Bomber. Poured chocolatey-brown with a short, but dense-ish cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter chocolates, molasses, and lesser coffee, with sweet, smoky caramel bringing up the rear.. smooth and sweet impression. The flavor opened with a tart, malty kick and coffee bitterness, quickly backed by dry-roasted caramel and chocolate notes.. dry coffee bitterness, lactic character, and vanilla surrounded.. finished roasty and dry with a fine blend of everything I previously mentioned. Medium-bodied at its very most.. dry and roasty as mentioned.. this was on the hoppy and bitter side for the style, which was a welcome twist. I could drink far too much of this.

pantanap (3357) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2010
22oz bottle from west lakeview (old rating).... seen this on tap around town but picked up a bottle instead... pours a dark cola brown with a slowly forming thin ring of a frothy white head... aroma of german grains and malt, cola, in addition to flavors of sweet caramel, grain, light cocoa as well as some subtle roast on the backend. mildy sweet through the middle and finish with a prick of bitterness at the very end. carbonation falls in the middle of the road and the body is somewhat on the lighter side. pretty drinkable nonetheless. looking forward to more from these guys. 7/3/7/3/14

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark reddish-brown color with a white head. The beer is very clear. The aroma is a nice mix of caramel, chocolate and toffee malts, definitely a malt bomb. The flavor is mainly caramel malt, roasted malt and a hint of smoke. I don’t get too much chocolate in the flavor after getting a lot in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
