Medium brown with a tan head. Fairly transparent. Great aroma of nuts, dried fruit, and toasted malt. Similar flavors on the palate. Great balance. Lengthy malty finish. madchemist83 (272) - USA - FEB 11, 2015
5 percent ? Really tastes like a bit more .. maybe residual gravity. Aromas of coffe, seltzer water and chocolate. Low body with mineral aftertaste. ARH (1125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is toasted bread and yeast with a light roasted coffee note and some cola late. It pours a dark, clear oily caramel color topped by an off white, beige foam head and it retains a medium ring with a light wisp surface and no lace. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter blend. The medium light body has a fuzzy carbonation and an oily texture. Figgy and roasty coffee flavors come through with a light toffee flavor late. It’s clean and crisp with a mineral water finish and has a nutty and roasted aftertaste.

Pours clear mahogany. Off white fizzy head. Slight roasted malt aroma. Flavor is medium dark roasted malt. Starts slightly sweet but has a drier finish. Palate is medium light; the effervescence is again s feature - it effects the overall palate. Overall, a nice dark session beer, light on hops. Lager. doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Black with off white head and mild lacing. Roast, chocolate, and coffee aroma. Medium body, roast throughout, nice balance, lite hop bitterness, and dry notes.
