A: Very dark brown when it came out of the bottle. On top was a thick finger sized creamy white head that dissipated rather quick with little lacing.

S: Dark roasted grains that are over taken by a bready sweetness, but on the whole the scent is not all I wanted. It was a bit faint and not as robust as I expected from a dark beer.

T: A lot of roasted grains throughout. There are detectable hop flavors, with the higher carbonation at the beginning this is very noticeable, less so later on. While one would expect a slight sweet bread or malt flavor to follow, it hardly does. The tail end is more bitter than I would prefer.

M: Crisp and carbonated at first, as time went on and it warmed, there was a smoother feel but not a rich feel, it was a bit watery for that.

O: This is OK, it is not the most impressive beer in the world but there is no need to disparage it. It satisfies one's desire for a darker beer and certainly can fill the need for roasted flavors. I felt it was not as malty as I would have preferred. Drinkable, I would say nothing to write home about but I am writing about it so go figure.

Slightly better than regular Becks. If you want a light beer with actual taste, this isn't a bad choice.
