Pours a dark color with a red hue. Small of white haed with no lasting power. Aroma is grossly sweet. Almost tastes like flat cola. Just terrible.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, grain, caramel and mild funk. Taste of caramel and mild hops. Cream body that reminds me more of a cola than a beer. Meh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown beer with a creamy tan head. Aroma is quite nice. Rich nutty/chocolatey sweetness. Softly bready malt sweetness with a well-lagered cleanness. Sort of doughy and malty with lots of rich figgy/fruity sweetness. Really great balance with the fruitiness playing well off of the sweet rich malts. Lightly herbal hop finish. I wasn’t expecting much from this, but it is really quite good, and at 1.90 its a fantastic deal.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I bought this because it was a buck ninety for a 500ml - I figured, even if it’s bad, who cares? - it’s 1.90 - anyway, this really is much better than the ratings suggest - pours a dark amber, with a moderate lace - aroma of cherries, nuts, treacle, pastry dough, bread pudding - the flavor isn’t a sweet, and actually has a tiny bit of tartness to it - a lot of doughy character in the flavor, with cane sugar in the background, cherries, raisins, figs, nutty character - a touch of hops - lingering clean sweetness in the finish - fairly flavorful (but surprisingly sweet) for the abv - like a toned down assam bock - it’s pretty good - actually, for the price, it’s damn good.

dark brown pour as promised with a well sized light tan head. malty aroma, but the taste doesn’t deliver the punch and the finish is odd.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap. Pours dark brown with a huge light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and light acidic. Flavour is mild fruity and light acidic roasted malt. Goes into a light dry buterish and medium dry finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a medium-bodied dark beer with an oily aroma. It has a somewhat metallic flavor that has malty nut tendencies.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Kind of disappointing. Nose of heavy sweet malts, but the body seemed thin. Good hop presence, and flavor is of roasted malts. Finish is hot somehow (only 4%!), and not unpleasant but kind of metallic. Weird beer.
