Poured the bomber (or at least part of it) into a 16 ounce snifter. Copper color with minimal head, though the little did stick around for awhile. Aromas were faint, which wasn't surprising upon tasting. Very mild flavor. Not overly spicy, though you could taste the undertones of them. Glad I tried it, but I prefer Pumking, something that is readily available in my area.
