Nice easy drink! Love it.. Pours dark, small head, and leaves no lace behind. But also leaves no harsh after taste. Definitely drink it again!

Pours with a small, light brown head. Has a very dark brown color. Has aromas of malts, hops, and chocolate. Hops and malts are also present in taste with a slight chocolate finish.

Dark brown, nearly black minimal head, little lacing. Aroma was pretty much only dark roasty malts. Taste was a bit of dark roast malt, a slight touch of chocolate. Mouthfeel was pretty light for a darker beer, didn't linger on the tongue much. Not at all a bad beer, but not great either.

I've had a strong craving for dark lagers after returning from the Czech Republic, so I was happy to see this on the shelves of my local Whole Foods. It's a light-body beer with notes of toffee, caramel, and roasted coffee. Perhaps sweeter than I'm familiar with, but very pleasant for stout-lovers stuck in summer weather.
