3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours quite black with a huge, foamy dark tan head. Smells like chocolate. Medium body plus with smooth carbonation. Flavor starts chocolate, then goes rather gritty, and almost smoky with coffee. It is much more bitter than not, and it has a really nifty mouthfeel in the finish. Wonder if I imagined the smoke. I think it’s pretty complex for a lager, and it drinks very easily. Bitter is starting to show up on the sides of my tongue, and other things are going on too. Good job from Rogue.
