L: Dark red, nice carbonation, and good lacing.
S: Malt, chocolate.
T: Malt and chocolate. Almost a milk stout sweetness.
F: Smooth. Medium feel.
O: Good. Not as many flavors as the Iron Thistle, if you like some bitterness in this style then go for Rahr's offering. Otherwise, this is a good choice.

L (4.25) - This beer pours a nice deep brown. Not quite as dark as a stout, but almost. Nice amount of foam on top, too.
S (3.75) - I don't get a lot of aroma. I know this style isn't crazy with hops, but I should smell something. Just kinda smells like beer, with a few roasted and caramel subtleties.
T (4) - I like this beer. A fine malt taste, with some hop hints. I've been into this style lately, and this one is a 'good' example.
F (4) - Again, nothing superlative here, but nice carb, nice drinkability.
O (4) - All in all, a 'nice' beer. I'm not going to wait in line on Black Friday to get this, but I certainly will buy it again.
