Bottle: A beautiful dark brown pour with auburn highlights and topped by a finger of creamy beige head. Aroma is malty... sort of sweet, but nothing more stands out. Maybe some light toffee and chocolate. The flavor is where this brew thrives: Sweet and malty with citrus, caramel, and chocolate. Earthy with just a bit of citrus hops. Just a small amount of roast and nuts. Rich, but increadibly easy drinking. Pairs well with Reese’s Pieces.

This was a definite winner. Pours a dark brown with a quickly diminishing off-white head. Roasted hops and caramel flavor with a nice chocolaty caramel finish. The best schell brew by far!

From a 3+ year old bottle my dad had tucked in the back of his beer fridge. Had no aroma left. Taste was primarily of roast but had a light enough mouthfeel and low bitterness so it wasn’t overwhelming. Also some sweetness which made it go down better than I expected. However, nothing to write home about. Was pretty flat which I assume was due to the age of the bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color is a dark mocha brown. Thin light tan head the fizzles down quickly.
Smell is of dry roasted malts and slight hints of chocolate. Taste is very similiar, very malty. Hints of dark chocolate also.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Goes down nice.
This is an easy to drink beer for it being dark. Also, it only has 5.1% so you can enjoy a few of these.
Serving type: bottle

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a thin off-white head. Mild nose of chocolate malt and maybe some dark fruit. Medium bodied, rich chocolate malt flavor, and a little carbonation poking through. Could drink a bunch of these.
