Picked up a bomber of this at my local liquor store yesterday.
Pours a dark black with a huge "root beer" style head. Great retention with thick globs of lacing on the sides of the glass. This beer has a very appealing look!
Aroma is mellow. Nothing super amazing going on here. Mostly malts.
Taste is a nice balance between malts and hops and finishes with a dry bitterness. This beer is simple, but good. This beer is rich and satisfying. The dry bitterness on the backend keeps me coming back for another sip.
Overall this is a good beer. Very enjoyable, but not anything that is over the top amazing...just a good beer!

One fine body…
This black beer is a Bohemian Pilsner gone dark. German malts, noble hops, and lager yeast combine for our take on this traditional beer style.
