Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose of roast coffee, roast chocolate and smoked malt. Taste is lacking - mostly likely smoked and roasted chocolate malt. Body is very thin. Lacks complexity. bhensonb (15355) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Bottle from Bottle Barn. Aroma of rich dark roasted malt that is not burnt, and is somewhat chocolatey. The color is deep ruby, if viewed under very strong light; otherwise nearly opaque. The white head collapsed rapidly. Medium bodied with full and creamy carbonation - no bite. The flavor is mellow dark roast malt with dark chocolate aspects. A very slight touch of underlying sour. The finish is not sweet; the malt continues; some bitter pops up for balance. The whole thing is a bit earthy, like fresh mushrooms, but that’s just the backdrop for really great flavor. At US $30+ for a six pack it’s not likely to be an everyday quaff, but I am glad to have been able to enjoy it. Perhaps as close to stout as a lager is likely to get.

A dark reddish brown lager with a thin light moka head. A very fruity aroma with light burned caramel and chocolate. In mouth, a light and peaty lager, with light roasted coffee, wooden notes, a bit of herbal funk, but too thin for my liking. Out of the 3 (Blanc, and Original), this is my least favorite.

Taste is bitter malts, some graininess, faint raisins and VERY faint chocolate. Thin-medium bodied. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2010
