12 oz glass bottle. Birthday gift sampler pack! This is my first trial run.
Appearance - through the glass it has a beautiful dark amber color. Leaves a lacing even in the bottle.
Smell - bready, caramel, A lot like Grain Belt Nordeast. Sweet. An exquisite smell.
Taste - surprisingly great! but not exceptional. I like the smooth flavor but it ends a tad too bitter/sour for me. I consider Nordeast to be the quintessential red beer for myself, so keep that in mind. Has a bit of a Budweiser smoky flavor to it as well. I would say it starts better than it ends and it ends on a sour metallic note.
Mouthfeel - glassy smooth. Bubbly. Goes down easy.
Overall - this is a good beer. I would order it in a pub and drink it again if Nordeast was not available. Schell has done another great job, good stuff.

I usually steer clear of dark beers and resisted trying Schell's Dark. I often associated dark beers with being bitter and filling. This was not the case. I loved there was very little bitterness. A very refreshing beer, light malt with a great aftertaste. Not a lot of carbonation though. With some types beers I have one and I am done. I will usually have one after work and one with dinner. Goes great with meat and potatoes.
