S: Chocolate, nuts, a bit of coffee, and the roasted malt.
T: Very roasted/toasted flavor, a bit of coffee bitterness, and a mild sweetness at some points.
M: Kind of light in body, but a lot more punch than a typical lager.

Bottle from Ledgers Liquors. It’s sublabeled MIdnight Sessions. Same ABV. Black, black, black, with a passing tan head. Aroma of dark malt and coffee. Near fullbodied with creamy carbonation. It thins as the carbonation leaves. It’s got coffee and burnt toast. Makes me think somewhat of the old, long gone, Guinness. Burnt. Yeah. Great finish. Do these guys ever make a mediocre beer?
