2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark red-brown with a thin tan head. The taste and aroma are of caramel, roasted malts and is kind of smokey. One of my more favorite beers as it is very easy to drink and is rather inexpensive in my area.

Now I am just shocked this is made by Full Sail. Otherwise a copy of Blue Boar.

Odd beer. It looked good, poured with a very dark amber colour, and came with a nice ivory head; decent lacing with this one. Aroma was difficult to discern; there was an aroma but I could not suss out what it was. Not unpleasant, just ’there’. Taste and mouthfeel were acceptable but not remarkable. Just a so-so beer, but at least drinkable at a proper price.

I can’t believe Full Sail brewed this beer. Tastes like they took their most bland brew and poured in a dollop of blackstrap molasses. Looks good, nice head, sweet, malty, and no real character. Had no problem pouring the last third down the drain. Life’s too short to drink this brew.

12oz bottle: pours dark brown with minimal tan head, almost no aroma with slight bit of malt coming through, flavor is not like a dark beer at all, has very little flavor and just a hint of roasted malt, nothing to bad but lacks flavor.

This is the darkest Weinhards has? A little disappointing on the coloring, but still a pretty good brew. I’d still take a Full Sail Porter over this though...

Actually some real malt apparent in the aroma--amazing for a macro-product...Color a clear brown with a better-than-average macro-head...drizzled lace...Flavor is sufficiently malty to immediately recommend it over 90% of macro-lagers...Hop-top provides bite, along with carbonation that is a bit excessive...finish is slightly dry, slightly tangy...Overall, a very respectable mainstream product at a good price...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from New Seasons - This beer pours very dark black with a rich white head. The aroma is complex for a lager, although there is that hint of a dive-bar’s carpet smell. The roasted malts and hops are blended quite well. This is a very solid beer if you want something a little less than a porter.

I’m a stout lover, and still think this is fairly decent. The palate is nice, the flavor is dark, and lager like, but a hell of a lot better than an american standard. Give me this one again.
