3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can, thanks Ryan. Cola garnet-black, nitro-style frothy tan head without the nitro; big lacing. Aroma has black malt character, with chocolate, the slightest hint of roast and coffee, nutty sweetness, light toffee, yeasty tang. Flavor similar, with a light bitterness; finish is predominantly chocolate and bitter roast. Mouthfeel is also not much past cola; soft, full carbonation borders on fizzy. Seems like a nut brown / black ale hybrid to me. Decent enough beer, I guess, but a bit boring.

Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, nuts and some smoke. The taste was of roasted malts with a touch of sweetness in the finish. Nice.

From tap. Warm amber in glass. Lots of malt centric fun. Full nose with nut and caramel. Flavor is more grainy goodness with a bitter finish. Feels unrefined. Enjoyable.

From a tallboy into a pint glass. Pours a light clear brown with an inch or so of lightish head. Sweet, tinny aroma. Mouthfeel is very, very light. Taste is metallic and bland. Flavors of ice, minerals, metal, light brown sugar, bread and dirt. Meh, pretty lousy.
