Large tan head with very good retention but minimal lacing. Black, ruby edged brew, nice lookin. Soft nose of lightly sweet malts, bread and a bit of roast and chocolate. Body is nicely medium, oily on the palate, gentle carbonation, slick and coating.Pleasent flavors of roast and light smoke, notes of chocolate and coffee, bit of caramel and butter. A tastey, fairly black brew, caught me off guard. I had a 14 hour day at work today, maybe i,m delirious?? Tastes real nice though. Finish is fairly dry and roasty with maybe some black patent? IDK? Just hit the spot. Bomber from statelineliquors. Ya happy Todd?!

Bottle. Poured a black color with an average creamy brown head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate roasted malt and bread aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Sold drinkable brew.

On tap 1/2 pint at Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD.
Nearly opaque, deep mahogany with thin buff head and good lacing that starts very nicely, but doesn't linger. .
Aroma of roasted malt, sweet pilsner malt, grain, chocolate and nuts
Taste of roasted grain, sweet pilsner malt, pineapple, smokey chocolate and nuts.
Medium/light body with medium/high carbonation.
I liked the pilsner attributes with the dark, smokey roasted aspects.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an opaque cola brown with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, tan head. Malty aroma has hints of burnt hops and a fruity touch. Flavor has a core of roast malt and hints of charred wood and - horehound? Caramel? Not sure. Smooth texture is a teensy on the watery side and has about average fizz. OK, not Heavy Seas’ best, and I hope not Devils Backbone’s best - but an enjoyable beer.

Draft at fireworks leesburg. Pours coca cola brown with a small khaki head. Not much on the nose. A bit thin on the tongue which is good. Some solid maltiness on the tongue. Solid but not spectacular.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark garnet brown and sits black in a glass with one finger of fizzy dark tan head. Nose is kind of musty/bready, smells like a pils for sure. Grassy notes with some toasted bread and burnt popcorn. Medium bodied, bit more than I’d guess from the style. Light bitterness from the grain, slight acidity as well. Just a hint of coffee and bakers chocolate on the finish.
