3.9/5  rDev +4%

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

LOOK: Nearly full on black, impressive lacing

SMELL: Soft charcoal, milk chocolate, faint oil hop, herbal, toasted bread, dried hay

TASTE: Mild roastiness, smooth, medium bodied, clean, balanced hopping, herbal, faintly salty, brown malt, toasted grapenuts, mildly roasty drying finish

A very sessionable brew, perfect for the winter and is a great substitute if you love Porters. Organic and all if you are into that, and all around great beer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a medium beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, lager yeast and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready from lager yeast and a hearty roasted malt character. Then some flavors of black coffee and black chocolate come in along with some smokiness in the background. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly smoky.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

On tap at the Mellow in G-boro.Poured a deep dark chocolate color with a tinge of ruby,a thinner off white head atop.Earth and bitter chocolate in the nose,not much sweetness other than slight molasses sweetness.Earthy with a light bitter chocolate notes on the palate,a little brown sugar/molasses sweetness in the finish.Not complex but tasty,light and easier to drink.

Poured from bottle (best by 06/13/14) into a tulip glass

A- pours black with one finger off white brown head, leave good lacing and a lasting cap.

S- roasted/ charred malt, semisweet chocolate that you can easily smell before you put your nose in the glass!

T/M- very light sweetness with a strong bittersweet chocolate and sharp hit of carbonation in the beginning that ends full and smooth. Yum!

O- a great sessions beer that tastes great from the first one to the last, no matter how many you have =]

(Served in a footed strange)

A- This beer pours an opaque black body with a boiling big bubbly light tan head that sticks to the glass in sheets. There is a gentle carbonation of microbubbles.

S- The dark pine hops with clean black malt hints are lagered smooth and finish with a flinty note that grows a bit as it warms.

T- The light clean dark roasted malt is clean with a slight chalky note and a clean slightly dry finish. The green hop hint lingers with a faint roast note comes through.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel with a gentle fizz.

O The crisp clean lagered beer has full fresh dark malt and a nice support of hops. Very drinkable and tasty.
