3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, also taster at LA/PB. Aroma is smoky plus dark malts. Obviously not your average lager. Taste could fairly be described as stout x lager -- you get the choco and coffee notes up front with a clean finish. If "stout lager" sounds good to you, drink this. Sorry to be so basic.

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown pour with a light brown head. Enticing malt aromas. Lots roasted malts, but not bitter or overly roasted, with caramel and chocolate undertones. Great body and mouthfeel. A fantastic Dunkel. Coffee.

Bomber from Binny’s in Bloomingdale, IL. Dark cola pour that looks a bit dense, and a nice frothy head. Good looking beer. Aroma is a bit of raisin and tea. Fuller palate, slight bitterness. This is pretty darn good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours darker amber in color with a slightly tanned head. Bit of roasted notes and nuttyness in aroma, some sweeter notes of toffee and biscuit too is there. Actually one could get some notes of campfire as well, that would probably be the steinbier contribution here. Notes of openfire breadyness, sweet toffee and dark fruits in taste. More towards the bitter side in the end with some notes of dark chocolate and coffee.

22 oz bottle poured into glass...Pours dark and golden, but dirty, with a beige, dirty head. The aroma is malty but pleasant. The flavor is coffee-like, with hints of nuttiness & chocolate, bitter, but not too bitter. Overall, it was a nice beer that I could drink daily

Pours three fingers of tan head on a dark brown-red colored body.
The aroma has roasted malt and a little cocoa power. Nice.
The taste is dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate and a little cream.
The texture is soft and fizzy.
Excellent flavors and smell.
