Received a few bottles as a gift. Poured into a pilsner glass.
A: Pours a clear dark amber with slightly tan head. Head was two fingers thick and took its time to slowly fade.
S: Some good roasted malt character with toasty notes. Solid malt profile aroma.
T: Nice chocolate & caramel malt profile. Very pleasing. A bready character comes through.
M: A bit on the lighter side. Nice carbonation. Even on the sweet/bitter category.
D: Excellent in drinkability. With a lighter mouthfeel & very solid malt profile, I could see myself flying through these.
Wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. Will go nicely with a hot sausage w/sauerkraut later tonight.

Appearance was dark reddish brown
Smell wasn't over the top which is typical for a good lager. Not much on the nose.
Taste...rich malty biscuity heaven, perfect amount of roast.
Mouthfeel very clean lager refreshingly light on the palate.
One of my favorite beers to date. Outstanding lager. I don't know a whole lot about Mother Earth Brewing but I know that this beer alone has made me interested in their other stuff.
Serving type: on-tap

Dark Cloud pours into a ruby color with significant lacing. It's smell is a complex blend of coffee, toffee, and malts, amongst others. The taste is bready, chocolatey, and a little malty with a late rush of toffee sweetness. Honestly, it's difficult to even detect any hoppy bitterness. It feels very well-balanced and medium-bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. A very drinkable and sessionable lager but far more complex than that designation might suggest. An awesome achievement for a Carolina brewery.
