Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a russet amber with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to a thin film and ring around the glass leaving light lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, spicy graininess. Flavor starts well, with sweet mild toasted malt, slight breadiness, hint of caramel, but ends rather abruptly with slight caramel malt and a hint of grassy hops. Light bodied. A step above other macros, but nothing exciting. Would do in a pinch if only macro beer was available.

Ah...here's one I have not had in a while. I think this is one of the better choices at a lot of Tex-Mex restaurants around town if you don't see any craft beer selections around.

Nice color...a little lighter than an iced tea...decent mix of brown, red and caramel. Cream colored head that disappates rather quickly...very little lacing to speak of.

Getting some sweet malt with just a hint of light roastiness. Smells clean.

Just a slight light roasted chocolate flavor. Malts take over this beer but there is a very small hint of bitterness to finish.This beer is refreshing and has a medium carbonation. Certainly not offensive to folks looking to try something different than the typical Corona type lager at a restaurant. A smidge more booze in this one makes it more fun to drink.

I'd certainly order this one with a fajita platter anytime!

I didn't know what to expect with this beer and frankly kept my expectations low - boy was I surprised.

The brew pours out a very nice dark-caramel color, not black like the name of the beer would lead you to believe. The head was thin, but strangely, the lacing was noticeable all the way down the bottle - I've never seen anything like it. The smell was the normal hops and barley, but the odor was just slight - just the right amount in my opinion. Mouthfeel was surprising, the dark liquid was thick and felt velvety. The taste is what I walked away with impressed - full and rich - certainly not what I was expecting, but glad I did. Overall, a solid beer (in too small a bottle) I will be glad to partake of again.
