COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A: The pour is a dark brown color with a short lived tan head. S: Not a very appealing nose on this beer. Burnt malts and a definite acidity, presumably from the dark grains. A bit of a butter aroma, too. T: A mild, mellow roast flavor along with some almost pleasant notes of creamy milk chocolate. Unfortunately, a fair amount of acidity and some metallic notes, especially on the finish. M: The body is light to medium with a fairly light carbonation. D: Nothing about this beer really did it for me. The nose was certainly not appealing and the flavor wasn’t really any better.

Tmoney99 (10986) - 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.

hopscotch (9388) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2010
Can… Pours dark and sits black in my glass with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The nose is roasted and a touch lactic. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced, but bland and uninteresting with light acidity. Crisp, mildly tangy finish.

GT2 (8691) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 7, 2012
12oz can. Deep brown pour with small tan foam to a little layer. Super sweet nose with vegetal DMS and big black olive. Taste is tangy, over carbonated, dry wood shavings, vegetal oddities. Powdery, mealy apple palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2012
This beer pours a dark brown color with a medium thin tan head that evaporates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and slight hops. Light body with a slight vegetal character and flavors of toasted malt and a bit of earthy hops. The finish is short and leaves a overripe fruit aftertaste. Below average overall.

crossovert (7745) - Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Another experience with craft beer in a can which sadly can’t be recycled for homebrewing. Pours into my pinta dark brown/black. It looks mega stout like. It also has a small foamy tannish/off-white head tat leaves some lacing. Smell is a mix of dark malts and sugar, namely brown sugar. There is a hint of nuttiness and not much hops. Tastes roasty, nutty, dark, with some can taste in the first few sips and hints of chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is pretty good, it is light, but not watery, it helps this beer to go down really smooth. That being said, it is a bit too light, seems like a good summer session beer but nothing too amazing flavor wise. Overall it is a highly drinkable brew, nothing I would grab again probably, but worth a try at least. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 01-07-2010 23:26:26

12 oz can. thanks clint! pours a nearly opaque black with rubied edges. no head or lace. mild coffee and campfire nose, but you kind of have to work to find it. creamy medium body, goes a little bit watery in places. some coffee and roast on the mid palate, but very subdued. mild roasty finish.
