22oz bomber.

Pours completely black with only the faintest hint of light penetrating the edges. There's a small but thick mocha head that leaves only spotty lacing.

The aroma is nice with equal measures sweetness and roastiness. The sweetness comes from the dark chocolate mainly and the malts come across heavily roasted with some coffee hints. There are even some fresh green hops thrown in.

The taste is more of the same with the initial taste containing a kick of the green hops before the heavily roasted black malts take over. There is some cocoa sweetness on top with a finish that is a mixture of dry roasted malts and green hop bitterness.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied and extremely creamy with a dry, roasted finish.

This is a very good export stout and I like the hop presence thrown in for added complexity.

Pours a blackish body with large light brown head that dies slow and leaves lace. A malty mixture of black chocolate, caramel, bread, roasted and coffee along w/ hints of toffee and wood all are in the aroma. A real malty taste, much like aroma, as a thinner, smoother, creamier stout passes over tongue than expected but still packs a sweet taste. Chocolate, caramel, vanilla and possibly figs or molasses seem to pass my tongue as well as roasted, bread and wood notes so this is a balanced stout that has a sweetness and finishes dry. Just a well-crafted sipper w/ nothing extraordinary about it but a great sipper that I relaxed with.

22oz bottle into a DFH Signature glass pours a deep opaque black with a thin light tan head that diminishes to a thin layer and leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and dark chocolate with mild espresso. The taste is smooth roasted malts with hints of bitter cocoa and fresh ground coffee, an interesting contrast to the aroma. The beer is fairly light and crisp with decent carbonation. This is certainly an enjoyable stout, I'll have to pick up another bottle to try on a cold winter night.

Appearance: Pours dark as night with a small 1/4" head of tan bubbles on top. The head was pretty thick and creamy, so it looked like it was going to be there for a good while. As the head receded it left a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: I initially got some Chocolate along with some dry roasty and almost nutty aromatics. Some floral hops are defintely noticeable in here, and become more pronounced as it warms.

Taste: The flavor has a defined roasty component, but the overall balance is rather pleasant. The roast is a bit acidic, and lingers on the back of the palate for a good while into the finish. The beer doesn't really show it's strength as any alcoholic warming is obscurred by the acid. The dark malts give this beer a very subtle ashy impression, but that is not objectionable in this case. The beer is somewhat nutty, and the hops are playing a lot bigger role in the flavor and aroma than in the bittering. The finish is balanced.

Opinion: This is a pretty good beer. I like the balance. The roast is a bit acidic for my taste, so that detracts from this beers overall drinkability...but other than that, it is a really presentable beer and a good example of the Foreign Extra. I would drink this beer again, but probably not after a Koelsch like I did tonight.
