Pours a dark brown (reminded me of a soda) with a very thick tan head. Sweet roated malt aroma. Very smooth malt and caramel flavor with a hint of coffee and a slight metallic bite. This is a very good beer.
12 oz via bottle. Dark, creamy and smooth with notes of chocolate, mild caramel/toffee and light vanilla. Moderately sweet with minimal bitterness. A little thin on the palate. Not bad overall. Aggiebob (1134) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle. Black in color with a tan head that disipated quickly. Roasted malt aroma with dark chocolate, coffee and light toast notes. It is a bit watery but has a smooth finish.

Color of a cola, very dark. I am not a big fan of dark beers, but this one isn’t strong tasting. As a previous review said, it tastes part porter and part lager. Somewhat bitter but not overwhelming. Actually not a bad beer - recommended if you like porters. geologyguy (1604) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2017

12 ounce bottle. Deep brown in color. Aroma of roasted malt and raw dough. Taste the malt, not overwhelming. Very smooth with a hint of chocolate. Very nice porter.

Can at my parents house. It pours a dark chestnut color with a fizzy light tan head. The aroma has light cocoa powder, caramel, and toast. The flavor is more toasted with hints of cocoa powder, rice and corn adjusts. Light bodied with very light bitterness. Easy to drink. Not bad actually.

(bottle) Pours a dark brown complexion with dissipating tan head. Some biscuit and steel aroma. The flavor is a mellowed malt with some rich roasted qualities. Watery palate. sjkrieth (3) - Niles, Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2016 does not count
A great dark beer that is a combination of their Porter and Lager. 60% Porter 40 % Lager. A great caramel flavor - Great with or with out food.
