I donít usually go for the black beers but I liked this one. I thought the head retention was adequate and the maltiness of the aroma was enticing. The body isnít too heavy. The palate is very creamy and pleasantly bitter.

b3shine (4447) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Draft to taster at the Atlanta brewpub. Looks solid; a transparent brown with foamy off-white head. Smells malty with notes of dough and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.
