Pours an almost pitch blacks with thick tan head, minimal lacing. Aroma of roasted (almost burnt) malt, mild coffee, and not a lot else. Flavor matches and is really thin. I really wanted to like this, but I could have mistaken this for Guiness.

Enjoyed at my buddies place in Milwaukee, WI prior to seeing a band I haven't seen in over a decade. Drank from bottle directly, nice and malty, easy drinking, flavorful, overall solid.

After initial pour and the creamy head dissipates has a dark cola appearance. Aroma is roasted malts and taste is the same. A nice beer, not complex but a nice dark lager. Will drink again.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 DRAFT at the Chalet in beautiful rural Southern Wisconsin....a not quite black color with a thick head that may be more the lack of draft talent in our bar maid. Sweet / caramel in the initial taste...smooth through-out....very nice for a Friday night fish fry....will be back.

Pours a very dark brown almost black color with tan head. Roasted malts on the nose, pretty much it; follows onto the palate. Very creamy texture on the palate.

Cousin bought this for a cookout this past weekend. Dark color, like a very dark cola. Aroma is lightly roasted malt notes. Flavor wasn’t really creamy, but was a pretty decent light roast - reminds me of a better version of Michelob Dark. Could drink this again.
