Bottle. Pours a deep brown, nearly black with slightly off white head. Aroma is a slightly fruity roast caramel. The flavor is very light roast caramel. Not bad for a brew that is trying to appeal to the "masses", but not very good, regular guiness stout much better!! jredmond (8204) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark body with light head. Aroma is roast and Cheap malt lager. Mouthfeel is thin. jmulv (336) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Itís nothing special. Pours a dark brown, taste is malty yet bland. Nothing to truly distinguish this beer from the rest. Iíd take a Guinness stout over this any day. JoePeesie (925) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Pours a deep brown with off white head. Nose and taste are more blah than I had hope & expected. I was expecting there to be a deeper malt and possibly roasty back taste. Not a beer I would buy again.

Dark brown mahogany pour into the glass, with an initially wispy head that reduces to spotty lace. The nose is of cereal and a just a hint of dough. Flavors are reductive, roasted coffee essence and just a hint of black cherry. It finishes with a roasted bitter. The mouthfeel is almost seltzery, a tad thin. The active carbonation separates the integration enough to make the brew somewhat out-of-balance. Itís a shame, actually. I wanted it to be a bit better than it turned out.

To quote Ralphie, "it tastes like burning!" Pours dark brown with a thin, fizzy head. Faint grain aroma. Tastes like char (not in a good way) and feels kind of like a mouthful of ashes. Disappointing. boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - MAR 30, 2012

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Pretty much what I expected. It tastes like Extra stout light with a little more of an earthy flavor. Not a bad beer but not a great one either sonnycheeba (5962) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with average, frothy beige head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, figs, raisins, faint earthy hops, sugar, and some funk. Flavor is malt forward followed by unbalanced fruit esters and hops; dry finish. Light/medium body and carbonation with low warmth. brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Pour is cola in color with a thick off-white head. Nose is bland, but a bit roasty. A little bit sour, maybe? Really watery...itís hard to really smell anything. The flavor is just as bad. Itís almost like drinking black water. Just a hint of roasted malt, a tinge of sourness, perhaps a light earthiness, but Iím really stretching for that one. Not sure what the appeal is here.
