Dark brown color; poor head. Some aroma of caramel, roasted malt, cereals. Strange flavor, like a mild and sweetish rest of coffee. Below expectations.

Sample at the Texas Beer & Brats tasting 10/11/2009. The beer is a dark brown color with a thin light beige head that recedes to a film eventually. Roasty malt aroma with notes of nuts and hops. Medium, smooth body with flavors of roasted malt and nuts, hops and a bit of chocolate. The finish is roasty with a lingering malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12oz). Courtesy of my secret santa. Almost opaque deep ruby-brown with an average fizzy-foamy diminishing off-white head. Nice oily sweet roast malt aroma, nutty, cola-ish, some chocolate and peat, decent pungent hops. Taste is quite roasty, coffee/chocolate and earthiiness, decent hops but a little too much cola sweetness in the finish. Average body, a little over-carbonated, sweet finish - not bad.
