3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice little dark brew. A bit of chocolate malt with a light bittering malt. Well balanced and a good little session brew, but nothing special at all. Light roast, toasted grain malts...thats about it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours almost black in color with a vigorously poured finger of light beige head that leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is roasted grains and coffee with hints of chocolate. Taste is roasted coffee and earthy hop bitterness with a light chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with modest carbonation leaving a nice tingling sensation on the tongue. A quality brew that would have been great except for an undesirable aftertaste as it warmed.

500 ml can. very dark brown to light black colour. some roast and chocolate aroma but it has a slight hint of smog or something manufactured as well. some roast on the palate, medium bodied at best, has a certain light sweetness and chocolate. It’s a good guzler but not without it’s faults.
