12oz bottle poured into a snifter glass. Searching for something special in this beer: aroma, flavor, nothing. Easy to drink but no flavor. dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Pours amber brown, fizzy head, off white. Smells of Yuengling, sweetness. Lacking a middle, but a sweet start with a caramel finish, crisp and clean. A bit of a linger bite from the nobility of Peter Straub. Anywhere that has an Eternal Tap get an extra half a point. alexsdad06 (10387) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma is mainly sweet malts with some light herbal notes. The flavor is slightly watery sweet malts with a very bitterness to the finish. Nothing but a straight forward, fairly clean dark lager. Worth trying once.

An amber lager with a thin off white head. In aroma, faint caramel with light wet dog. In mouth, a roasted barley oatmeal, chalky, boring. On tap at PA Flavor, April 9th, 2011. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2011
OK, for a dark beer I believe that many may consider this a disappointment, but never the less, it is still a drinkable beer. Not a full bodied dark. There’s a hint of dark malts that can be smelled. The flavor is more on the nutty, and perhaps a bit toasty, with average malt. Well balanced, there are no hop flavors present. A beer that is affordable and enjoyable.

Regular straub with a little bit of malt flavor. That is to say...tastes like carbonated water with a little malt flavor. Very fizzy. Very light palate and taste. Best of straubs offerings... jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2011
Bottle brought back to me from St. Mary’s by Dave. Pours a brown, clear color. Aroma is a little promising, somewhat malty. Taste is like a mediocre Budweiser with a little bit more malt. Nothing special, just a dark nearly BLS. PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 31, 2010
brilliant orange-amber with a creamy, cream-colored head. Smells like nuts and malty caramel, old blanket, hay. Palate is lighter-bodied than anticipated based on aroma, slightly syrupy with a very creamy carbonation. watered down malty caramel turning into Brazilian nut about one second in. Only a mild hop bitterness, little hop-flavor. Very interested, so added points to overall, but still a session beer with diluted flavor, aroma, and mouthfeel. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2010
This beer didn’t have too much flavor for being a dark beer. Pretty smooth and watery but i know there is a lot of love that goes into making this. BroSpud (2188) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUL 1, 2010
12oz bottle. Purchased while travelling. Nothing great here but it’s always fun to try regional beers that you can’t buy elsewhere and it’s always good when they are actually drinkable.
