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 a black with brown hue, thick creamy tane head, lots of lacing, very thin head is retained for most of drink. Aroma is of roasted malt, smoke, grain, molasses, caramel, and dried dark slightly tart fruit. First few sips were very pleasant and originally I had this rated higher, but as I finished this beer, it started to wear on me quickly. Drinkable, but just something is a bit off. Not bad, but good would be an overstatement.

Jet black in color with a brownish white head. Smells sweet and a little chocolate. First taste is sweet and smokey with a malty after taste. Really great beer to just drink.

Aroma is light roasted malt, metallic, nutty. Appearance is brown, light, light brown head. Taste is light roasted malt, metallic, nutty, not much else. Mouthfeel is light, somewhat thick carbonation, like oatmeal. Overall, meh. I didnt expect much and didnt get much.
