Serving: Bottle, from the bottle
Served: 29 May 2014
Appearance: Enjoyed this one from the bottle. You can tell this is one dark beer though, since the brown bottle gets lighter as you drink this one.
Smell: Complex notes of gooey caramel, toffee, and molasses.
Taste: Much like the smell, with an especially strong assertion of sweet molasses malt notes. Extremely flavorful for a highly underrated style.
Mouthfeel: Easily one of the weakest aspects of this beer in my opinion. Despite the relatively strong malty flavors, the beer felt somewhat thin on the tongue. The carbonation didn't carry the beer too well.
Overall: A very flavorful beer from Trader Joe's for a good price point. I would recommend this to drinkers who like malty beers.

Dark brown with reddish tinges, pretty clear, head and lacing were pretty good.
Aroma and flavor were not bad, but earthines and nuttiness may have overpowered it a bit. Toasty, a touch of roasty, and caramel malts are there I'm not catching much in the way of hops.
Body is medium and it's pretty darn drinkable. No real complaints, but it's also not going to make front page. It plenty drinkable tho.
