Notes: If you spend any time in Sheridan County someone local will tell you a different story about “Bomber Mountain”. The flavors present in this medium bodied Irish Red Ale vary as widely as the tales, from biscuits and caramel, to cotton candy there is something for everyone to enjoy and more importantly to remember, about this sacred ground at 12,887ft above sea level.

Poured from a can into a nonic.

Pours mid-amber and clear with a nice head and extremely good lacing and webbing.

Caramel malts and toasted grains rather forward, with some solid but not too strong grassy and earthy hop.

Caramel malts forward, but zesty grain arrives in midstream and floral/grassy/earthy hops balance this quite well.

The brew is well carbonated and has a nice drying finish.

A decent representation of a frequently overlooked but very approachable style.

Drinking from a 12 ounce can describing the brew as essentially a grab bag of flavors. “From biscuits and caramel, to cotton candy…” I can see that, or taste that. I think the sweetness stands out the most, but there’s a decent red ale underneath. Pretty easy drinking, if a little thin for my taste. 2017/06/13

Having given a review of another , similar style (which was outstanding) earlier, I was wary to do this one on the same day. Curiosity got the better of me...

A: Golden amber, which is what the beer claims to be--not an Irish Red, as stated here. Head is a little short-lived and somewhat fizzy, but alright.

S + T: Soft, caramel malts... little else. The flavour is also largely toasted, somewhat bready malts. There is essentially no hop presence in this beer at all. The taste does appear to be one that grows on the drinker with a few sips, though.

M + D: Medium bodied, balanced well with a moderate carbonation. This beer is among those that I may not rave about incessantly, but rather, pick up from time to time because it's not terrible.

Black Tooth Bomber Mountain Amber, 4.6% ABV. Pours pale red, with a one finger off-white head. Nose is malty. Taste is slightly sweet, bready, with light bitterness. Decent mouthfeel, overall very good.

a hearty and layered amber ale, better than most with quite a bit more levels of flavor in it, enjoyed fresh from the tap. its a cool beer, with some flavorful european ale yeast in it, a quality we dont often see in amber ale at all, and i really like it being present. the beer seems somewhat drier than normal as a result, which i also really dig. its not hoppy at all, but has a caramelized fresh baked grain composition that has quite a sturdy body to it as well as a little sweetness in the middle, but its resolved in the finish, and there is a warming toasted vibe to this that makes it very autumnal to me. nutty even, more robust than a lot of these, but still kind of simple and to the point in its overall flavor, approachable and familiar, but worthy of my full attention at the same time. these guys are making some of the best beers in wyoming and still seem to be cruising well under the radar of the local beer nerds (if there are any). i have been impressed with almost everything from black tooth so far, and as much as amber ale isnt my thing, this is really well done and more substantial and clever than a lot of these ever are. well done here!

Clear copper colored pour with a small white head. Very minimal aroma of biscuit and caramel. Taste is malt forward with wet bread and caramel flavors dominating. Has a very light hop presence. Light bodied and mildly carbonated.

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a copper amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a caramel and molasses smell with some aromas of a bready nature. Along with these smells comes some light notes of earthy hops and a bit of grass as well.

Taste- The taste begins with a sweeter caramel and molasses taste mixed with some flavors of a bready and doughy nature. The douhginess fades all while the caramel gets a bit stronger and the bready takes on a slightly roasty taste. Toward the end some light hop flavors of an earthy nature comes to the tongue, leaving one with a sweet and lightly roasted/toasted taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average to slightly thicker side for a brew of only 4.6 % with a carbonation level that is a bit on the lower side. The feel is rather nice overall, as it provides a good base for the flavors to sit upon and be fully appreciated by the tongue, even in light of the lower abv.

Overall – A rather nice “more sessionable” amber ale at only 4.6 % abv. It has a lot of flavor all while maintaining a great drinkability.

by TheDoctor from Canada (QC)

Serving: On tap

Pours a clear amber-copper color with a skiff of white head that immediately disappears. Some swoops of lacing; little retention. Smells of light molasses, pepper, oats, crusty bread. The flavor is a little husky/grainy with some caramel, and an astringent finish to the point that there is almost a hint of tartness that kind of reminded me of ginger. Light-medium body, very active carbonation, dry finish, crisp and quenching.

Decent beer overall, quite drinkable. My only real gripe is that the astringency got to be a little much as I worked my way through it. Almost felt like drinking iced tea with lemon at times. I would probably have it again if it was available or free. Otherwise, nothing to write home about.
