Pours dark brown with a medium off white head. Nose is roasted malt and coffee. Taste is malty and nutty, maybe even a little smoke. Not much bitterness, nice and easy to drink.

Bottle. Brown, of course. Roasty nutty malt. Bit of caramel, some more nuts and hint of citrus. Mouthfeel is light and bit watery in the back. I’m disapointed with palate. Aroma is quite interesting tough. My first ’quality’ beer after coming to US :)

Brown. Slight opaquacity. Good viscosity. Minimal uniquity. Certainly enjoyable and drinkable, yet lacks character. Not a whole lot better than Newcastle. Maybe it’s better on tap...

Little head on top of an actually rather beautiful ruby red/brown beer. Aroma is very malty with a bit of roast. Flavor is not terribly impressive with chocolate being the standout. Medium-light body makes it more drinkable.

Purchased at The Fresh Market, Greenville, NC Inviting smell; tastes heavy but the body isn’t. Delicious.

Middle of the road beer to me. Decent flavor, decent smell, decent appearance, nothing stands out but nothing detracts. Would drink again.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is light and sweet with a hint of roast and chocolate. Palate has medium body and above average carbonation. Flavor has malt, chocolate, nuts, caramel, with the malt dominating, but all understated. Flavors quickly vanish with some light hops on the finish. There’s nothing particularly surprising in the flavor, but this is pleasant and easy to drink.
