Warning! Early amateur rating! Soft palate on this dark beer. Very moderate carbonation. One dimensional dark malt but nice nontheless.

Tasted from a 500mL bottle purchased at Armanetti’s. Pours dark amber with a thin white head that leaves spotty lace. The nose is milk chocolate with darkly roasted malt. The flavor is very malty with milk chocolate, molasses, and hay. The body is fairly light, but somewhat coating with average carbonation and a medium molasses finish.

[Tap] Pours a solid dark brown color with a cream colored head. Cocoa, dark malts and vanilla in the nose. Lots of roasted dark malt in the flavor, with lesser amounts of milk chocolate, sweet molasses, caramel and dusty grains in the nose. Better than expected body, with a rich/full mouthfeel. Creamy and sweet lingering finish. Well made and very easy to drink.

Bottle From Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Pours a dark amber/ brown with a light beige head. Inviting aroma cocoa, nutshells, and german malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of vienna malts with a touch of chocolate and tobacco, countered by a very mild, balancing herbal bitterness. Nutty and grainy finish. Pretty solid example of the style.

Draught at map room. Legit beer appearance. Awesome pour. Dark brown with a towering mountain of head. Toasty, caramel, and light chocolate aroma. Nice caramel and chocolate flavors. Low hops. Very nice balance of toasty malt and sweetness. Medium light body. Nice stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks rateyourpoison for sharing. Pours a deep brown with a small creamy light tan head. Aroma is sweet and chocolate malty, a bit nutty, a touch fruity with some caramel candy notes. Flavor is again very sweet and malt, cocoa and a hint of coffee though there is very limited bitterness. Some dark fruit and a bit of cola. Medium slightly creamy body and a soft carbonation. Tasty dunkel

Pours clear deep brown red with decent brown head leaving some lacing on the glass. Aroma is carame, roasted malts, hay, fruits and some yeast. Flavor is roasted malts, coffe, raisins. Easily drinkable. Tart sweet and crisp on palate. Finishes bitter tart and slightly sweet. Very nice!
