Been kinda chasing brews like this. Schwarzbier kinda malt profile, with a nice chocolate thing going on. Finishes pretty dry. They’re billing it as a dark beer for beer-wienies. It’s a very mellow brew, enjoying it with some football and cheese.

Finger of head, black colored body.

Taste has a great roast malt flavor with a little sweet bite.
Fizzy texture. Moderate carbonation and medium body. Slightly sticky.
A pretty good black ale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Thought this used to be in the Schwartzbier category. Light roasted malts and a hint of coffee. Lacking any kind of India Dark Ale bitterness. Medium to thin lager-like body with a lot of carbonation. Clean finish with light sweetness.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Notes of chocolate, chemicals/cleaner, fruity, smoke. This is not easy to drink, flavors are all over the place.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear, very dark, crimson ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The nose is very subtle, but I am finally able to pick up some nutty malts and dark berries. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is sweet and fruity with minimal bitterness. Finishes crisp, but sweet as well. Drinks a bit like a lager. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

Pours a solid black with a light brown head and plenty of lacing. It has an aroma of toasted malt with a small amount of coffee and chocolate. the flavor is lighter than you'd expect, with some roasted malt and coffee up front and a slightly sweet aftertaste.
