Malty, slightly nutty aroma. Black and opaque in color. Malt flavors are quick on the front and then overcome by the hops, which are quick and clean.

Hmm.. quite pleasant surprise. Decent light roasted malty background with mild but all the way pleasant choco presence, light coffee, caramel, feels well balanced with light fruitiness from hops. Moderate sweet with light bitterness. Drinkable and quite enjoyable

Bottle from Beer Run, Czechvar Dark label, best buy 01.31.14, so several months out of date even though I got this a few days ago and it was also new at the retailer. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Poor head retention. Skunky aroma with notes of raisin and caramel. The taste is raisin, coffee, caramel, skunky hops. Thin bodied. Could be refreshing if not shipped way out of date in a green bottle. Fail.

Pours a cola color with a small tan head. The nose is fruit, brown sugar. The taste is roasty, a little slow, brown sugar, fruit ending dry. Light+in body with a touch less than average carbonation. The nose isn’t big but the flavor is.
