The wait staff told me it was like a Killian’s but reminded me more of German dunkel. Very smooth taste and mellow. A pleasant surprise. weihenweizen (3731) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2014
On tap in Pittsburgh. Pours dark crimson with beige head. Aroma is light caramel malt, medium body, medium carbonation, and some thin small bubble lacing. Taste is caramel malt and balancing hops. Lots of flavor, good Irish ale. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - AUG 5, 2014

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a brown colored brew with light hints of red. Upon serving there was a nice just off white head of two fingers. The head faded relatively fast to leave a lighter level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma was overall quite light. While light it was strongest of caramel and some roasted malt aromas. Mixed with these aromas is a light aroma of an earthy nature.
Taste – The taste starts roasted and sweet with a good dose of caramel and some brown bread and roasted notes. As the flavor advances further the sweetness and roast fade slightly with hop flavors coming onto the scene. While the hop remains relatively light to the end where a more roasty and slightly earthy flavor are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in thickness with a medium level of carbonation. Both create a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – An easy drinking beer with a moderate roast, sweet, and hop flavor. Nothing exceptional, but quite balanced and a good session. cheap (5791) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2012
OK, so Rocky Blie couldn’t have his own beer but the rooneys can, go figure. Smooth mild easy going for the most part. Pour is quite dark, enough to be considered a dark beer. Pretty good fun for a lager lover, quite beery but not over the top in any way. Aroma hints like the friendly sweat of a girlfriend. Finish is mild malt or possibly lagerized dull industrial hops. Overall good beer experience. douglas88 (9049) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 12, 2012
6 pack from Giant Eagle. Pours a deep mahogany hue with a small white head. The aroma is light caramel and toasted malts. The flavor is a sweet mix of chocolates and caramel, some dryness. Pretty clean. Almost porter-like at times.

Draft... Clear dark-copper ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aromatic standouts are toasted malts, dates and a pleasant nuttiness. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with prickly carbonation. The flavor presents notes of toasted malt and caramel up front; maple and medium bitterness on the backside. Lengthy, minerally, fairly bitter finish. Go Steelers! bth122 (1547) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2013

Dry, toasty aroma with some nuts. Clean label, standard US longneck, keystone cap. Clear, dark brown beer, thin lacy head. Flavor mirrors the aroma -- dry, toasty/roasty, lightly acidic, pleasant bittering. Session weight, long roasty aftertaste gets a little clingy. A little sweetness and raisin as it warms. Not bad.

Brews n chews. Clear Amber colored pour. Fruity malty tasting beer. A real beery beer. GTAEgeek (2183) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2012
On tap at a pub in Palm Beach Airport. Pours dark brown with reddish hues and a medium, tan head. The aroma is toffee and caramel malts, light earthy and floral hops. The flavor is sweet and malty, with faint bitterness in the finish. The palate is medium to heavy, sticky, and a fairly astringent. Overall, this is a malt bomb, with a fair hop profile for balance. Not too bad.
