Bottle. At OBX. Dark brown color. Lots of roasted malt aroma, cocoa, cofee, caramel, nuts. Medium light sweetness. Light bitter. Medium body. Ave carbonation. Taste about the same as aroma. Creamier texture. Not bad.

Nice light dark lager but without the malty complexities of the true German. That said a wonderful late night summer beer when the air has cooled and the tinge of autumn and Oktoberfest is in the air.

Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Dark brown, cola-like pour with a quickly dissipating, bubbly off-white head. Very faint chocolate notes in the aroma, otherwise pretty neutral. Flavor is slightly bland, some brief licorice notes, a hint of chocolate, finish of black dirt. Mouthfeel is slightly spritzy. Had better from these folks.

22oz bottle. Clear dark red (near-black) color. Good thin tan head. Bit of lace. Soft, moderate carbonation, dry finish. Lighter body. Roasty aroma, some caramel and chocolate malts. Light bitter taste. Sweet honey note, as another rater said. Decent light schwarzbier.. OK flavor, but not very interesting, not an amazing texture.

Pours black with a thin lt tan head. Aroma is roasty...light burnt notes...hoppy. flavor follows suit...some chocolate and caramel notes. Mouthfeel is full and the finish is roasty/caramely. This drinks more like a black IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased at Hop City in Atlanta, GA; enjoyed prior to sticking it out in traffic to get from one end of the city to the other in rush hour. Appearance a very dark coffee brown with an apparent white head that rims around the glass. Aroma of light chocolate, bit of yeast, bit of nut. Taste a little thin but not bad, definite chocolate presence, moderate body with lighter carbonation. Decent stuff.

Draft at Tattooed Mom. Poured a dark red brown. Fizzy off-white head. Burnt wheat. Dark chocolate caramel malt. More bitter dry than sweet. Good carbonation. Nice full well blended flavors. Charcoal finish. Low on alcohol but high on taste.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bomber ----> glass - Nice blend of well-rounded caramel malts with a pretty assertive hopiness on the back end. I couldn’t really detect an aroma of this thing, so that did negatively effect the overall, but no so much my enjoyment. Another good "budget" bomber from Heavy Seas.

Mild malt aroma and a mild malt flavor. Not a bad flavor, just not much going on with this beer.

Serving: Draft. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. The nose has a good bit of roasted malt. The flavor has fresh brewed coffee, roasted malt, with a lingering mix of bitterness. The crisp finish is very nice. Great collaboration brew.
