Don't let its looks deceive you. Though it may resemble a porter or a stout, this is a light bodied ale with a pleasant hint of molasses. Don't be afraid of the dark.

Can Pours dark and sits black in my glass with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The nose is roasted and a touch lactic. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced, but bland and uninteresting with light acidity. Crisp, mildly tangy finish.

Roasted nutty aroma hint of vanilla sweetness. Dark brown pour fleeting tannish foam islands. Roasty and nutty, dry with an earthy hop character. Smooth and easy to drink light lingering bitterness. Decent.

12oz can, thanks scrizzz. Cola brown with loose off white head. Nose is roasted nut, malt, coffee and some sweet vegital notes. Flavor is light nut, sweet roasted malt, metallic and stewed veggies. Not overly offensive just not very clean or well put together.

MBG Winterfest 2010. Poured dark brown with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Average for style brew.

beernbourbon (1579) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Can. Pour is clear dark dark brown with small off white head. Aroma is roasted malt, faint coffee, light spice, and distant hop. Flavor is nice roasted malt, light coffee, faint rye-like component, and a crisp finish. I liked it, a bit thin on the palate but otherwise solid.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Dark pour with some streaks of head. Slight vegetable aroma, with a hint of chocolate. Flavor really isnt there. Maybe some molasses and nuts. Mouthfeel is very light. This beer is like the dark version of coors light, but not as bad as that sounds.

OK, this stuff is good. Not great. Much lighter taste than the hue would imply. But I would definitely slam some of these if I had some in front of me right now. I dont so I cant. In these troubled times our age-old friend Blatz is always there for you, so if I were you (Im not) thats what I would stick to. Think about it.
