I really enjoy this beer. It was served to me at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank and was poured perfectly. Very dark in appearance with a thick, tan, creamy head. Chocolate and coffee smell but not a strong taste of it. Sweet and very mild going down. No bitterness at all. I could easily drink a few of these.

On-tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse. Served in a nonic.

Red-brown liquid with a thin light desert sand head which persists well and exhibits excellent lacing.

Malt forward on the nose - rich and dark but not particularly roasty. Faint orange notes.

Bread pudding, mineral water, light coffee, and crème fraîche on the palate. The finish is slightly tart and dry with a hint of iodine. Just a touch of bitterness for balance. Diacetyl is a bit higher than I'd like - and reduces the drinkability significantly.

Medium-light, yet creamy body. Low but suitable carbonation.

Properly sessionable and surprisingly flavorful for the ABV - though as I said, the diacetyl gets in the way a bit.

While tasty, this comes across as more of a home-brew as it is a touch rough around the edges. Looking forward to seeing what Eagle Rock comes up with given more time...

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Black and totally opaque with traces of red throughout 1 inch tan head with great retention

Smell: Traces of tobacco and coffee

Taste: The taste reminds me of a more muted version of guinness. It has a bit of roasted malt and coffee

Mouthfeel: Good feel to it like most nitro beers. It has a medium to full body with medium carbonation

Overall: This beer is incredibly drinkable but that is about all it has going for it. Flavor is ok but nothing to write home about

Great beer.

This is a welcome addition to the Southern California beer scene. We need more beers like this. The nitro gives a big mouthfeel to such a light and easy to drink beer.

Bold roast flavors cover up the lack of heat in a way that makes me want another.

I'm not nearly as into the co2 version, so I won't review it.

Had this on tap at the brewery.

Glad to see someone finally stepping up and making a high-quality session beer. In my opinion, the dark mild has been criminally neglected by the craft community.

A: Very dark. Looks almost like a stout. Pours with a nice white head.

S: Has that nice malty / cereal sort of smell. A little bit of roastiness, but its subtle.

T: A fairly light flavor. You get a bit of chocolate, coffee, general roastiness, but its all up front, and the beer finishes clean. I got none of the diactyl that another reviewer noticed.

M: Beer was well carbonated. Mouthfeel was light, but not out of character for the style

D: On a nice hot day I could easily see putting back a growler of this.

Overall, I found this to be a solid first effort from a new brewery, and a good representation of the style.
