3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz "stubby" bottle served in a pilsner glass. Pours clear dark brown with a large khaki head that quickly recedes to a thin capping. Smells mildly sweet with notes of oatmeal and cocoa. The flavor has a touch of roastedness to it with some oats, chocolate, and dough backing it up. Finishes dry with a slight chocolate note. Leaves a nice coating of lace down most of the glass. Nice full flavored lager that doesn’t over do it and keeps it sessionable.

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

"pretty much what i expected from this one. a session ale as advertised, nothing more, nothing less. there’s obvious quality to this brew, but it’s nothing to go out of your way for. a little dry, well balanced chocolate malt and hops."

Brown coca cola appearance. Aroma of light roasted malt and burned bread with yeast and light fruitiness. Flavor of burned bread and some malt sweetness. Medium light body. Burned aftertaste. Not bad. Good value.

Decent dark beer for a reasonable price. Nothing too special about but good for when you don’t want to put down a lot more money on a specialty or microbrew.
