Bottle; poured a cola brown. Aroma of roasted wood, earth and caramel. Flavor was all over the place. More pilsner elements. Harsh on the palate.

Well, Iím not a fan. This is worse than advertised. The bottle looks cool, so it earns a few points for originality. Itís a black, clear pour. The aroma is offensive, and the tastes is disappointing, itís definitely a pils mixed with a porter, but bad ingredients, or at least an uninspired mix. Guinness and Bass is a sensational combination compared to this. Shouldnít be mixed in the bottle at all in my opinion.

had never ahd this and was in a crappy store in a great beer town (Denver) but this was the only single even interesting. itís blah; but better than the overall score. it is what it says it is a porter watered down by a pils. kinda of a weak brown ale but no issues. at least average beer

I like this beer. A fun, drinkable beer that gives a heavier flavor without sacrificing refreshment. Moderate head, pretty ruby-colored. Bit of smoke with a crisp finish. I like the jug with cap as I can pour myself a glass at a time as needed. Interesting stuff.

Has an okay barley aroma, and a boring amber body with no head - but an extra point in the appearance department for the fancy jug bottle. Flavour is a simple mix of nuttiness and caramel, with an averagely watery palate. Dry finish, however. Itís a decent afternoon session beer, the whole quart will disappear purty quick and then youíll be looking for something a little more challenging.

32 ounce jug. Pours a reddish-brown with a three inch light tan head that slowly fades. Taste is of roasted malt, smoke, caramel, chocolate, fruit, pine, hops and some resin. Cleaner aroma, that is similar. Has a lighter, creamy body. An interesting beer that is full of flavor and drinkable. Also, kudos on the cool bottle!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black pour with a khaki head. The nose is pretty bland and watery. Some roasted malt notes, slight sourness, grain sweetness, and maybe a hint of coffee. The flavor is like sour, watered down coffee. Roasted malt, grainy sweetness, and maybe a slightly metallic finish.
