That's an outstanding looking brew - steady head, chunky like snowfall on fence posts from the beginning, but it melts down a bit to only ring the glass. Like deep brown bricks, with hints of orange around the edges - strong looking beer.
The smell is disappointing at best - a puzzling combination of chalk, tube sock, and a hint of toasted malt.
Unique malt foundation - not sweet, just solid, with heavy hops to balance it out. Grassy, with a bit of cinnamon and other spice.
Good carbonation, it's just unfortunate that what's carbonated isn't that good.
Really didn't enjoy this one - just not my kind of beer.

22 oz. bomber,
A: Pours a deep red with a medium white head, good lace.
S: Cracked wheat and bread, pumpernickel, roast, and toast.
T: Lots of crystal malt, toast. Piney hop finish, definitely an Americanized big altbier, tastes like an Imperial Red almost. A bit unpleasantly bitter at the end.
M: Medium-bodied, but a chalky finish, has a bit of a carbonic acid feel which I not a huge fan of.
D: It's OK, very inexpensive for the bomber ($3.50) which helps, just wish there was something more to it.
