3.65/5 rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Deep golden-red with a billowy off-white head. The filtration on this beer is pretty exceptional--it's crystal clear.
S: Some sweet, raisin and fig aromas, albeit a little muted. Malts impart a 'not-quite-biscuit, not-quite-cookie' aroma.
T: The flavor is its saving grace, at least following the smell. While the nose seemed a little light, the flavor is more expressive: rum-raisin, modest spiciness, a little toffee.
M + D: Medium bodied, with carbonation that's a tad sharp. Nonetheless, it's a reasonably tasty beer, and it doesn't cost as much as many of the other bombers out there (I found this one for $4.99). Certainly worth checking out, if nothing else.

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

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
