look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance: Dark red color with 1 finger of tan head that fades to a thin cap with some chunky lacing.

Aroma: Roasted/black patent malt aroma with some sharpness from the carbonation.

Taste: Pretty thin up front with a decent amount of carbonation that is quite prickly, then a burnt malt taste starts to build towards the back end. Finish is fairly fast with just a hint of burnt malt.

The Rest: Not very good - more black water than black lager. Wouldn't waste my time with this one again.

Serving type: bottle
