  • Poured opaque (although I wasn't in the greatest lighting) with a solid tan, inch thick foam from an aggressive pour. Retention is good leaving behind some thick, sticky foam.

    Aroma is definite wheat with some good, big malts to back it up. Roasted, toffee, and even burnt molasses come through. Dark fruits stimulate the nostrils: figs and prunes.

    Taste is very sweet. A little sweeter than expected. Dark malt drowns out the wheat flavor but it still comes through along with roasted and burnt malts. The molasses and caramel are probably the sweetness culprits. No real hop bitterness but I think it could use a little more for balance. Dark fruits are hidden but lend a nice layer to the beer.

    A medium bodied beer with about the same carbonation. The malts seem to give off a syrupy texture at times. Sweetness fades to a dry mouth.

    Appreciative of this interesting mixture of light and dark. Overall I think they pulled it together quite well, although he sweetness does make it difficult to have more than the one bomber by myself. :) Enjoy!
