From the bottle poured a dark brown brew with a thin light brown head that disipated quickly. not a lot of aroma, but a little roasty malt did I detect. Medium mouth feel and over all not bad, but not the reall deal.

Pours blank with a chocolate foam. Molasses aroma. Sweet molasses malty flavor immediately on the tongue. The sweetness grows with each taste.

Pours black with a small beige head that leaves a little lacing. Nice Roasted malt aroma. Initial drink has some black malt bitterness. Thin Body with a dry finish. Not a big fan of black Lagers but this one is above average.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black w/little brown @ bottom. 2-3 finger head fades. Leaves little laceing. Smells like Guinness & a BAD lager. Taste:Barley flakes,roastedness, sour(ish), chocolate, & lager taste. It was good but be even better if it had a stout taste over the lager taste but the bottle I had, had a date that passed when I had it but didnít say if it was best b4 or not. The lager part I found the worst part.

I did not care one bit for this brew. Something sort of "off"/bitter in the aftertaste that was just a downer. Aromas were weak as well as the flavors. Very thin and watery in texture. Only upside was the excellent lacing on the glass (but who wants to pay for that?!).
