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.
