I’ve had this beer both from a bottle and from the tap (at the brewery in Manteo). There’s nothing like a beer right at the brewery, but the bottled version is good as well. It is nearly black but surprisingly smooth. A lot of flavor, but very little after taste. A great beer.

Dark brown pour with tan head. Caramel and roast toffee aroma. Dry and delicate in flavor. Light malt, grassy hop, minimal bittering, hit of roast coffee in the finish. Nice. Thanks dlovell2 for transporting and gifting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (4458) - BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2014
Bottom-fermented dark lager from an American brewpub also brewed under license by Anker Brauerei in Nagold, Germany. Tasted at Delirium Café in Brussels years ago. Aroma of soy sauce, coffee grounds, chocolate, dark fruits, sherry; soft sweetish taste, granular mouthfeel but otherwise thinnish (as expected from a 4.6% ABV lager), mild roasted bitterness in the finish. Seems to hesitate whether it wants to become a Dunkel or a Schwarzbier.

Lutz2jm (264) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Light toasted flavor. Slight sour aroma that is not really noticeable when you are drinking. Drank this from a bottle from Trio in the OBX of NC. Probably would not get this one again.

Nickls (2357) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours nearly black with no head. Slight chocolate, toffee, earth, and fig notes in the aroma. Flavor is very similar, slight sour dark fruit note, toasty finish. Lighter body. Not bad at all.
