Picked up a single from the Wegman's in Allentown. It pours a dark brown with a tall off-white head. The body is thicker and creamy, like an oatmeal stout. There's a little roast in the aroma and flavor, a hit of dark fruit, and a mild dry cocoa flavor in the finish. There's a bitter bite in the finish a la Irish stout for a pleasant finish. The mid-flavor is a little bland, the flavors aren't popping, but it's still a tasty beer worth checking out.

A friend of mine who lives in Point Pleasant gave me two bottles of this to try.
Appearance: Dark brown, almost black.
Smell: Slightly roasty, a little bit of chocolate. Not much hops.
Taste: Similar to the taste. The hops aren't noticeable but the overall flavor of the beer is mild as a schwarzbier should be.
Mouthfeel: Relatively lLight in body; not Coors-light light, more like Yeungling.
Overall: A decent session beer, nice to have on a cool fall night. As long as you don't grab a bottle of this expecting to get blown away, you will not be dissapointed. Consider this a decent alternative for someone who drinks Newcastle, but wants something a little more mild.

Pours a very dark brown with about a half inch of tan head that retains somewhat well. Smells of caramel and dark malts with subtle scents of licorice and chocolate. Medium bodied with with a good amount of carbonation and finishes with a slight warming sensation as you swallow (perfect for a cold winter night at your lonely winter rental in pt pleasant)
Taste wise this beer does very well for a winter session brew. Lots of caramel, chocolate and dark malts followed by a mild hop presence to balance things out giving you a superbly clean finish!
Like I said before, an awesome winter session beer!
