Black pour with a tan head. I get a lot of toasted malt and chocolate in the aroma as well as some light ash and chocolate notes in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Chudwick (2704) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 18, 2013
12oz bottle - pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is roasted malts and caramel. Sips adds coffee. Mildly sweet with medium roast bitterness. A lot of flavor for a low ABV. Metallic aftertaste. Bottle could be converted to a compass if you had a floating magnetized needle.

Better out the tap than in the bottle - still a very clean black lager - reminiscent of an upper scale session black. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hfmejias (1229) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown (cola like), nice off white head and very decent lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, coffee and some chocolate. Taste is quite sweet and malty but with a slight bitterness, nice beer, quite enjoyable.

kevintenney (4) - Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2013 does not count
12 oz can into glass. Lots of roasted malt in aroma and flavor. Very thin mouthfeel. Almost no head. I wish these guys could make some bigger stuff. This would translate well with a higher ABV, but at 4% it doesn’t do it for me.

Handypaul (394) - - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours very dark reddish with almost no head and marginal lacing. Aroma of roasted chestnuts and faint burnt wood. Medium to light body, kinda waterty, taste of roasted barley, lively carbonation and a brief bitter finish. Not so hot.
