a: have had this one around for 8 months or so, served in a unibroue branded tulip, deep, opaque mahogany brown in color, head light with only a thin ring retained

s: the nose features rich semisweet and milk chocolate, sweet toffee and brown sugar, lots of smooth roasts and a slight touch of char smoke, toasted dark bread, mild earthy hops, pleasantly complex - even some hints of bourbon and tobacco here

m: carbonation light-moderate, body moderate with a nice weight

t: lots of notched up brown ale flavors - rich chocolate coated toffee, dark fruit and brown sugars, sweet to begin, with drier, more intense roasts pushing in after the swallow as a chocolate sweetness continues to linger, a nice bitterness creeps slowly into the finish, earthy, with lots of lingering malt character, tobacco, the sugars are prominent but not tiring, alcohol presence light to moderate

o: a deal at $2.99 per bomber, rich and satisfying, more than would typically be expected for the price

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark brown with red overtones with a modest light beige head.

Smell: Mild brown sugar and bready yeast notes.

Taste: Mild roasted malt notes, brown sugar and toffee notes. There is also some mild hop bitterness.The beer finishes fairly dry with the mild hop nod faint brown sugar notes.

Mouth-feel: On the light side of medium-bodied with a modest level of carbonation.

Overall: This is a fine example of a beer that eliminates any excuse not to drink craft based on price. This is a beer that can proudly hold it's place among craft beers and is priced as cheap or cheaper than BMC. `$3 for a 22 oz Bomber, it's definitely one of the best bang for the bucks I've run across.

22oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a murky brown mahogany w/ a 1-finger khaki head, not much lacing.

Aroma is heavily malty up front. Toffee, caramel, rum-soaked fruit, and some aromatic hops in the background. Dominant aroma though is almost cloyingly sweet.

Taste is, not surprisingly, sweet and malty. Brown sugar, figs, booze, and a nice roasty quality. Bittering hops balance things out somewhat, but the fruity malt remains front and center.

Mouthfeel is thick and coating.

Overall this a slow sipper of a beer. Not sure I'd drink it again, even if I could.

Out of a bomber I picked up at Trader Joe’s in Santa Fe this beer was a very dark brown, almost black color but when it was held to sunlight it revelad ruby highlights. The head was a towering pile of tan foam. The retention was good and it left clumps of lacing. The aroma was of caramel, toffee, dark fruits and some chocolate. The flavors were good, I kept thinking “This beer was $3.99?” I tasted lots of caramel and toffee along with dates, figs, cocoa and behind that alcohol. The mouthfeel was smooth, the body medium/full and the carbonation appropriate. A total bargain for the quality.
