2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a dark burgundy color with great clarity given its shade. I like its head - a three finger light tan color with nice retention, and excellent texturing. Even after a while, it still remains a half finger high, leaving very nice, thick lacing down the side of the glass.
S: Toasted caramel malts and chocolate. Very faint in general - there’s nothing wrong with it per se, but it’s so aromatically boring.
T: Again, not really flawed, but so damn mild and even watery. Chocolaty sweetness to start, a candylike midtaste, with a vaguely toasted finish. And that’s about it. I can chug it, at least.
M: Clean, damn near bone dry, and thin. This makes it super easy to drink, but the watery factor detracts some. Good carbonation.
O: The ultimate in inoffensive beer. There’s nothing bad or good here - really, it just exists in the market place like white bread exists in a grocery store. And money no object, would you rather have white bread or the artisanal 9-grain stuff? Thought so.

Interesting beer. Aroma eerily of a double. Tastes of a watered down IPA/Stout combo, although somewhat refreshing and lively. Finish is almost sweet like a double. Weird.

Consumed a long time ago when I first entered into the beer stratosphere. I can’t say it was my favorite even back then.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear mahogany with red highlights and a long lasting khaki head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with a little coffee, and roasted malt. Flavor is rich roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Drinks almost like a stout. Light- Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, long finish. Very, very good beer with no surprises. Par for the course.
