This beer is innovative and a nice take on the style with a new spin. Overall, this beer was extremely drinkable and was clean from start to finish. Not what you'd expect from drinking a Kolsch, but I give it to them for being innovative. Was refreshing to drink a stone beer without the typical stone hop profile that all of there beers seem to have. 4/5. Worth picking up for sure (a little pricey IMHO).

This is a really nice variation of beer. It's extremely well balanced and thoroughly drinkable. I had a feeling when I bought that it would not last a hour from when I got home from the store. I poured the whole bomber in a big cut glass stein, and I and sure I will have it finished in a few minutes.

It pours a deep, nearly opaque black/brown with nice head and loads of lacing. The aroma is sweet malty with some roasty smell and less finishing hops than I would like (but I am not complaining).

The taste is a wonderful mix of a slightly bitey kolsch, plus roast malts (the rye, I assume). There is not an overabundance of hoppy taste, just the right amount. In fact, this is one of the best balanced brews I have had in a while - a great achievement in making interesting beer that is still drinkable and refreshing. I think it would be great to suck down TWO bombers of this, but I won't be doing that.

The aftertaste is a nice lingering goodness. I highly recommend this great beer - get it while you can!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A) dark black with nice head
T) smoky, chocolate and fruit with rye, mild bitterness. Would pair well with beef or venison or as a dessert beer
S) smoky with hints of fruit
m) silklike smoothness, pleasantly carbonated
O) don't know if this will ever return due to spotlight series status, but if it does it could become my go to beer during its release
