Not as dreadful as I’d anticipated. The roasted malt comes through well enough, but a flat bitterness lent by the hops (extract?) and a distracting metallic note kills any significant pleasantness.

12 oz bottle for 25 cents from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits in downtown Muscatine. Black appearance with a nice, lasting tan head and light lacing. Aroma of dark, nutty malts, chocolate, coffee, light vanilla and light roast. Similar flavor, adding a light sweetness and a mild earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with a creamy feel and a light dry finish. Not bad overall.

GIJOE (807) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Dark with small off-white head. Nose is chocolate. Light body with a lot of carbonation for a dark beer, chocolate flavors. Decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very nice beer, although I was surprised to see how it was classified. This tastes like a milk stout to me and a very decent one at that

ANZUShophunter (50) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2015
On tap at Brown Jug, A-squared. Hint of molasses in the aroma. Smooth drinking with chocolate overtones. Very sessionable. Surprised to find it’s classed as a Vienna Lager.

Beerathon (1491) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Actually pretty tasty for what it is. Roasted malts, a bit of sweetness almost like lactose from a milk stout. A bit thin, but it is a swarzbier, so understandable. Dark cola color with cocoa head.

Nice dark beer perfect for MLK weekend. Taste similar to a Guinness but not as thick and strong

Pours a dark red with a medium khaki head. Aromas of malt and coffee with some chocolate. Strong pilsner taste and aroma also. Thin on the palate. Overall just an ok beer.

HIGHB4LL (823) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: finger light khaki head, light lacing, dark brown color, clear. Aroma: molasses, earthy, pilsner notes, floral hops. Palate: medium-light body, average carbonation, thin oily texture. Taste: sweet chocolaty malt, into light fruity sweet, into light dark chocolate bitterness with floral notes. Overall, different, enjoyable, texture is not too enjoyable, slightly cloying.
