Pours clear reddish brown with a tiny bit of brown head. Aroma is caramel, earth, smoke. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, tobacco, a hint of alcohol. Mouth feel is a bit thin given the big taste. Not my favorite style but I wouldn’t turn down another one.

almost black but clear, not bad on the head and lacing.
Aroma and flavor definitely do have notes of chocolate and coffee, especially chocolate. There are some toasty notes, and a little bit of dark fruits.
Body is pretty full for a lager, creamy and pretty smooth.
Interesting beer, certainly worth a try.
