2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 10-13-2010 (Bottle) This beer when poured displays a medium sized very, very fizzy tan head that mostly diminishes, semi-transparent/semi-opaque reddish brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and caramel. The taste is lightly acidic, roasted malt and chocolate. The palate is smoth and thin. This is a light-medium bodied beer. This beer is easy to drink due to the thin texture. There is not a lot going on with this beer. It is one of those "take it or leave it" type of beer.

3/16/2010. From bottle. Poured black with a tan head. Roasted malt aromas with dark fruit and caramel. Very yeasty flavors which dominated too much. I didn’t really care for this one.

Bottle with keith. Poured dark brown with small white head. No lace. Lots of sweetness, roast, syrup, milk chocolate, soy sauce, tofee, and sugar full body. Doesn’t seem like a lager.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. Aroma is toffee, toasted malt and some light smoke. The flavor is similar with some roasted malt and chocolate, as well as a hint of sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
10/06/2010: McSorley’s Irish Black Lager... Aroma: Cocoa and oats. Appearance: Really nice pour; deep chocolate brown color with a reddish hue; mostly opaque, ample carbonation; thick, dense, and long-lasting 2-finger head of tan-colored foam; thick lacing. Flavor: Dry, roasty malt; molasses in the middle with a slight sweetness; coffee-like/light char in the finish. Palate: Medium-full; thick and creamy, but extremely smooth; filling; feels nitro induced. Overall: Flavorful and enjoyable; under-rated.
12 fl. oz. bottle from Party Town in Florence, KY. Rating #210 for this beer.

Tickers gotta tick I guess. This is as expected average watery lightly toasty lager without much going on. Some burnt hay and metal in there. Thin and meh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle served in a pint glass.
A - Pours a very dark brown with a hefty mocha head that has pretty good staying power.
S - Dry roasted barley, toasted brown bread, mild caramel and cocoa.
T - Roasted malts, brown bread crust, mostly dry but some sweetness is mixed in as well. Faint cocoa comes through and the finish is dry with a bready aftertaste
M - Moderate carbonation, coarse at times, light bodied, dry finish.
Texture was a bit off but overall pretty solid for the style. Nothing fancy but a solid session beer.
Serving type: bottle
