Roasted coffee aromas. Roasted coffee and a little hop bitterness. Overall not too bad for a black pilsner.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Nose was a little weak and taste was pretty traditional pilsner. Not a lot worth noting outside of the color.

Pours a darker brown color with a lighter brown foamy head. Smells of coffee. Taste is a little watery with those coffee notes. Not a bad tasting beer!

Bottle @ 18th RG. Prey dark with thin head. Smells like a cross between pilsener and stale coffee. Light toastiness in the flavor. Kind of grainy.

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.

Black with a decent brown head. Aroma is slight roasted malt, mildly burnt. Flavor is burnt coffee with a light finish. Really tastes like it’s trying to be a porter instead of a pilsner, not as good as other black lagers I’ve had. A little more body and it could have been a well rounded porter. As it is, slightly over burnt for a black lager.

Dissapointing. Beautiful black pour with a rich brown head. Bitter for bitters sake. I will not be buying this beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Milk chocolate, subtle coffee, and noble hops on the nose. Dark brown-black with a moderate, khaki head. Roasty with a hoppy snap, very balanced. Medium body, lively carbonation, and finishes very cleanly with lingering roasted chocolate and grassy, hop tones.

Dark with a amber hue and a foamy(ish) white head. Candy malt aroma with a very slight taint of skunkiness. Bitter, smokey, malty, grassy, molasses taste. A bit thin and carbonated. A winter session beer.
