3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black pour with reddish highlights. There’s a fizzy tan head that leaves a bit of lacing. The aroma is interesting. Chocolate and tobacco. The palate is rather thin with some bright carbonation. Burnt chocolate is the only way I can describe the flavor. There’s not much bitterness. Not a bad beer, but not too exciting.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Grains and toasted malts with a sweet pale finish. Jet black with a thin beige head. Molasses and dark sweet malts. Date and prune. Odd discrepancy between nose and taste. Nose too sweet and taste if burnt molasses.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark, opaque brew with a yellowish head that dissipates quickly. Minimal head retention or lacing. Slightly sour aroma. Smoky taste that is smooth, but didn’t make much of an impression ... The taste is not something that would have me recommending this beer although I would drink it in the future if someone gave me one. Pleasant mouth feel -- creamy.

Very nice and thick. The beers from this brewery are classy. Although I thought I had it before. They are thick but easy to drink.

This lager is distinctive, much more flavorful than most lagers, with a deep color and an average head. Delicious malt taste is well-balanced with the hops. It is clearly a step above most of the Shiner beers that I have enjoyed.

Mild aroma. A good looking clack beer with no head. It has a mild malty flavor that goes down smooth.
