Very smooth, yet dark and flavorful. Dark lager describes it very well. It has the mild flavor of a lager with the boldness of a dark beer.

Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Pleasant surprise. Bottle pours caramel color with thick frothy off-white head with great lacing. Aroma sweet malts. Taste matches with sweet malts, caramel, toffee. Palate thick and carbonated, not syrupy. Finish slightly bitter hops but not overbearing and I’m not a big hops fan. Alcohol slightly evident. This is a very sweet beer and won’t appeal to everybody, but I enjoyed it.

[Bottle] Pours a solid black color with a foamy tan head. Aroma of sweet molasses, vanilla and some earth. The taste is of sweet dark malts, grains, roast, some grass and cocoa. Dry and dusty finish. Prickly carbonation. This beer is pretty good, but a tad light in body.
