22 oz bomber served chilled in a pint glass.
Appearance: Dark reddish orange, almost brown. Frothy yellowed head that dissipated quickly, but left loose nets of lacing.
Smell: Caramel and toasted bready malts with hints of prune and peach. Peppery and herby hops.
Taste: Sweet maltiness abounds. Caramel and earthy roasted malts. Mild taste of alcohol throughout. The finish of bitter grassy hops integrated pretty well with the malt bill.
Mouthfeel: Mild burn of booze. Thick in body, but not huge.
Drinkability: Boozier than a bock but not as darkly malty as a doublebock. Resembled a brown ale in flavor, looked like an Americanized marzen. Reminiscent of a Dead Guy, actually. Not certain if I like this experiment. It's not bad, but nothing to go ga-ga over. History tells me bad things tend to happen when Germans get imperial aspirations... thankfully this bucked the trend.
Serving type: bottle
