3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a near black with white carbonation. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Taste is the base of a pilsner with an added coffee/roasted malt flavor. Interesting. Not what I would have done to a pils, but different.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a very dark yet clear brown color with a medium sized off-white head that faded quickly. Not too much in the aroma but some chocolate and caramel. Some toffee as well. Some yeast and skunk too. Taste has an interesting combination of flavors. A good amount of cheesy notes with some egg and grains. Chocolate and hay towards the finish. Quite drinkable.

A nice schwarzbier. Nothing too great, but certainly enjoyable. And worth your time if you run across it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild malt aroma and a mild malt flavor. Not a bad flavor, just not much going on with this beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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