2.74/5  rDev -24.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: a solid brown color that hints towards black depending on the light. a finger of a white head that leaves behind a bit of a lacing. almost opaque but lets just a little bit of light through.

Smell: sweet. maybe some brown sugar, breadiness, chocolate and earthiness.

Taste: opens up with chocolate tending towards roasty malts. overtaking by a huge earthiness, mixing with bread. very weird balance too it, which i have a difficulty explaining.

Mouthfeel: sweet and fairly light for the style, completely missing the lager cleanness.

Overall: i found this beer way too muddled between flavors. the chocolate and earthiness just seem out of place and don't balance very well.

Serving type: on-tap

3.6/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bomber, served in a Tyranena snifter

A - pours a dark copper, clear, fades to zero head

S - biscuit and caramel, a bit of subdued hops follow

T - sweet, but not overly so, caramel up front, hops are more present here than in the nose

M - rather thin, surprising for 9.0% abv, but smooth

O - good value, certainly a solid dopplebock, nothing earth-shattering. Won't necessarily seek it out, but would happily have it again

Serving type: bottle
