3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of dark sweet malt with some coffee. Very dark brown with ruby hilites (under halogen). A beige head that left rapidly. Thinnish mouthfeel. Starts with roasted malt, a bit dry, not so sweet as the malt aroma might suggest. Light coffee notes. Arguably a bit of dark plummish fruit. The finish is dry, and there is a balance of overdone toast by hop.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. A hint of roasted grains and a slightly sweet nose. Very dark beer with a small beige head. The flavor is toasted grains but then disapears to a watery beer. A slight lingering roastiness, but not much else. You'll wish for a bit more flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of douglas88. Pours dark brown with tan head. The aroma is sweet, yummy and inviting. I get dark fruity esters consisting of such things as Concord grape jam and blueberries to go along with some roasty dark malts and a touch of toasty toffee-ness. Nice mix of notes. The taste is moderate and smooth with malt sweetness and grape to sweet berry fruitiness. Midway mild roasted malts surface and run right into the finish. Ends somewhat dry.

Bottlle courtesy of Ibrew2or3.
Pours black with a nutty head. Aroma is light malt roasty and caramel. Taste is the also of light malt, a little hops and caramel. Everything is quite light in taste and this one is a welcome change from the usual pilsner.Good drinkability.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Roasty, nutty malt aroma, with notes of coffee, cola, and maple syrup. Frothy diminishing head on a dark brown liquid. Just less than medium body, rather sweet yet slightly dry, with a hint of sourness. Major flavors are cola, roasted almonds, and maple syrup...it’s remarkably quite like a less sweet Coca-Cola without the buzzing carbonation. Very quaffable, but the sweet cola-like flavor is a bit odd.
