Pour is a big black with a tan head. Mild coffee, toffee and bread smells. Taste is similar, not too strong or anything, but no real depth to it

Nothing wrong with this beer. Well brewed and a great example of the style I think. It is how they say.. "Deep nutty flavour". Berkeley Trader Joea

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Trader Joe’s. Aroma is strong roasted malts, bordering on burnt, with notes of chocolate. Appearance is clear, dark brown with reddish tinge, fair sparkle, finger-width foamy beige head with fair retention and minimal lacing. Taste is mainly sweet roasted malt, toffee with hint of hazelnut and ash; mild bitter balance. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, average carbonation and dry finish. Overall, some decent complexity for a not-so-complex style. Better than expected and at a great price.

Bottle. Dark brown color. Aroma is a mix chocolate malt and toffee. Body and flavor is on the thin side. Taste is mild chocolate, hints of nuts and sugar. This a cheap beer that is not harsh, this is just ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Trader Joe in Vegas. Pours a dark brown colour with a frothy beige, good retention and creamy lacing. Nutty aromas with coffee notes over mild roasted malts. Smooth oily mouthfeel. The roasted malts are felt more in the taste. Coffee and nuts still present. Quite surprised at how good this dark ale is.
