Really dark brown with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of roasted barley, molasses, and nuts. Taste is a touch thin; roasted and malty and ever so slightly bitter. Medium thin. Not bad, but I wonít buy it again.

This poured a nice black color with a beige head. The aroma contains chocolate and a bit of nuttiness. The flavor is rather dry with some chocolate, coffee, and licorice. The palate is a bit thin. Overall not world class but an ok beer.

11.2oz in Drakeís pint glass. Near black with small fizzy ecru head. Very appetizing cornflakes and distant coffee aroma. Clean and tasty flavors of molasses, Munich malt, and sweet corn. Pleasant lager finish, generous carbonation. Excellent sessionable, interesting beer.

I found this pretty tasty. Some roasty notes, not that heavy, certainly hit the spot for Beer Friday at work.

Whatíd they do here, roast up a Harp? I think I actually prefer Sam Adamís Black Lager to this Thin, boring and flat.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark black color with a small tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, touch of coffee perhaps? Taste was bitter, dark roasted malts. It wasnít too bad actually, had no idea they made this until I found it in some random mid-west grocery store in August.

Pours dark brown color with light tan head. Toasted malt and caramel aromas. Very bland lightly roasted malt flavor. Light to medium body with moderate carbonating.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2011
12oz bottle from Pickís poured into an English Pint. Pours a dark black with about 1 finger of frothy tan head. Aroma of black roasted malt and a slight hint of coffee. Taste is lightly bitter and very lightly sour. Slight hint of coffee. Light bodied with a thin yet creamy texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, not too bad. Nothing I would seek out but I would definitely choose this over any BMC.

Pours a thin, but deep dark brown with a medium beige lacing. Overall one dimensional and very similar to a BMC light beer.
