Almost the same coloration as the pale ale on tap....deep red if held to the light, dark brown/black if looked at with no direct light. Very roasty smelling, taste is the same. Roast/light chocolate/nuts/caramel. The first few days this was on tap it was not very good but as the end of the batch neared, it seemed to take on a better flavor profile. Not sure why. Mouthfeel is just about non-existent. This one is a bit disappointing compared to the other dark beers they usually rotate on tap, but still a good sessionable beer if out on the town with friends.

Pours a deep mahogany color but slightly transparent. Decent malt profile of caramel and chocolate malt. Slight bitter metallic hop finish. All of it comes in a little flat. I would think you could add a little more of everything and get a more full bodied beer.

Growler shared by Ryan (thanks!) at the RBSG Grand Tasting. Poured slightly hazy dark amber with a near white yellow brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was dark grains with a bit of caramel and grassy notes. Flavor had some more smoke combining with some roasted malts and grassy notes.

Travlr (15635) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Almost black, thin beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of chocolate strup with a bit of pine. Taste is bitter chocolate added to lager. I’m not sure the combo really works.

KUEric (888) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 21, 2006
A malty aroma with not much else n the nose. Pretty much everything is a little onesided. Dark with no head whatsoever to speak. Not the best beer they make. For lack of a better word, it was very british in everyway.
