12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma is toasted marshmallow, chocolate, bread. Pours black with a one finger tan head that collapses fairly quick. Taste is sweet and roasty, slightly tart edges, wet river rock flavor. Very much like a porter. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body. Good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: near black with a thick, rocky tan head and generous lacing. Aroma: rich and roasty-dark, with chocolate, espresso, leather, pipe smoke, and a hint of licorice. Taste: bittersweet and dry dark chocolate, with coffee, caramel, a hint of fire-smoke, slightly herbal, resinous hops. Finish: surprisingly clean and dry, with a slightly chewy lingering roast character. Notes: Dunkler Bock? Schwarzbier? Who cares. This is astoundingly good. Huge aromas and flavors, and yet the palate, while rich, keeps things light enough to make this surprisingly refreshing. What a treat.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Pour on tap, dark reddish brown pour with thin white head, aroma brought dark roast, dark fruits, hints of toffee, slight biscuit in there as well with a touch of yeast, hints of cocoa in there, nice spicy notes as well. Taste is a mix of dark fruits, some roasted malts into a bit of coffee, cocoa, slight earth, spice, finishing with some more fruity notes, pretty sweet and dry.
