Recht nett zu trinken, dabei stellenweise süß und ordentlich in der Schokolade. Leicht herb, süffig und mild. Gegen ein zweites hätte ich kaum was einzuwenden.

cheap (4486) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2015
milky malt aroma. a darker beer. a mild dark beer creamy feel to it. hides alky ok. leaves a slight bitter medicine finish. Going out on a limb I’m going to say its more like mild porter.

Heavier on the malt and lighter on the spice than a typical brown. Flavors of coffee, cereal grains, light cocoa powder, pecans and a hint of smoke and tobacco. Very smooth.
