Pours a three-fingered light brown head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Deep mahogany almost black color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Roasted chocolate nose. Flavor is roasted chocolate and balanced. $7.99 for a 22 oz bottle from Capital Convenience Concord, NH.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle purchased as a single from Julio's, Westboro, MA.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" tan head over the clear barely translucent dark reddish brown brew. Head is quickly down to an uneven layer of bubbles, with little to no lacing. Aroma is bitter, dark grains. Taste is sweet dark maltiness upfront, balanced in the middle, tends toward slight acrid bitterness on the close, some chocolate lingers in the aftertaste. Exactly what I expect from a Schwarzbier. Mouthfeel is smooth but a bit prickly with carbonation, and drinkability is very good. Great stuff.

4.1/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served in my new Warsteiner pilsener. Poured the color of cola with deep ruby red highlights exposed at the bottom of the glass; brew allowed absolutely no light penetration through the body. Dense khaki-colored head gradually lost cohesion and settled into a thin consistent surface skim. Some spotty lacing, but no legs on this one. Scent of cocoa and roasted malt. Taste similar to nose; however, roasted flavors more enhanced and chocolate character was more subdued; just the slightest suggestion of hops presented as a light, balanced bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel was somewhat thin-bodied with a kiss of effervescence to add some additional character. Sinfully drinkable concoction. Finished the entire bomber in under five minutes.

I was just complaining in a recent thread that I could'nt find any Pennichuck here in Keene. Milford is not that far but it's nice to see it here where I live! I found this bottle at Blueberry Fields in Keene. ($5.49 per bomber)

22 oz. bottle > SA 16 oz. glass (2)

This is a deep, nearly opaque dark brown color from some light around the edges. The carbonation is nice with a 2", tight, tan, sea-foam looking crown. slow retention and plenty of sticky lacing. a good 1/4" of cover remains through the duration.

The aroma is a dark chocolate and roasty malt with vanilla, oats and mild herbal hops. fresh wheat, maple candy and tangy molasses.

The flavor is much more roastie and coffee flavored than the aroma will lead you to believe. The roastie flavor hits first with burnt wheat and then a sweet currnet of malt chocolate and vanilla. A delightful, earthy and herbal hop flavor rides in easy and subtle right at the end.

Light ot medium feel, a thin but clean feeling body that has a smooth edge and crisp finish.

I had no problem with two of these.
