Dark. Malt based nose of caramel and some different chocolate variety. Great hop flavor with some biting cascade behind a similar malt flavor. To thin... good idea, average execution.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear dark red brown pour with a light tan head, medium retention and nice looking lace. Green apple and a touch of roasted grain on the aroma. Flavor is bland with some carbonation that leads to a slightly roasted grain. Could be more here. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation and no alcohol warmth.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had at the summit Brewfest & BBQ on 5/16/09. Color is a dark brown with good carbonation and a small tight tan head. Aroma is light with a little roasted malt coming though. Its a lighter medium bodied brew with an easy roasted malt taste and a clean finish. Overall it doesn’t have a lot going on, its just a plain dark lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
When fresh this beer is a very nice dark lager. IT is not overly sweet and thick like others in the category. Smells somewhat roasty on the nose with some bread and a bit of malt. Pours a reddish brown color with some offish white head that goes away quick. Mouthfeel is a pleasant medium but like many of Durnago’s beers it lacks in the carbonation. Flavor is malty and sweet with some dry roast going on. Some hops are noticeable on the end. When fresh it is a nice offering... Hard to find it this way because it sits in the stores for a long time

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours jet black with little head. Aroma of light dark malts - chocolatey, burnt coffee, etc. No hops to be detected. Taste is very smooth with those light dark malts from the aroma being reflected in the taste. Fairly bubbly, but still pretty easy to drink. Not very interesting.

A buddy brought me this from CO when he couldn’t fulfill my request for Old Chub. Talk about asking for a fish and getting a snake!
