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.
