12 oz. Clear, deep mahogany with a lasting ring of foam. Mild aroma of toffee, dark cherry, and a hint of roast coffee bean. Taste is light coffee with slightly tart cherry and caramel. Light body is too fizzy, but well balanced.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is like a porter blended with a lager. It has chocolate and coffee notes but also toasted malt and grassy hops. The appearance is light brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a grainy taste. The palate is average. Overall a lightly better than average beer, fine as something new to try but thats about it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear brown color. Aroma is mainly of malts, hops, and some slight chocolate. Flavor is pretty much the same with a little roastiness and caramel. Leaves a roasty malt finish. This is much lighter on the palate than it originally looks like in the glass.

3/4 pint bottle, 4.2% a/v
Pours a near coca-cola dark, with a thin tan head. Aroma is malty and caramel. The taste is sweet and could use a bit more hops, but overall very well done. Palate is a bit sweet but by no means overbearing. A good intro to darker beers.

Bottle. Poured brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma of molasses and a light backing of toasted malt. The flavor found an initial milk chocolate, the mellowed out to toasted malt. Light to medium body and very subdue overall.
