California

3.38/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pint at Beachwood BBQ for $6.50 tonight, surprised to see this beer in California under this serving style, great job once again Gabe on getting awesome beers in here, color is a very dark brown nearly black, 3/4 inch creamy slightly off white head that does not last long, some nice lacing though, aroma consists of coffee, smokiness, caramel, roasted malts, raisins, tobacco, toffee, leather, and very dark chocolate, flavor starts off with some roastiness but is a pretty light flavor, some burned malts in the middle, leathery finish with some dryness from strong coffee, does not change much as it warms, pretty light overall for the style, would expect a bigger roasty presence, dry, chewy, and slightly roasted mouthfeel, medium bodied, medium level of carbonation, taste did not linger long and it was thin at times, could drink another glass or two, light and cannot taste any alcohol, not a real flavorful beer though which is unusual for the style, drinkability is there but overall feel and taste is lacking a bit, not a bad beer, probably would not pay nine dollars a bottle like I have seen it at a few places, still a decent brew from the UK, might drink again, worth trying

Serving type: on-tap

Romania

3.49/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

During the pour it seemed like more of a stout, but this definetely tastes like a lager; it's lighter and clearer than expected;
Plus the mouthfeel makes that even clearer; not a big fruitiness, maybe some low dark fruit/berries; the malts are nicely roasted, giving off aromas of (very) dark bread, then going to coffee notes, lower strong cocoa powder also; decent nuttiness, also some dark chocolate sweetness, with faint candi sugar/licorice;
The bitterness isn't provided only by the roast, but also by some somewhat herbal hops, really nice and dry in the finish;
I'm conflicted, there are a lot of stout (going to porter) elements, with a lager body, but it fits nicely, it makes a "fresher", more sessionable dark beer
