Bottle from the Lee fridge. Pours an almost black with thin head; very mild chocolate nose and initial flavor...pleasant way to spend an evening. Smooth chocolate ending...

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2015 $3 draft at Eureka. Clear dark brown with creamy white head. Aroma: toast, copper, toffee, light cocoa. Taste is moderately sweet, bringing more caramel and copper. Minimally bitter finish. Palate: light body, lively carbonation, quaffable. Overall: nice cheap easy-drinking darkish lager.
Bottle at home, while baking way too many loaves of bread and thinking about a bunch of other shit instead of rating. And you know what? This beer was just great. I enjoyed it a lot and when it was over I wished I had another. I used to play chess with a dude we called Shoeless Dave (not to be confused with Crazy Dave). We called him that because he’d been barefoot continuously for 15 years, as he tells it. He drank mello yello by the 2-liter, and wore this matching green sweatpant/sweatshirt combo, and the shirt read "Set your feet free, and your mind will follow." Some things, like this, are best not to think about too hard.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear bronze with an off-white head. The aroma has roasty light schwartz like malt, lager smoothness, dark caramel and toffee. It has a medium smooth body with lots of soft carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma notes, but with spicy earthy hops. Decent dunkel.

Nice roasted chocolate aroma. Appears black but is see through with a deep mahogany hue. The head only appears momentarily and is gone before you know it. Slight roasted malt tasting but then goes down relatively smooth with some mild bitterness. Sense some caramel sweetness too. Feels clean and light on the palate.

12oz bottle--> pint glass, dark amber with with a nice tall head that soon settles. Notes of maple, caramel, and roasted malts follow from nose to drink. A bit on the light side, simple but delicious. As you can guess, you'll want to make sure you have a supply on hand.

(Bottle) Pretty nice and dark but it’s very astringent. And feels pretty thin. Not great but not terrible.
