Not a fave. Too much carbonation for my liking. Decent taste. Just not what I want in a black lager.

Pours a brownish-black hue with a huge head into my glass.

Odd, metallic note greets the nose. I don't detect much beyond that. Wait, there is a touch of roastiness.

Quickly turns into a weak mess with what I perceive to be caramel and dark fruit. It tastes more like a botched black-n-tan than anything.

Finishes flat at the back of the throat.

Not recommended. You can get much better examples elsewhere.
