2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Dark amber body with a thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is a caramel, roast toffee. Taste is smooth, hoppy & clean. Enjoyable.

Pours dark black/brown with thin off white head. Taste is slight roast, little cocoa, caramel sweetness, slight spice, hint of vanilla, nutty. Actually a lot going on here. Smooth medium full finish. Actually pretty nice.

It’s definitely watery, not creamy, but it a pretty good and cheap dark malty beer, I think my favorite from Leinenkugel’s.

Looks a lot more flavorful than it actually is. Pretty weak flavor really especially considering how dark this beer is; I’m surprised they got it this dark with such little flavor haha. Watery malts with some very subtle notes of chocolate. Bland.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is a sweet lactose mildly roasted malts. Taste is earthy chocolate, but a little artificial in the taste and no hops to speak of. Palate is thin and disappointing for something billed as creamy.

12 ounce bottle from House of 1000 Brews, New Kensington. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of nutty notes with earthy and caramel notes. The taste is fudge (no kidding), earthy notes, apples, caramel, nuts. Medium bodied. Not bad, but very strange.

12 ounce bottle poured a dark brown, aromas of light roast, and cocoa, flavors are the same, light on palate, not creamy, disappointed and won’t be getting another one of these.

bottle. Poured clear dark brown with a tan head. Roasted coffee aroma. Medium body with an average carbonated texture, finish is dry. Roasted malt flavour almost smokey, a touch sour.
