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.

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.

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.

This dark lager poured a deep dark red colour with a creamy, tan coloured head. Scents include metal, lightly toasted malts and a little bit of spice. First sip was quite creamy with flavours of roasted malts and caramel. Finish is burnt and lightly sweet.

"a surprisingly good, roasty, brew...from a fairly unimpressive brewery. i’d recomend this one to anyone looking for a good, dark beer on the lighter side.
