Don't let its looks deceive you. Though it may resemble a porter or a stout, this is a light bodied ale with a pleasant hint of molasses. Don't be afraid of the dark.

Roasted nutty aroma hint of vanilla sweetness. Dark brown pour fleeting tannish foam islands. Roasty and nutty, dry with an earthy hop character. Smooth and easy to drink light lingering bitterness. Decent.

12oz can, thanks scrizzz. Cola brown with loose off white head. Nose is roasted nut, malt, coffee and some sweet vegital notes. Flavor is light nut, sweet roasted malt, metallic and stewed veggies. Not overly offensive just not very clean or well put together.

Tmoney99 (13609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2010
MBG Winterfest 2010. Poured dark brown with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Average for style brew.

beernbourbon (1558) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Can. Pour is clear dark dark brown with small off white head. Aroma is roasted malt, faint coffee, light spice, and distant hop. Flavor is nice roasted malt, light coffee, faint rye-like component, and a crisp finish. I liked it, a bit thin on the palate but otherwise solid.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Dark pour with some streaks of head. Slight vegetable aroma, with a hint of chocolate. Flavor really isnít there. Maybe some molasses and nuts. Mouthfeel is very light. This beer is like the dark version of coors light, but not as bad as that sounds.

OK, this stuff is good. Not great. Much lighter taste than the hue would imply. But I would definitely slam some of these if I had some in front of me right now. I donít so I canít. In these troubled times our age-old friend Blatz is always there for you, so if I were you (Iím not) thatís what I would stick to. Think about it.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark malts, light nuts and grains. Taste of dark malt, light toffee and nuts. So-so.

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Pours black to a very dark brown, Tan head goes fast. the aroma of yeast hits me first with a slight nuttyness not much aroma. Very light taste but the commecial description already knows it is light tasting. it seems that I like the appearance of all beers.

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Can. Pours a black with brown hue, thick creamy tane head, lots of lacing, very thin head is retained for most of drink. Aroma is of roasted malt, smoke, grain, molasses, caramel, and dried dark slightly tart fruit. First few sips were very pleasant and originally I had this rated higher, but as I finished this beer, it started to wear on me quickly. Drinkable, but just something is a bit off. Not bad, but good would be an overstatement.
