3.25/5  rDev -13.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Two fingers of head on a black body.
The aroma has a light scent of roasted malt.
The taste has some burnt wood, roasted malt and a lemon bitter (mild) finish.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A decent black lager, though the taste was heavy on the burnt wood.

Serving type: bottle

3.35/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: 4 Looks a bit thin on the pour. The color is dark brown with a one-inch light tan head.

S: 3 Mostly a lot of metallic, lager yeast. There’s a little bit of roasted malt in the background giving off a chocolaty, earthy aroma.

T: 3.5 The roasted malt is more up front than on the nose bringing similar chocolate flavors. Hops are pretty mild with subtle bitterness. The hops and malt are actually quite nice and balanced, but there is an off-putting metallic taste that follows them. Fortunately, it’s not quire as strong as on the nose, but it’s still pretty noticeable.

M: 3.25 Quite thin with no dryness, but it’s rather refreshing for a dark beer. A bit more body would be nice.

O: 3.25 This beer is pretty meh. Even if the yeast had backed off a bit the underlying characteristics are uninteresting. At least it’s fairly easy drinking and somewhat refreshing.

3.21/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Drinking this 3 days before the "drink by" date, but since it's still within I'll review.
A: pours a very very dark brown, almost black. Thin 2 finger head quickly dissipates to nothing. Looks a lot like a glass of coke or Pepsi.
S: not much going on here, possibly because the older can. Faint sweet smell, also a slight toasty aroma.
T: I'm tasting a lot of roasty, smokey notes. Coffee and dark bitter chocolate a faint but present. Slightly sweet. After-taste that remains reminds me a lot of stout/porter finish. Cleans from the mouth quickly.
M: Thin taste, also cleans from the mouth quickly.
Overall: Average to above average black lager, good alternative to a stout or porter if your looking to pick up those flavors.
