COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and malty, the appearance doesn’t prepare you for a crispness of taste. Lighter than it looks, it is very drinkable and beautifully smooth.

(Free!) bottle at Draft House. Very dark brown, lightly sparkling, small white head. Aroma is light malt, faintly ashy. Body is medium, quite foamy. Taste is light malt, soft bitterness, a touch watery with some molasses. Very average…but free and therefore awesome by default.

Delicious and surprisingly easy drinking for a dark beer. Probably my favorite session beer and no hangover the next day.

kidmartinek (3655) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Draught, pours dark amber with a thin but full head. Laces like weak soap. Aroma is barley with husk. Watery barley flavor with a medium body. Its a pure beer, unadulterated but boring and too watery. I like my chuggin’ beers totally crap, not better like this one.

jamestulloch (1395) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle from Cornelius. Murky brown body with a huge, fluffy beige head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of metal, grass, grain, yeast and tea. Flavour of nuts, malt, earth and a faint chocolate powder note. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Decent.

aleksander9 (437) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2013
Nice black appearance with small white head. aroma is pretty bland: roasted malt, wet used sponge and mild floral. aftertaste is chocolate, some coffee and light floral hop notes. Overall: Bland-tastic beer!
