Pours a dark brown red with a decent head. Smells very sweet at first. Decent flavor that is not too thick. After warming up it smells like a cigar. A decent beer that is fairly easy to drink. Goes down easy. Not sure why it's rated so low. Bottle is pretty cool.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured a dark reddish brown with a good fingers worth of head that settles to a thin layer with wonderful lacing from start to finish.

S: I'm getting roasted malt, caramel, little chocolate, little coffee and a touch of hops right at the very end.

T: All the smelly flavors right up front quickly followed by a crisp hops flavor at the end. Pretty well balanced... I feel it leans a little more on the bitter side.

M: Crisp yet smooth but pretty thin overall.

O: A wonderful looking, smelling brew, but it losses steam after that.... Not bad beer just a little weaker than I was expecting.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Very dark, almost black with a foamy, but fleeting head that gave way to decent lacing.

S - Chocolate and roasted malt and grains.

T - Sweet chocolate with some coffee and roasted malts.

M - Smooth with moderate carbonation.

O - This reminded me of a good porter than anything else.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear ruby brown. No lacing. Any head it has is fizzled away in moments.

Smell: Cheap roasted malt. Grainy and quite sweet. Has a lot of "red" qualities to it. Simple. Reasonable. Decent at best.

Taste: More of the same. Very thin as well. Moderate carbonation. Not a lot of flavor here. Mildly roasty grains with sweetness, and a tinge of artificial sweetness at the end. About what I'd expect.

Not a beer I bought, or would have ever wanted to buy for myself, because it tastes just as I figured it would -- quite mediocre. Pretty much the very definition of an A-OK beer.
