A thin head on a brown colored body.
The aroma had a hint of roasted malt and a lot of dry grain.
The taste starts okay with a little roasted malt and then descends into super malty sweet hell.
The texture was sticky with moderate carbonation.
Stay away until it's the only game in town... then find another town.

330mL bottle, best before 29/09/12. I guess the store had some old bottles.

appears very dark brown, red highlights, thin off-white head, good head retention. malty aroma, no hops. fairly sweet taste, smooth, easy drinking. mild. lingering aftertaste. thin to medium body, medium carbonation. overall - not bad, it has a good mild flavor and high drinkability.

Best before 4/27/13.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and a brewed tea aroma. Taste is mainly of toasted bread and slightly burnt caramel. There is a very mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that is decently drinkable but nothing too exciting.
