Another big "thank you" goes out to BitterBill with the Kern River hookup, thanks Bill! Class V is a devilishly dark concoction with a beige head that rises to one finger in height. The head eventually falls to a thick collar and skim coat leaving behind some thin lacing.

The nose is different than I expected. Coffee grounds and a splash of Hershey's chocolate syrup are the first things that come to mind. A touch of roastiness comes along with some lactic sweetness coming along stealth-like. The aromas all come together well, unfortunately they all seem to be on the weak side.

The flavor follows the same lines as the nose. Spent coffee grounds and chocolate syrup roll over the tongue from the get go. Very faint nuttiness hits mid palate with the lactic sweetness following closely. Again, the flavors feel slightly watered down, especially considering the nature of these flavors. With all that said, this is a tasty sipper.

The mouthfeel shows the same weakness as both the nose and flavor, it just seems a little watered down. The body is medium and has a touch of fizziness on the swallow. If the carbonation wasn't so lofty the body would be more appropriate.

This is a solid beer and although the mouthfeel doesn't fit like it should it does help this beer go down easily.

Kern River brews some insanely good beer. Class V is the weakest of their offerings I have had yet and it's still a damn fine brew that I would pick up on occasion if available here. Thanks for the bottle, Bill!
