3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black with a tons of quickly dispersing carbonation. Aromas are caramel, bread, and other various malt markers; nothing particularly special. Flavors run the same gamut as the aroma with just a touch of toffee, cocoa and coffee mixed in. Palate is very light and fizzy, which is nice and makes this a relatively refreshing dark beer. Overall this is a decent beer, nothing to write home about, but I am biased against lagers of all kinds. Though I normally stay away from lagers and rate them under 3, this one did me solid.
