Dark red-ish color, coffee and chocolate hits the palate, good winter ale, mild spice, not bitter...not my favorite New Belgium ale, but not bad either.
Enjoy-ability - 7.8 out of 10

355ml bottle in Brisbane. This one has big (lightly milky) chocolate malts on the nose and tongue with a medium smooth palate and sweet biscuity finish. It’s all about the malts for this beer. Goes down easily with a lightish carbonation. Pours deep red-brown with a decent-sized foamy beige-coloured head.

Delicious! Possibly the best black lager I have tried. Goes well on a warm fall day into a cool fall night.

Originally rated on 1/10/08. Pours a nice very dark brown/ black body, the taste was a little toasty, with subtle hints of chocolate. Smooth and a little sweet,it is a little watery though. it still is a really good beer.
