Medium brown pour with chestnut hues. Thin notions of a white head recede quickly, leaving an oily carbonated film behind. Mostly clear with ruby and yellowish highlighting. Aroma is comprised of lightly toasted caramel malt up front. No hint at high alcohol, well masked to say the least. Sugary, interesting. Light spicing, mostly coriander and nutmeg. A little soapy as well. Flavor is sweet and nutty caramel malts, grainy and toasty. Slight tartness, nice bitterness levels throughout. Slightly syrupy palate, too fizzy at points, but an otherwise reasonable carbonation level. Still not a trace of alcohol. An agressive fullness is left behind in a sugar finish. Pretty good balance here, other than in the palate.

Dahrk ruby color with no real head to speak of. Malty aroma without much else. Thick yet watery consistency. Taste of nuts and hints of choc. & spicy hops. A finish that tries really hard to be bitter enough. Ugly pug is better. C-

Decent for Rahr, but not worth trading for. Smooth sweetish taste, that comes close to a strong dark. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
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 wasn’t a deal breaker. Everything tasted young and fresh. I’m gonna try and out one away for a year or so. Serving type: bottle 11-19-2011
