Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small creamy brown head that diminishes to a fine creamy ring and leaves some lacing. Unfortunately looks are deceiving as the beer is thin, watery and almost entirely devoid of flavor.

Big roasted notes to start the beer out, pours an opaque black with a light tan head. Very complex flavor, with rye and roasted notes blending well, and just a touch of fruit. Very light bodied, with a slightly slick mouthfeel. I think classing it as a Kolsch style my hold it back. This is a good solid drinking beer, but I would never have classed it as a Kolsch by taste alone.

Bomber. Roasted malt aroma with notes of rye, coffee and chocolate. Pours black with a decent light brown head with good retention and minimal lacing. Starts heavily with roasted malt flavors as well as some coffee. Finishes fairly dry with, but the flavor is kind of hard to describe. A lot of rye with a spicy ending that lingers on the palate that I don't find to be that great. Ok beer, but the finish sort of ruins it for me.

Chocolate roast and a bit of a hard to describe kinda complex spicey-kind of character but spicey is the closest but inaccurate way to describe it. Bit of earthy,leatheryness maybe. Mineral,marshmello. Its pretty complex really. Same in taste with particularly a kind of butteryness also. Some coffee, ashyness. Very nice. Complex. This works well. Smooth and chocolatey with a mild roastyness but not too astringent. Dang! this is really good.

22 ounce bottle. Dark brown color with a thick creamy tan head. Roasted malt nose. More roasted malt flavor with a touch of wood and sour grain. Complex malts make for a flavorful and drinkable ale. Smoky bitter hop finish.
