3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another selection from my son and Beer on the Wall. Pours a black reddish. Head dissipates quickly with little lacing. Chocolate, roasted, coffee aroma. Pleasant palate. Despite being a dark beer it’s surprisingly light in the stomach. Good summer beer - contrary to notion.
Dark brown/black color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted malt, & some chocolate; Flavor of slight roasted malt, caramel, coffee, chocolate, and light hops; Nicely balanced; Pretty decent lager. geolgau (544) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - SEP 25, 2017
Roasted malts, light watery coffee, a hint of dark chocolate, toasted black bread. Feels nice on the tongue, with a medium-light body which makes it an easy drink. Refreshing, flavorful, malty and roasty. Good beverage. ChadPolenz (1847) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2017

2015 BJCP Category: 2C International Dark Lager
AROMA: Fairly generic lager scent of base malt and not much else. Dark malt is present, but does not come off as roasty or sweet. Virtually no hop character other than a hint of spicy/earthiness. No overt adjunct presence. Clean fermentation. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Deep brown from a distance, though more of a mahogany color overall (13-27 SRM). Clear body. Large tan froth never completely dissipates and laces well. 3/3
FLAVOR: First half of the palette is rather mild with a standard base malt character. Not particularly sweet, but far from dry. Mild dry bitterness with low spicy/earth hop flavor. There is a noticeable roasted malt and coffee flavor as it descends with a light coffee-like aftertaste, though it fades quickly. No adjunct taste. Clean fermentation. 17/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; medium-high carbonation. More smooth than crisp. Not refreshing per se, but quaffable. Despite the name, it's not really sessionable at 5.4% ABV. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Much more flavorful and interesting than your standard pale lager. Very drinkable and exemplifies the style quite well. 9/10
TOTAL SCORE: 42/50

Dark brown color. Medium-sized, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Sweet, malty taste with bitter , roasted notes at the end. Seemed kind of weak and thin. Not bad though.
