Pours dark brown with very thin lacing. Aroma is rich caramel chocolate, slightly earthy. Medium sweet taste. Roasted malts dominate the taste with the same earthy raw flavor. Overall good aroma and flavor. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015

Dark pour, thin with no head to speak off. Intense flavor for such a thin and low alcohol beer, chocolate malts mostly with mild hops. Best drunk at room temp. Great story on it as well.
