3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nutty, smokey toast aroma. Cloudy brown color, huge persistent head that maintain structure in a way where it actually slants towards the side of the initial pour for several minutes. Very cool. Burnt oaty flavor, a muted sweetness. Smooth body, crisp and dry. Good heavier schwarz.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle. Pours a very dark amber with an off white head. Sweet caramel aroma followed by sweet caramel taste. Nothing else. It’s OK but not much going on here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle @ Julio’s Liquors. Lager glass shows Dark brown or mahogany with thin beige head with decent retention. Nose is lager yeast, get no roasted notes. Flavor is real mild. Light chocolate malt, lager yeast and the weakest hint of roasted malt. Overall this brew drinks easy. Mainly because this doesn’t have much going on. Note: I really like this style beer, so this is a big disappointment for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to skim surface leaving spot lacing. Dark chocolate and caramel aromas. Thin with dark caramel upfront turning to dry chocolate and espresso in the lasting earthy finish.
