3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in a Kings pint glass. Stunning visual pour with dark red-brown crystal clear body topped with big head that fell fast. Aroma of roasted coffee and toffee. Mouthfeel was clear and crisp with a touch of maltiness and burned sugar flavors. No discernable hops flavor in bitterness or aroma. A delight on a hot day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a lovely brown-red black with a lasting medium-sized smooth and creamy tan head. Good lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet of chocolate malts and vanilla. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter with plenty of malt character. Light to medium bodied and somewhat dry. Smooth and satisfying, pleasantly quaffable. Not a pretentious beer, but one whose company is easily entreated and around whom you can comfortably unwind.

Canned sample. Dark brown in colour with some hints of red. Aromas of pilsner-like sulfur, toffee, and both pale and dark roast malts. Flavors are mild, yet crystal clear: more toffee and dark roasted malt, dry powdery bread, and a bit of coffee. Light bodied and quaffable. Very classy indeed.
