Draught > Gingerman. Better than most Rahr beers but thatís not saying much. Seemed to lack flavor. Just tasted sorta bland and the palate was pretty thin too. Nevertheless, it certainly wasnít offensive. Had some sweet roasty flavors. Iíll try again just to make sure itís not better than Iím describing.

Alcohol is well hidden. A good blending. The texture is thick. The body id medium. Has a good finish with a good aftertaste. Pretty good beer.

Reviewed 7/23/2009 (bottle):
Pours a dark reddish brown color body, with a foamy, average creamy off-white head. Malty aroma. Some roasted notes. Watery palate. Some roasted taste. Not bad tasting, a little malty sweet. A little hot.

Deep brown in the glass with a very thin white to tan head. Nice nutty, roasted aroma with maybe a hint of coffee in there too. Flavors on the palate are similar to the aroma. Very nice.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours cola brown with 1 finger of tan head.
S - Milk chocolate, sugary malt, vanilla, roasted malts. Smokey aroma as it warms.
T - Dark caramel, roasted malts, caramelized sugar, bitter dark chocolate, brown toast, nutty yeast, hints of grapes and under-ripened berries. Bittering hops adds earthiness to round off the finish. Citrus comes out on the aftertaste.
M - Moderate carbonation, light side of medium, almost thin body. No alcohol to speak of. The carbonation drops off toward the end.
Warming without the alcohol showing up. Nice cocoa and roasted malts with a solid strain of nutty yeast to glue everything together. The mouthfeel was the weak link but it wasnít a deal breaker. Everything tasted young and fresh. Iím gonna try and out one away for a year or so.

Aroma of roosted malt & coffee. Poured a deep dark brown color with tiny particles floating in the beer matrix. It tasted almost like a stout, but not as strong. A little watery on the palate for me. Overall this is a great local beer that I wish more people got to experience.

The bottle pours thick coffee color with ruby highlights and a light tan dissipating head. I get aromas of sweet chocolate and mild hops. Itís got a roasted flavor with a mild bitter finish. Could be a little thicker but itís good. Iíve rated 100! Woohoo!
