this had an interesting flavor, not something i could have every day, but a good beer.

Toasty malty aroma. Coffee, earthy, toasty taste with a wet but slightly acidic finish. Refreshing, tastes like a porter.

Pretty good for a beer style that I have a mixed opinion of; I seem to enjoy dark beers made in climates usually associated with thin light stuff (i.e. this, Negra Modelo, Lion Stout.)

This may be one that I’ll have to try again, simply because I only got a little bit. However, due to the reviews by others I’m a little apprehensive.

One of the best beers for a stout lover when they don’t have a stout.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2003 (Rerate 2003) While my original tasting notes are consistent I just felt that with more experience it seems a little too thin in body, although the chocolaty flavor does linger well in the aftertaste. Not a bd six pack but I've found some better ones since. (2001)Dark color, almost black, reddish-brown. The tan head is nothing too impressive, and did not last long, while the carbonation is also fairly low. Nose is not particularly strong, but does reveal signs of hoppiness as well as a sweet, malty toasted aroma. The flavor is predominantly malty with hints of caramel at first. It does wash over the palate a little quickly, which makes you realize that this is actually a lager. There’s also a nice fizzy carbonation to go with the deep flavors. The hops and dryness come into play more around the finish, and the beer rounds out a little coffee-like.

Thin, crisp, malty, dark lager from a company who probably shouldn’t attempt this type of beer. Light carbonation with hints of chocolate. Better than Dixie beer, but thats no compliment.

Almost no carbonation. Aftertase of ’burnt wood’ so to speak. Very sweet.

It had me from the first taste. Very crisp. A must try.
