Scipio (756) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a medium beige head. Aroma is malty, has mostly chocolate, some caramel, along with raisin notes. Upon tasting, I still get a dominant chocolate flavor as well as the caramel. I also get some fruity tartness as well. I believe apple and a little bit of cherry. It is a little sweet. The aftertaste is mostly those fruity impressions. Light to medium in body, much more than you would expect for such a light beer. More thin texture. This is balance well. There is a lot more here than I would expect for something this week. Its definitely worth a try.

tightslice (507) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Location: Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA
Appearance: Dark brown cola
Aroma: Roasted malts, coffee, soy sauce, slight smoky beef jerky, briny olives
Taste: Burnt coffee, charcoal
Overall: Would have liked the fullness of the aroma to linger long enough on the palate, turns too ashy too quickly.

Decent considering the low abv would have though it a porter at blind tasting decent chocolate notes and some roastiness.

Itís lower abv lets it down a bit imo. Yeast derived aromas, some leather, olive and brown sugar notes detected with a watery mouth feel. Ok for a mid strength.

Bottle. Very dark brown with beige head that fades fast. Aroma is very light roasted malt. Flavour is also light roasted malts, chocolate but a little thin, little watery. Good bitter balance, though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love this beer, 3.4% but still decent body, Grainy roasty dry chocolate dominates the flavour and itís awesome! Blends wonderfully with the hops, well balanced, and very smooth finish. A classic English dark mild.
