Sweet and more full-bodied than what you find in this part of the world. I think that it had a nice, fruity complexity and was well done.

Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a golden brown color, not all that dark, despite the title. It has a pretty long lasting 2 inch head, and a lot of lacing. The superlatives end here.

This smells musty and stale, like old bread. I have no idea how old this bottle is, but it can't be new.

This tastes musty and stale at all, with a bit of buttery diacetyl feel to it too. This is just simply not good. I'm against drain pouring, but I almost did throughout the whole session. I finished it, but it was hard. If I try really hard I can pull out weirdly sweet caramel. Meh, at best.

This is medium bodied, with a slick, oily, and gross mouthfeel. Really hard to get down. There's a medium amount of carbonation.

This is a big miss, in just about every way.

Pours a light brown color with a decent tan colored head and a nice retention.
The aroma is very weak, hardly picked up, just some basic malty aroma.
The taste ois sweet throughout, quite bland withouth any real finish.
Drinkable but that's it. No real taste to it.

This is one amazing beer. I was in a discount grocery store and stumbled upon this, selling for just $2.99 for a 6 pack. Seriously, $2.99. I have tried a few discounted beers, and so far, they rank up there with the best micro brews I have had. Smooth and Zesty! This is one of them, and even my girlfriend (who is not too huge a beer fan) agrees. Amazing is all I can say. It honestly is one of the best tasting micro brews I have ever had. That with the $2.99 price? Unbelievable, like seriously unbelievable. This is a beer that you can drink 1 after another, or drink with a good steak or burger. It is cheaper than most micro brews by 3x (at least at this store here in cali), and tastes as good or better. If you like dark beers, you gotta get your lips on these. I am all for American brews, but this imported brew blows American brews out of the water. As I was drinking it, I was thinking about the cost to make it, bottle it, import it on boats from thousands of miles away, and how it still is so cheap and so damn good tasting. I am blown away. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it is the first time I have had it.
