Decent head and jet black body.soft barley aroma. Roasted barley flavour with coffee hints. Weaker on the mouth. Adequate but not exciting.

Dark cola colouring. Thin head. Crisp flavour balanced with molasses. Heavily carbonated, but thin and lacks texture.

On tap. Light roast and faint caramel aroma. Cereal and hay flavours, faint mixed fruit finish. Not great but better than the pale ale.

Pretty tasty lager. Reminds me of a stout just a little lighter in body. Taster is very stoutish with taste of roasted barley some slight coffee notes. Decent and enjoyable

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small bottle, not poured into glass. Distinctive roasted malt flavour with a bit of smoke. Dark chocolate. Malty and slightly bitter. One of the better OK beers I've had.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very dark brown with some light shining through, a large initial beige head that quickly becomes thin and leaves small traces of lace up the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and light coffee(almost a touch sour but just a bit off in general). Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, sour tannin extracted coffee and comes through fairly watery. I remember when I loved this beer in my first days of "Craft Beer".

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark brown pour with minimal head. Aroma isn’t indicative of a dark lager at all. The taste isn’t really either. Minor hints of the things found in a more full profile - chocolates and roasted malts in very thin profile. Not great.
