The word is getting around. I picked up this Bad Boys, Bad Boys, what ya gonna do bomber at a gas station. Imagine that. Let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a very heavy malt smell with molasses and some floral hopping. On the pour I get a bright orange bronze with a heavy thick head that stands firm and laces as it only very gradually recedes. On the taste this brew hits you first with the mouthfeel, as it is as thick as it smells. I think you could stand a spoon in it. The taste then hits, very balanced with a huge malt backbone and some tarty citrus underlying hop bitterness that stays steady throughout. Taste is very consistent throughout, sweet malts and bitter hoppiness with the finish being a little bit sweeter and with an earthy rye-like tone. This brew is nothing complex but hits right between the eyes. I will seek out again.
