bomber from kroger. Cheap tick.

Looks like Guinness minus the nitro honestly. Kind of dull looking for a stout. Kind of thick head, but it fades leaving honestly a mountain floating like an iceberg in the middle.

Kind of smells like a dry Schwarzbier. Light roast and lager cleanliness.

Honestly, it needs that nitro body. This thing feels thin, overly roasty, and unbalanced. Needs some thick body, but just isnt there. not enough coffee, and nowhere near anything like chocolate. Tastes like a bad light bodied homebrew.
