12 oz bottle. Pours a ruby brown with a medium frothy off white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2009
The aroma is sweet grainy, worty malts with some chocolate.
The flavor is sweet chocolate malts and grains, nuts and a bit of an acidic slightly sour twang. The mouthfeel is light bodied and a little watery.
Overall, lots of raw grainy off notes. Not too good.
On tap at the Durango Tasting Room. Poured a deeper orange color (almost brown) with a small sized off white head. Aromas of roast, some grains and and some caramel. Tastes follow suit. Lacing left on the glass. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Dark. Malt based nose of caramel and some different chocolate variety. Great hop flavor with some biting cascade behind a similar malt flavor. To thin... good idea, average execution. Ratman197 (15620) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle poured a clear dark brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of dark chocolate, carmel, light roastiness, light coffee and light vanilla. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of dark chocolate, carmel and roastiness with a crisp roasty finish. hophead21112 (218) - Louisville, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Clear dark red brown pour with a light tan head, medium retention and nice looking lace. Green apple and a touch of roasted grain on the aroma. Flavor is bland with some carbonation that leads to a slightly roasted grain. Could be more here. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation and no alcohol warmth.

Had at the summit Brewfest & BBQ on 5/16/09. Color is a dark brown with good carbonation and a small tight tan head. Aroma is light with a little roasted malt coming though. Its a lighter medium bodied brew with an easy roasted malt taste and a clean finish. Overall it doesn’t have a lot going on, its just a plain dark lager.

When fresh this beer is a very nice dark lager. IT is not overly sweet and thick like others in the category. Smells somewhat roasty on the nose with some bread and a bit of malt. Pours a reddish brown color with some offish white head that goes away quick. Mouthfeel is a pleasant medium but like many of Durnago’s beers it lacks in the carbonation. Flavor is malty and sweet with some dry roast going on. Some hops are noticeable on the end. When fresh it is a nice offering... Hard to find it this way because it sits in the stores for a long time jb43 (1695) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2009
(bottle). Pours a dark brown color. Medium size tan head. Minimal lacing. Roasted malt aroma. Strong malty taste. Smooth finish. Soft to moderate carbonation. rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2008
Bottle courtesy of avengedpoet. Pours a dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, caramel, coffee. Flavor is caramel, coffee, chocolate, grains. Very watery with a slight metallic tinge in the finish. Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle from the brewery. Pours jet black with little head. Aroma of light dark malts - chocolatey, burnt coffee, etc. No hops to be detected. Taste is very smooth with those light dark malts from the aroma being reflected in the taste. Fairly bubbly, but still pretty easy to drink. Not very interesting.
