4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2004 Surprisingly good. Black and totally opaque. Small tan head. Smoky, toasty aroma. Full and rich, it has a burnt toast, coffee, and some dark chocolate flavors, too. Well made and impressive. Sampled at the Great Atlanta Pub Crawl, 2004.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample glass, RateBeer Southeastern Gathering. Dark chocolate, oats, espresso, molasses aroma. Slightly chalky. Deep black body with a nice and lasting tan head. A little thin on the flavor (think Bert Grant’s). Sweet with a nice roasty bitterness. Not as much hops as I would like. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: a pretty good offering from a typically underwhelming brewer.

I was quite impressed with Max Lagers. This one sloooowly poured a dark black with a tan head. Very thick bodied. Flavor was chocolate, coffee, mocha, and oatmeal. Yet another great beer on the Atlanta pub crawl!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a tan head. This is very full bodied but still seems thin in the flavor. Somewhat oily mouthfeel. Nicely hopped. A nice beer.
