It’s like the watered-down version of a dark, non-mass-produced beer. It’s aroma is not really too pleasant, its mouthfeel isn’t great, and there aren’t any intense flavors. It doesn’t make me gag, though, so it is, at least, drinkable. Did you expect anything more? If you care enough to rate beer at all, probably not.

From 12 oz can served in pint glass. Big three finger tan head reduces to a thin cap after several minutes. Reasonable amount of lacing. Aroma is on the weaker side but comsists of roasted malts. Taste is lights but smooth with light notes of roasted malts, toast maybe some creamy vanilla like notes. Very smooth finish. Light to medium bodied beer with light to average carbonation. Overall very enjoyable beer. Obviously nothing particularly specially but a very good beer for the money. A good easy drinking well priced staple dark beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Gettysburg Eddie’s in Gettysburg, PA. This is a brown colored beer with a tan head. The aroma is slightly sweet with some coffee and malt notes. The flavor is full of malt and some caramel. A nice black & tan.

Completely off the rails from the beers I’ve been reviewing. Slight caramel note in the aroma. Dark brown to black appearance with a khakis colored head that doesn’t last long. On the heavier side of bitter. Full-bodied beer with a creamy texture. Nothing about this beer is overwhelming. Balanced well. Instead of the lawn mower scale, I will compare this beer to Matthew McConaughey’s performance in True Detective: dark but extremely well-done.

I used to drink this from bottles for a change of pace when I was transitioning to non crap beer. It?s OK by mass market standard.

Bottle. Dark sugar nose, with light roast malt, rather sweet. Dark translucent brown with ruby highlights. Thin sweet dark roast malt, cola, minimal hopping. Thin-medium body. Decent and sessionable, but not very interesting.
