Very interesting. Pours a dark amber with a smallish head. Strong levels of roasted malts in the nose that come through in the taste, too. A little non-hops bitterness to it, but an easy drink.

Not really much there. An initial rusty taste, sort of a beer that was not sure what it was supposed to be. Ok a lager I guess with just a tad of roast and very little smoke. a confused beer.

Dark brown with a small tan head., light off white lace. Heavily roasted, earthy, light cocoa, ash. Medium bodied, roasty, ashy, lightly astringent. Easy drinking, not a ton of flavor, but solid and inoffensive.

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.
