4.34/5  rDev +8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served a black colored brew with a tiny tan head. The head fades almost instantly leaving a light level of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell- The aroma is strongest of a roasted coffee aroma. Mixed with this is a nice dark chocolate/cocoa smell. A light sweet vanilla and caramel smell are mixed with these roasted and dark aromas balancing them nicely and creating a great smell.

Taste – The taste begins with some slightly sweeter chocolate and roasted malt notes up front. As the flavors advance further a bit of caramel and some smoky and coffee flavors come to the tongue. These flavors last to the end of the taste where the coffee flavors get stronger and espresso like with the brew also bittering more in nature. These are accompanied by an emergence of some earthy hop flavors. When mixed with the bitter coffee, and roasted malts it creates a very pleasing slightly bitter flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The chewier body is fantastic for the roasted and darker flavors of the beer giving is a big and thick feel on the tongue; well matching the coffee and chocolate flavors of the brew.

Overall- This was one tasty brew. It had the right level of bitter hop and sweetness to complement the darker and roastier chocolate and coffee/espresso flavors of the brew. Well done.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Amazing in its opacity, pitch black with no light getting through the murk, capped by a rich cafe latte-colored head. Nose features some very pleasing malt acrobatics, prunes, raisins, dark roast coffee, a whiff of caramel, and some earthy herbal hops. Palate includes all these elements plus some dry chocolate flakes and light ash for good measure, starts sweet and roasty, almost stout-like before going very crisp and dry for the finish, as per the style. Nice creamy mouthfeel adds to the stout-like vibe, as does the low key carbonation. Some noble-type hops add a little pepper and vanilla perhaps. Great stuff and manages to deliver more robust flavors than maybe one would expect from a lager of this ilk. Is is TOO sweet? Perhaps. Here's where I channel my Micheal Jackson-like disregard for uber-rigid style guidelines in favor of just enjoying the show.
