3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours reddish brown with a brown head. The aroma has a roasted malt character with a touch of dark chocolate and smoke. The taste has roasted malt and a bit of bitter chocolate. Best brew so far on this flight.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

Bottle courtesy of my parents. Pours a rather dark brown, a crimson hue, clear, under a medium to large beige white head. Big roast and cocoa on the nose, malt and sweetness, a touch papery like the other one from them. Medium-bodied, roast, a touch of sweetness, a bit empty and grainy, vague hints of chocolate. A bit of cocoa, nutty.
