3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle
I picked this up because it was a cheap risk at $4.99. The outcome is a solid schwarzbier that is pretty typical for a Heavy Seas release. It’s not exceptional but at this price point it does not have to be to meet my expectations.
Aroma / Appearance - The reddish black base and creamy white head play well against each other. Contained with the fluid base are light chocolate, mellow malts, and hops that merge into a semi-sweet texture. It might be a bit bland yet it gets the job done.
Flavor / Palate - The creamy filling of a custard donut fills the mouth with a soft texture. Playing it safe the flavors are a bit unremarkable after a few sips. Even so it has no glaring flaws. In fact it was a bit tricky to describe by the end. For a low cost bomber I’d recommend giving it a look.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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?!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Brad while watching Le Tour de France. Merci!
The beer is a dark chestnut color. Very dark, nearing black. Atop the beer rests nearly an inch of light beige head. Spotty lacing.
The aroma is subtle, offering hints of chocolate, roast.
Light, simple, mild roast. Easy drinking and soft on the palate. A touch of pine and bitterness. Overall, the flavor is a bit subdued and understated.
A decent beer. Nothing wrong with it. Good pairing with some spicy food.
