3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
What a fantastic concept. This is a dark LAGER. Most of the flavor of a porter, but without the heaviness and a lot less bitter. I like porters, but sometimes you have to have a change. I will be buying more of this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A $4 or $5 bottle had at Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.
Appearance: Ruby. Head dissipates pretty quickly. Only a bit of lacing.
Smell: Malt. Roasty character to deem this a "dark" lager. Nothing especially interesting, but it smells nice.
Taste: Like the smell. A lot like it. A slight sort of coffee or chocolate flavor comes off as well, but it’s in the background. Hey, I guess some roasting will do that to a beer, eh? Fairly high carbonation which is expected for the style. A pretty nice beer. Simple tasting sort of beer that you can drink without feeling compelled to think too much about what you’re tasting. I’m not the only one who does that... right...?

A very dark color for lager. Not too much flavor with this one. Not bad though.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Dark amber brew with pale off white head, very good head retention. Aroma of toast, hints of teaberry and grass. Taste is sweet roasted malt and toast at the start finishing with more toast, teaberry, too little bitter and too much sweet. Ponderous, too sweet, and not all that tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light nuttiness, herbal, and roasted/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roast/bready malt notes with some light hop presence; and good strength. Taste of toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Light earthy/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of roast/bready malt with light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice schwarzbier style. All around good complexity and robustness of roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
