Black brown pour with light tan head and lace. Aroma is roasted malt. Flavor is semi sweet roasted malt. Medium bodied but just a tad thin and fizzy for me. still a pretty solid sb,

On draft. Flavors of coffee, toffee and caramel, all with a pervading roastiness. Finishes clean, dry as a bone. Super spring/summer beer.

I stumbled across this beer at a bar in DC and fell in love with it. Pours very dark - but dob’t let that fool you - easy drinking beer. Notes of caramel and coffee after it is poured with a decent head.
This is a fine beer and I think you should give it a try!

Bottle. I didn't like this one at all. Taste is off, almost sour. Palate is thin. Not recommended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich deep dark brown body with a lighter brown and deeper than cola coloured tint - all with a thin, half a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, grass and a lot of deep bitterness from the malt. Light-bodied; Strong roasty flavours with the nuts and caramel coming out the strongest, then showing a light grassy and dry flavour. Aftertaste shows some deep bitterness, but mostly a dry herbal note and very light smoked flavour. Overall, a nice and strong bitter flavour from the malt and little else, especially in terms of complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Giant Food in Arlington, Virginia on 12-March-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 30-March-2014, just over a year later.

Aromas of coffee, roasted malts, chocolates - just woody, asshes, not much of a fruity tyouch. Same for flavour. Very 2-dimensional. Watery. Faithful to style, I suppose.
