Looks can be deceiving. Pours a nice deep brown with a thin white head. Aroma is like rusty stale water & flavor is non-existent. Finishes clean. Outside of the aroma, it's non offensive & basically a whole lotta nothing.

pours a dark ruby brown with a small tan head. There is a slight toasted malt flavor followed by some creaminess and a light sweetness. It ends with a mild bitterness.

Thanks Marshall, for your beer-by-mail contribution to our "balcony time." Opaque dark brown, quick drop-to-rim head, thin streaks of lace. Taste is dark malt with a small shot of black coffee entering midway through. Carbonation shows late to help balance. Easy to drink, but not memorable.

Can. Roasty malt, light chocolate aroma - rather porterish. Mahogany with a large tan head. Chocolate and light coffee malt - reminds me a little bit of creamy CoCo Wheats. Medium creamy body, soft carbonation. Very nice.

Pours a dark cola brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is dry with a hint of coffee. Flavor is very rich. Good coffee notes. Full flavor, nice mouthfeel. Better than I expected.

Can. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aromas are roasted malt, coffee and a little bit of wheat. The wheat is really muted and this remind more of a porter than a what ale. The bready flavors are there, but never overwhelming. I like this one.

Dark root beer colored brew that settles in sheets before forming an enormous light brown head. Nose of sweet roasted malt with hints of cocoa, but overall pretty non-descript. Taste is a little sweet up front with a bit of toasted malt, which then develops into a slight bitterness. The overall flavor is quite mild, but not boring. Even better, it improves on repeated sips. Quite enjoyable.
