Not so dark. Lots of carbonation, but overall a better lager than the other mediocre popular ones (ahem: Bud, Miller and so)

Clear copper appearance with a large tan head and nice lacing. Subtle aroma of caramel malts set in a briar patch. Smooth, earthy, moderately sweet taste. Medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation that leads to a short lived finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Aroma is a dark, sour malt. Appearance is a medium bronze with a little head. Taste is a brown. That's about it. Palate is even. Overall, a lacking beer. Expected more.

The smell on this is a bit off, but I like this more than most lagers. I'm scared that they call this their "darkest beer." Color wise it is dark, but taste wise it is nothing. Invest in a stout, Backpocket.
