I just picked up this bomber today since it was a new arrival to the area.

A - Pours a dark brownish garnet colored body that has a nice glow to it when held up to the light. Thick looking beige head that is made of tight bubbles. Looks like the head is a solid almost. Good retention.

S - Smoky malt comes right at my nose. Toasted rye bread. Smoked meats. Hmmm...

T - Much lighter smoke than in the nose. Hits up front and is subtle and not overpowering. The rest of the beer, however, is also fairly light in the taste department in my opinion. Light raisin and prune. Some breadiness in the malt profile. Little to no aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied and very smooth.

D - Goes down fairly easy, but I wish that this bottle was a 12oz rather than a bomber. Not a bad beer really, just not packed with quite enough flavor for me.
