Picked up a bomber from Total Wine at the end of March for $1.99.

Beer was a bit of a gusher upon opening. When things settled down it poured dark brown with a tan head that dissipated quickly.

Not a whole lot going on with the nose. Hints of roasted malts and lactic sweetness are present.

Taste is chocolate roasted malts with a nice bitter hop finish.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with no redeeming smoothness.

Overall a pleasant brew but nothing overly exciting.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a wine glass.

A - Deep ruby color almost brown, couldn't see through it. Highly carbonated. One finger of brown head that disappeared almost immediately.

S - Roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, mild hint of coffee.

T - Similar to the nose but slightly magnified. Malt up front mild coffee in the middle and the chocolate malt at the end. Slight hop bitterness at the end once the beer has warmed up a bit.

M - This one is very carbonated(almost over carbonated) and fairly light.

O - I found myself drinking this one very quickly due to the extreme drink-ability however it isn't really impressing me a whole lot. Decent beer and for $1.99 for a bomber I wont pass it up but it didn't do much for me. Let this warm up a bit if you wanna notice any of the hops.

Pours a fizzy large bubbled 1 finger head that fades pretty quickly, no lacing, something that I expect to see on a 10% abv beer, not one that is half that, super dark brown colored beer, almost black, with faint hints of light sneaking through.

Nose has plenty of dark malts, creamy chocolate, milk chocolate, oats, caramel, black malts but not roasty or charred, lactose too I think, somewhat like a milk chocolate stout, but not much else. As it warms it becomes mostly luscious chocolate and even vanilla.

Taste starts with slightly metallic flavor, then into the dark malts, light bitter acrid black malt with little tannin, but not roasty or burnt. Again the light lactose milky flavor brings milk chocolate, as well as light biscuit for an almost oreo cookie like without the creme filling. Earthy spicy grassy hops cut in quite a bit, fairly bitter as the hops jump in and stump me (forgive the pun). Finish is drier, a little creamy still, light lingering metallic slightly acrid black malt, hint milk chocolate, and long lingering plenty of earthy spicy hops.

Mouth is med bodied, a nice creamy milky feel, decent carbonation.

Overall not bad, but not great. Nice creamy milk stout like flavors, nice chocolate, but the light metallic acric flavor doesn't come across nicely, and the hops, while a nice hop profile, don't seem to blend too well with the beer as it's more of a milk stout. If they had beefed up the overall malt bill and roasted variety malts a bit then the hops would blend nicely.
