"this is THE macrobrew of dark beers. while it’s better than their other stuff, i’m not sure why they bothered. priced closer to the macros than an mgd, it’s just not worth it."

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark brown. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Fizzy as could be, and not the cleanest flavor, but otherwise not too shabby.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Dark brown, very dark, minimal head, tannish, spotty lacing.   Roasty nose, slight lactose like sweetness.   Lightly roasted malt flavor, somewhat coffeeish, sweet to start but a tad dry on the finish.   More of an ale than a lager, at least to me.   Hop presense right up front, dies down slowly.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Semi-sweet lactose like finish on a bed of roasted malts with just a smidgen of hop bitterness.   Not half bad.

Dark amber color, light tan head. Nose of light chalky roast and fruit. The flavor is light and sweet, some raost & fruit. Fairly boring mouthfeel though. Finishes light and smooth. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A dark beer with a hinkt of red when held to the light. Poured little head and had a light malt taste and mild sweet hoppy taste. An OK beer, but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This has a pretty good roasty creamy aroma. Flavor is better than the rest of the H.W. beers as well. Some roast, nuttiness, malt and cream. Actually a pretty good beer.

This is new and out for 2005 and wow this was a great beer. I liked the flavor, aroma and the overall tones this ber brought out. A special limited edition I think they got right. It is a dark winter beer with great overall taste to drink. Good Job I will try another. Beer SNOBS will like this beer.

Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Sweet malt aromas with a hint of hops. Sweet roast flavor with a little bitterness. This is one of my favorite cheap beers.

Inexpensive at $9.99 a 12-pack. Poured a dark brown with a soild off-white head and good lacing. Nose of roasted malts, and some chocolate. Mouthfeel good and rich. Flavor of chocolate and roasted malts. Good clean finish. Ver good for the price.
