Dark amber with a big foamy head. Flavor is dark malt, with a little spice. Medium body. Not bad save for the slightly metallic finish, but what do you expect from 75 year old steel tanks recycled from the United States deep into mexico.

Patrickctenchi (6096) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle: Murky..., dark brown with a small beige head. Caramel, toasted bread, chocolate scent. Taste is sweet, but a little bready.....caramel/chocolate malts. Surprisingly rich.....a bit stale.....I’d guess I’d up my score with a more fresh sample....not too bad, really.

llcooldave (1189) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2014
12oz bottle from trader joes. Nice dark brown leather in the glass. Toasty crust flavor almost like slightly burnt pizza crust but in a good way. Also there is some dried fruit notes, dates & raisins, as it warms up. Clean toasty malt aroma but nothing exciting. Overall, i didn’t have much hope for this but it surprised me... Not bad, not bad at all.

stevoj (4029) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Nice malty aroma and pleasant appearance, but it falls flat after that. taste is watery and bland, very abrupt finish, slightly metallic. Just malt taste, that’s it, was hoping for better.

shrubber85 (10760) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle. Chocolate and barley malt aroma. Medium brown color with giant tan head. Lightly sweet chocolate malt flavor with hint of hops. Okay - pretty light though.

jkwood04 (5294) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 27, 2012
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours ruby/copper with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel malts, a little bit of toffee/nuts, and some light hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle from Liquor Barn Springhurst. Pours dark brown with a thin off-white head. Notes of toasted malt, bready, lightly sweet caramel, light roast undertones. Medium bodied, lightly sweet with soft carbonation. Much better than I was expecting, I’d like to try it again.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle: Dark pellucid brown color with a nice white head. The nose is toasty with nuts and dark malts, crisp and roasty with a light chewy almond quality. Clean and fresh with a light roasty underlayer and a mild body with a refreshing finish. Nice dark lager (vienna?) with a sweet toasty finish.

Nekronos (4111) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 22, 2011
Just awesome. It was mor elike a schwartz bier mixed with a keller one. These guys made an excellent job with this. Shape, aroma, aftertaste, head, everything.

Braudog (6379) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Bottle. Poured with an airy pile of white foam on top, reddish/brown underneath. The aroma is full-on sugary maltiness. This drinks with the same big sweet toffee character, as if this was 100% malt. (#4056, 1/2/2011)
