2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: clear very dark ruby color, thick tan head that fades relatively quickly, leaves some lacing
Aroma: caramel, coffee, chocolate,
Taste: chocolate, deep dark roasted malt, coffee, hint of plum
Palate: not much c02 burn, leaves a bit of bitter aftertaste,
Overall: not a very strong coffee/chocolate taste but it is the predominate flavor by far, ok beer probably wouldn't get it again though

Other people rated this low but I found it to be a great session beer. Velvety with a small roasted malt character.

This was a disappointing dark lager. Was not very creamy and not very tasty. Extreme disappointment all around.

Bottle. Dark brown pour, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt. Bready taste. While smooth, body is light to medium. Not a lot of complexity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown to black with some transparency, with a rapidly diminishing tan head. Tastewise, this one is heavy in the malts, with a vanilla-esque finish. It’s a fine beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice dark color with some beige head. Smells roasty but doesn’t have too much lactic or chocolate character. To its advantage it does finish nicely and overall a decent beer
