Best by 1/12/13.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt and some slight cocoa and coffee aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

12oz bottle given to me by a friend, and recommended to me by my beer guy...into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint we go...
A: Dark chocolate brown pour with transparent red highlights and a creamy off-white head that leaves some decent lace.
S: Nice roasted malt sweetness, espresso beans, and dark chocolate...toasted bread as well with more darker/toasted/roasted malt notes underneath.
T: Taste is right in line with the nose, lighter malt sweetness, suggestions of roasted espresso and unsweetened bakers chocolate again. Ghostly roasted bitter edge on the finish. Faint hint of earthy hop bitterness to balance nicely.
MF: Impressive, its got body for sure...creamy, medium mouthfeel...moderate carbonation.
O: Impressive lager...I've heard it described as a Czech Dark and now a Doppelbock...whatever the case, this is pretty good for a lager, and (just like the 6-pack holder states) there are nice notes of chocolate and coffee throughout. My kind of beer.

Picked up a sixer of this for $5, score! The label mentions chocolate but I would not go that far. Dark black color, decent head. Smells roasty, dark, malts. Flavor is more of the same, very dark malts. This is a good lager, not sure what style it would be because I'm pretty much a novice at drinking lager beers. I would definitely buy another one of these for $5, that was a fucking steal.

Dark brown color with an okay tan-colored head; kind of fizzy. Roasted malt, slight chocolate aroma; a bit of brown sugar. Roasted, nutty flavor; nice residual sweetness to balance things; slightly bitter at the finish; alcohol warmth sneaks in near the end, too; a tinge of light, soft chocolate after repeated sips. Medium-light body, clean; a bit over-carbonated.
A nice six-pack surprise from Full Sail with their LTD series. Pretty nice overall if a bit too carbonated. Dark, roasted flavors are a highlight. Worth checking out...

Pours chestnut with 2 fingers of tan head. Good head retention & lacing
S: Brown bread. figs & pears
T: Follows the nose, some figgy notes, a touch of raisin & carob up front. A touch of charred grain. more dark fruit, dryness & a touch of breadyness & some pear & just a kiss off booze as this warms. Finishes with boozey pears, dryness & raisins
MF: Medium bodied/slightly chewy with low carbonation, thins a touch as this warms
An alright dopplebock, nothing too exciting, but a decent entre to the style

I poured this from a bit above the glass giving this beer a really big light brown head that quickly fell to about an inch and slowly settled after that above a really dark burnt reddish colored beer.
Light nose of roasted chocolate malts with a hint of some really dark fruits.
Roasted chocolate malts out trump the other malts such as coffee and caramel to make a pretty good tasting beer.
A light aftertaste that carries with it some of the lighter chocolate tastes on this medium bodied beer from the guys out there in Hood River, OR.
A nice dry light chocolate taste, well done.

1st review.... Going to say right up front, that I did not know what style this brew actually is. Euro Dark Lager didn't look right... Munich Dunkel (too dark) was not quite as wrong... Could easily be a Schwarzbier (abv is too high).. I went with Doppelbock.. Moderators, please feel free to change it, though I would like a reason why just for future reference and my own education.
Picked up a couple of these tonight at the COOP for about $1.50... damn fair.. poured into my slim tulip... the brew is clear, but nearly black... polished walnut only shows with a decent light behind the glass... A little dark compared to most doppelbocks, but not outside of style guidelines, but pushing it for sure... Dark brown head doesn't stick around at all.
Great roast malt nose.. pretty clean.. interesting mix of toast, light caramel and some chocolate malt notes... nicely balanced sweetness helps accentuate the dark malts.. smells great.
Flavor pretty much mirrors the nose spot-on.. roasty notes come out as light espresso beans without the astringency... chocolate malt almost seems like "milk chocolate malt" with the moderate residual maltiness..
For the lower lager ABV, I was expecting a lesser body, but this one is a slightly lighter side of medium.. light/medium carbonation for the style helps the viscosity and the drinkability IMO.
I appreciate good lagers... especially dark ones. Full Sail more than exceeded my expectations... I will DEFINITELY be buying this one again as long it is in my reach.
Very cool... this one is in my wheelhouse.
Edit: The message under the bright orange cap says, "Live the dream."
