Bottle from Party Source.
Poured clear brown color with a large frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate dark toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
My expectations where met with an above average version of this style.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark brown/amber color with a beige head. Slightly roasted, sweat aroma. Taste was for me at least a little metallic and a little watery. It really kind of let me down. There were some roasted malts and caramel notes, but ultimately, this was not a very fun beer to drink for me.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep amber brown with a tall, creamy light tan head. Light roasted malt notes, a little euro lager, light caramel and molasses in the nose. Medium carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel. Malt sweetness, light roasted notes, caramel, and brown sugar on the palate. It has an interesting dryness that makes you want to take another drink. A light, pleasing bitterness on the back end. Short finish with decent lacing left. Not overly complex but nice and a real pleasure to drink.
