3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Toasty coffee malt and singed hops aroma. Odd lactic undertone, wait till it warms if that’s not really apparent. Dark cola brown. The texture is kind of cola like too - nice and crisp and sometimes gritty, yet mellow as a whole. Bittersweet coffee taste. This one is about what the brewer describes, and can be abbreviated to something like dunkel with schwartz tendencies.

22oz bomber shared at a DC tasting. Brown black, very light delicate body. Takes a style that is made pretty sub-standardly all too often, and really perfects it. Great clean example of the style.

Bottle provided by jslot38. Thanks! Well I noted it had an awful aroma - but i don’t remember why I noted that or anything else, ah well. Anyway, poured a ruby-cola color with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet roasted, chocolates, and toffee. Flavor was likewise.

Pours out looking like a typical stout. Nice frothy tan head. Light roasty aromas. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin and somewhat fizzy. Lots of roasty malts though. This one is what it says it is. Easy drinking and quaffable. Perfect with a meal.
