Really nice rich chocolatey lager. Nothing particularly smokey from this, but light sweetness and very pleasant.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Tasted on 5/26/12 from a growler, thanks to Nick. Pours completely opaque black with a thin beige head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is full of coffee and dark chocolate with a nice bitter green hops aroma. The flavor is nice and dry with coffee, dusty dark chocolate, and the green, nicely bitter hops. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation, and a long bitter dark chocolate and coffee finish.

Pours a dark brown color with off-white head. Dark malts, cereal grains, and some bread and biscuit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with roasted malt.

rdixon77 (1540) - Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Dark black, almost opaque pour. Lots of grains and maltiness with a roasted presence in the aroma. Taste was much crisper bringing in a slight hop bite to match biscuit, coffee, and chocolate flavors. Light and drinkable for being so rich. Very good.

theisti (3446) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Shaker pint draft at the Brass Tap in Coral Springs, Florida. The pour is a dark brown black with a one inch khaki head that falls quick. The aroma is soft roast and char nutty malt. The taste is the clean fresh nutty malt with the char roast of the nose. The palate is medium to light bodied with active carbonation and a mineral soft roast dry finish. Clean and very well made.

On tap at the brewery. Comes dark brown with a nice beige head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, caramel, pine, and smoke. Very good.

SlovakSniper (3811) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
En fût au Riverside Market Cafe. Un verre presque noir. Une petite tête brune bien droite. Des parfums de malts chocolatés rôtis avec des traces de café, du caramel terreux, de la fine fumée de torréfaction et des arômes de conifères. Des saveurs bien sèches de grains noirs grillés et rôtis avec une petite présence de fumée et des traces de houblons américains et anglais. En bouche, un corps moyen avec un pétillement au ralenti et une texture bien crémeuse. Une finale chocolatée justement sèche. Une belle surprise. Très facile à boire.
