Another tasty brew from the Philly location. Nice dark color with a small head. Malt sweetness and roast malt finish. adrian910ss (2590) - Doylestown, PA, USA - FEB 25, 2008
On draft at the Chestnut Street location. Pours a dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt and faint smoked meat. Taste of malt and beef jerky. Average. User37895 (3042) - - MAR 20, 2009
On draft at the Philly location. The pour was dark black in color, decent tan colored head that yielded good lacing. The aroma was chocolate and licorice, some metallic grassy notes. The flavor was chocolate, roast, licorice, and grassy hops. This was semi-dry with a full body, good attenuation. There was an odd metallic note under it all, but if you like lager, this was decent. puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Tap at Philly. Filtered black pour with a mild head. Smells like big puffy pretzels, for real. Maybe like dry pretzels too. Vegetal and toast flavor, corn chips and cactus are apparent. Okay-ish, not terribly exciting. I’d like more roast flavor. Larry_Duffman (580) - - SEP 25, 2017
I had it on tap. It pours dark brown with a tan head and some lacing. The aroma is roasty and bread. The taste is roasty, some coffee, toast, and some chocolate. It starts off with some carbonation and finishes smooth. This is pretty good.

@Philly-on tap-pours a retaining tan head with some lacing. Color is mahogany. Aroma is dark malt-peat, slight sweetness, some Irish Red/Brown Ale metallic, musty. Taste is dark malt-peat/some caramel/chocolate, secondary dry/slightly earthy bitter hops. OK effervescence, mush of it on the tip of the tongue then soft carbonation.

Poured in philadelphia location. Dark amber off white head ok retention. Lacing rings. Light roasty nose. Light bodied and crisp. Light roast in mouth compliments the flower finish. Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2008
The malty beer pours dark brown. I think this delivered nicely but that might just be because I enjoy Schwarzbier. Tastes like a lager but a little heavier and maltier. Very earthy beer with a nice smooth slightly hopped finish. JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Darker brown with a bready, roasty aroma. Flavor is a bit bland with some bread and medium-bodied lager taste. OK, but Triumph should improve this one. blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours deep brown with a thin beige head. Light roasted aroma with light sweet notes. The flavor is on the bland side, with roast, and a touch of sweetness. Very low bitterness. Not bad.
