Not going to get into aroma. I love lagers, but I don't find them to be nose pleasers per say. Off white head holds on nicely throughout the glass, especially against the dark base. Tried to get a decent pic of the pretty deep brown color. The roasted malt comes through, though not to the extent the color would lead you to believe. Also a surprisingly faint coffee taste, along with almost a nutty flavor. Going to look through reviews and see if anyone else gets that. Sort of a dark lager/brown ale combo. Off the top of my head, I think it is a better version of a Beck's Dark.

This not a fair review of this beer. I got this as a build your own six pack at an IGA. I think I got a bad bottle. When opened the bottle, the suds overflowed onto the counter, strange due to me not shaking the bottle, dropping the bottle or anything like that. I poured it into the pint glass and the head was very thick, it actually made up almost half the pour. I had to stop my pour. I waited five minutes and it did not go down.

This is where it gets interesting. I had to use a spoon to get some of the head out of the glass to pour the rest. The taste was okay, nothing special, but like I said, I think this was a bad bottle. I will find this again and give it a fair shot.
