bomber into tulip. no bottled on date.

A: really deep caramel color. looks opaque brown at first, but it is not. great clarity. off-white head with good retention. thick lacing.

S: a mild chocolate and even more roast. virtually no hop aroma. smells dry as more and more roast comes into play.

T: chocolate and dry roast similar to the nose, however I am getting the faintest acrid smoke flavor as it warms. undetectable at first, but opens up a little with warmth. I would say chocolate is the biggest presence here. maybe a little vanilla? slightly sweet finish, but mostly dry.

M: moderate to low carb. medium body.

D: not a bad brew, but not a wee heavy to me at all. too roasty, chocolately, and not enough malt complexity to be to style for the wee heavy. they have a great base going here, just need to add some more unfermentables and build more caramel/body. imo of course.

This has a lot of manly body as it poured a frothy, foamy head that had real retention. The mahogany coloring was deep and rich.

The nose was high in barley and bran with a grainy backbone. The interesting thing was the soft roasted coffee tones I detected.

If the coffee aroma was interesting the taste was truly surprising. There's a lot of roasted grains barley malt and some dry maple sweetness. The flavors are not immense but it has good diversity.

There's a higher than moderate carbonation but it's not abrasive, I just think it should have more thickness as a wee-heavy.
