An interesting and extremely dark lager. I enjoyed it, just couldnít believe the character was bottom fermented. I spent most of the beer confused about what the hell I was drinking. It was decent though.

ahhh how the palate changes over the years. Two years ago at the beginning of my beer drinking craze i thought this stuff was great. Now, its alright but it canít hold a candle to Sprecher Black Bavarian.

Very very dark brown, brown head that kept pretty well, a malty taste with some slight coffee undertones, great balance because you could still taste the hops very well, excellent dark lager

I have never seen so many bubbles in a beer! The flavor was a letdown. Too carbonated.

Dark and malty, but very carbonated. It didnít exaclty fit with the look and flavor of the beer. Being a fan of dark beers, it was kind of a letdown. As a lager however it had a nice flavor.

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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 Iíll have to try again, simply because I only got a little bit. However, due to the reviews by others Iím a little apprehensive.
