Deep brown with tan head. Aroma of bready biscuity malt with toast, bakers chocolate and nutty notes. Flavor similar with some toasty Munich character and some light roast that dries out the finish. Clean lager character. Very nice.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. A sweet nose of chocolates and toast. A sweet chocolate flavor, light toast, sweet light hops. Good. Very good actually.

Bottle. Pours amber brown with a beige head. Dark and wheaty malts, light chocolate, light dark fruits, and light earthy notes. This "LTD" series is pretty consistently good, and this is no exception.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep chestnut brown with fuzzy tan head. Lots of chalky-sulfur lager aroma with a moderate amount of pure cocoa. Medium-light body, fairly frothy, moderate coarseness, and moderate carbonation. Flavor brings out fresh herbal grasses coupled with light chocolate and grains. Not so much coffee, touch of dark burnt toast in there. Light, fresh bitterness, with considerable linger time for the style. Overall, more balanced towards hops and yeast complexity away from malt for the style. Not bad, better than the aroma suggests, which isn’t all that bad to begin with.

Black but not opaque with a thin tan head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is similar to aroma but subdued and burnt, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Lightly sweet, but not rich. Medium bodied and slick.

Pours a rich, dark black with a nose of coppery cocoa and rusty malt. Flavor is raspberry chocolate fudge with a hint of vanilla in the finish. Watery mouthfeel. Meh.

Light roasted aroma. Coffee-ish roasted malt flavor. Somewhat sweet; more so in the finish. Moderate bitterness. A little herbal/spicy flavor--assuming it’s hops.

12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a barely transparent when held to a light source black with heavy shading of darkened maroon, light carbonation, tan ring around the glass for a head that did lace extremely well. Aroma of a caramel malt, molasses, milk chocolate, and FUCKING BEER!!! Hits the mouth with a high-medium body, malt is extremely tasty with caramel laced within it, middle holds up fine, finish is sweetened light artificially but that does not stop from the enjoyment. Beer. Here. Keep your bait n’ switch Texughtuckyass shit, and give me this. Now.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Very easy drinking, cannot tell this is 7%. Nice chocolate notes, floral, fruity hints, malty. This is one of the best in the LTD series that I have had.
