look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice, transparent cola color. Head was gone before the beer was delivered, and there wasn't any lacing to speak of. The color though -- something about it just spot on.

S: surprisingly bland. Some weak, nutty malt flavors. maybe just a tinge more roastiness than newcastle.

T: A little bit heftier in the taste department than newcastle as well. The nutty flavor is lacking (unfortunately) but a subtle roastiness gives this a nice character. Just seems to make the beer more enjoyable.

M & D: I really don't know about this one. Not as good as fat squirrel, newcastle...about on par with Leinie's fireside nut brown -- but it a different fashion.

DTB isn't bad, it's more like switzerland of the political beer community....it doesn't bother to take any sides.

Serving type: on-tap

2.85/5  rDev -19.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12oz bottle poured into a nonic pint.

A - Dark amber with great clarity. Off-white cap of foam holds a cap. Spotty lacing.

S - Biscuit malt that jumps right into some coffee with little in between. Plenty of DMS.

T - Taste follows the nose. If I closed my eyes, I wouldn't know there were any kilned malts in this from all the base flavors. Prickly carbonation on top of some mild sweetness. Finishes with some bitterness.

M - Light to medium-light body, medium to medium-high carbonation, semi-dry.

O - It's good to support local breweries so in a pinch I would order this but not over most American craft beers. This beer has some aroma flaws and really lacks all character in the taste.

Recommendation - Pass this up.

3.7/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served slightly chilled in a standard pint glass at a local bar.

A=Very dark brown, with a slight hint of red...almost opaque. A thin, ecru foam head was less than standard.

S=Nice smell of malt--cocoa and cream.

T=Rather strong taste of semi-sweet chocolate at first, with a bit of coffee and biscuit...seemed to turn sweeter and lighter as I drank. Somewhat of a mix between semi-sweet chocolate and milk chocolate, but not bitter.

M=Lighter body than I anticipated, with a lower amount of carbonation. I would have preferred it to have a bit more body, but the lightness makes it a good session beer.

O=I enjoyed this beer and would buy it again...I had paired it with a hamburger,but drank most of it before the burger arrived...still, it was light enough to compliment the burger rather well.
