UPDATED: OCT 21, 2009 Dark as a cola. Taste a tad stronger than a shiner bock. Scared a few bc of the labeling, but it is not that strong of an ABV. RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Drank from a bottle, so simply gave it a three for appearance. Strong roasted flavor, almost burnt, and not much else. Just not really my cup of tea. SSSteve (4006) - - JUN 7, 2008
pours black with ruby highlights under a large creamy tan head. aroma is lightly roasted but also some lager scents. flavor is roasty and smoky with a chalky finish. creamy texture and medium-light bodied. bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear dark cola brown with garnet lights and a lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted nuts with a bit of chocolate to prop it up. Medium body and carbonation. Sort of starts creamy and finishes watery, with some brown sugar, and coffee in the mix. The finish wants to be crisp, but doesn’t quite get there. Not a bad little beer, though.

Bottle from my boss! Pours dark cola brown with cola like retention. Roasted malt aroma, some chocolate notes. Fruity, malty taste with subtle coffee notes. Creamy mouthfeel.

Dark black pour no head. Let this one warm up - not too good cold. Once warm (room temp) a strong chocolately/toffee taste come forward. Easy to drink, great dark session brew. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Reddish copper with a large beige head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma of Saaz hops, spice, light sweet malts and caramel. Watery yet creamy body that has a light caramel taste and finished a touch dry. Mainly malted with little to no hop characteristics. davidCC (130) - New York, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Dark black color with very little head, flat on the carbonation and very watery feel. knights97 (109) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2008 beer pours to a dark tan foam that quickly dissolves, is pitch black and very little aroma to it, very faint smell of roasted malts, very thin beer and rather flavorless to me, aftertaste was the only plus, quite refreshing achtungpv (266) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Pours a light black color with very little head. Tastes a bit thin and very flat. No real flavor to note. If you like their bock, this is a drinkable but lesser beer.
