittery. OK, I guess.
