12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a barely transparent when held to a light source black with heavy shading of darkened maroon, light carbonation, tan ring around the glass for a head that did lace extremely well. Aroma of a caramel malt, molasses, milk chocolate, and FUCKING BEER!!! Hits the mouth with a high-medium body, malt is extremely tasty with caramel laced within it, middle holds up fine, finish is sweetened light artificially but that does not stop from the enjoyment. Beer. Here. Keep your bait n’ switch Texughtuckyass shit, and give me this. Now. Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Very easy drinking, cannot tell this is 7%. Nice chocolate notes, floral, fruity hints, malty. This is one of the best in the LTD series that I have had. robforbes (2269) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - DEC 9, 2012
pours a clear dark brown with a ruby tint, a small tan head, and some lacing. SSSteve (4006) - - DEC 9, 2012
smell is of some cocoa, roasted malt, and some prunes.
taste is somewhat watery, sweet malt, a slight amount of cocoa, a touch of coffee, and hops. ends a little bitter.
bottle. deep brown with a small beige head. roasty, fruity aromas with nougat and tootsie rolls. flavor blends caramel and chocolate(toostie rolls) with fruity figgy hop character. kind of a big beer at 7% and leaves a warming finish that let’s its presence be known. medium full with a bit too much carbonation. llcooldave (1226) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2012 Dark brown in the glass. Nice coffee and dark cocoa aroma. Flavor is similar to the aroma and the lager yeast gives it a nice crispness. Overall, a tasty brew. Thanks to BarZigKin for sharing!

Appearance: Pours dark brown, letting no light through. Not much of a head, but a ring of tan froth around the edges and a few tan swirls looking down. SudsMcDuff (8523) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Aroma: Roasted malt, slight wet dog, walnuts, chocolate.
Taste: Roasted and toasty malt, spicy hops, a little sour twang in the middle. A touch of coffee. Finishes with long roast and hop spice.

A dark black pour with a raspberry tint. The head is red stained tan and settles to a thin film. The aroma is misty cocoa malt. The flavor is ripe plum and roasty cocoa malt. Soft on the palate and finishes like cherry and.dark chocolate. blutt59 (6585) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2012
bottled, dark brown khaki colored pour with roasted chocolate aroma, flavor is well balanced chocolate , some roasted pecans, cinnamon, good balance and finish kevinator (2800) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Interesting and pleasant. Nice aroma of malt, coffee and a little chocolate. Nice chocolate color with a small head that was gone in a flash. Smooth palate that was a little creamy. The initial taste was of coffee and chocolate malts, not artificial. Later in the beer a bitter and burnt essence came out that was somewhat like licorice. Good but there are ones better.
