2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The beer pours a very dark brown with a rather creamy tan head.
S: Starts off a little buttery, but that seems to diminish with time. Moderate roastiness with some nice toasted malt and an earthy and floral hop profile. A little bit of bread and toffee sweetness.
T: The flavor also shows some butter. Sweet with a big creamy caramel flavor. Some roast, but not all that intense. A mild bitterness to go along with some light earthy hop notes.
M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: One of the least awful beers at Babeís, but thatís not saying much.

On tap at Babes Bar-B-Que Grill & Brewhouse 1/8/10. Now marketed as Blackfin Lager. Pours a dark brown with moderate tan head. Aroma is biscut malt and caramel. Flavor is very sweet and not smoky for a supposed schwarzbier. Lots of caramel and toffee flavors and just a hint of light coffee malt.
