Picked up a few bottles of this over at South Bay Drugs and Liquor.

The beer pours a dark amber color, almost the color of the water surrounding a shark attack victim, muddy and sanguine. The former reviewers were right, very little head on this. I only managed to get about 1/3 of an inch with an aggressive pour and it lasted very little.

The aroma is deep and floral with toasted and caramel malts, ripe dark fruits, and some citrus hops. Some cherry aromas from the alcohol come through in the tail of this beast. There are also a few notes of grapes and wild berries. A touch of grassy hops in the mixture.

Tastes Big. Lots of caramel and toast and quickly followed by plums, figs and raisins. I think that’s pretty much it; there also seems to be some earthy and bread crust flavors but this one is mostly all about the dark fruits, caramel and toast. I’m starting to pick up some brown sugar as well.

Feels thick and this one doesn’t hide its big body. I think one bomber is enough for me.

Not a bad beer at all, but not something I could drink too often.

A: Pours a clean amber with strawberry highlites. Head is much thinner that I would have expected, leaving only a lame light tan film across the top of the glass.

S: Toaster crumbs, grapefruit, Santa Rosa plums, caramel and tap water.

T: Begins with gentle rounded caramel and sharp red apple. Bitterness comes early but not overly aggressive. Good amount of mineral flavor is accompanied by balanced citrus and pine hops. After the swallow, all the flavors intensify with breadiness and mineral flavors coming on strongest. Finishes bitter, alcoholic with lingering apple.

M: Medium body but much too thin.

D: Wow. This beer wasn’t a total let down but I certainly wasn’t impressed. Much too thin for me.
