Robust and smooth, this full-flavored lager is exceptionably drinkable and pitch black in color.

This is nice. Some light but adequately roasty chocolate flavor. A surprisingly thick beer for the flavor and alcohol content. Good.

Pours black, khaki head with nice lacing to bottom. Little smoky, roasty and some plum on the end of the nose. Taste is clean, smoke is there but not overwhelming, nice creamy mouthfeel. Amazing this beer has so much going on for 4%

Great beer but it could be some more ABV. Nice dark colour and head. The carbonate could also been increased. Overall ok but not more. Wonderful label though! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is sweet toffee, coffee and milk chocolate. Appearance is dark mahogany reddish black. Taste is caramel chocolate coffee sweetness with a hint of nutty roasty smoke. Palate is medium light. You can tell this is a small beer but still with some body. Overall an impressive small beer. Large complex flavor and quite drinkable. One of the best low gravity beers Iv had.

Dark with a thick light tan head. Light roasted aroma with a sugary sweetness. A bit watery for me but with a pleasant chocolate flavor.

Pours black with a decent creamy looking head, poor head retention but good lacing. Smells sweet and roasty some caramel some chocolate and coffee. Smells delicious. Sweet and roasty taste, some roasted barley some chocolate malt. Palate is a little watery but overall a good mouth feel. This is a good one

From the bottle this pours pitch black, crimson edged and with a good inch of light tan foam which fades pretty quickly. The aroma is a touch of spicy, chocolately, pale roasty goodness. Tastewise, chocolate comes to the fore, followed swiftly by a toasty nuttiness, almost like nutella spread on whole wheat toast. Nice smooth finish and medium bodied, lovely.

So, i avoided this one like the plague for a while just because of the word "lager"..Until last night..finally grabbed one in a mixed sixer..very glad i did. Very nice roasted malt character especially for a 4% beer..nice hops in the background..no lager here. All in all i could drink this regularly. Nice offering!
