Very dark brown color, 1 finger of head disappears quickly

Sweet smell with a bit of spice.

Bitter flavor of dark malts stands out,

Mouthfeel like drinking a glass of water, very thin.

Descent beer, very drinkable. Nice alternative to the normally heavy dark beers.

Pours deep brown with an off-white head that does not last.

Roasted malt and some cocoa in the nose.

A charred malt brown ale. Some schwarzbier elements to this. Some nuts, cocoa,brown sweet bread, carbonized malt. Mildly bitter, a little sour in the finish. Mild sweetness. Very drinkable.

Medium body with a nice carbonation tingle.

Decent brew. They deep roasted the malt until it got that burnt edge to it, but didn't go overboard. Not sure how many I could have. but decent.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was certainly black. The beer had a fair head and good lacing. The beer smelled pretty much like a Guinness with its taste being chewy and very coffyish with a bit of a burnt or roasted hit. Not burnt in a bad way. I would certainly purchase this beer again.

Coffee-ish brown/black without much head. Black olives, licorice, Whoppers, Milk Duds... it smells dark, but not really black, if that makes sense. Weirdly like a milk stout or a mild when I was expecting more like a black IPA.

Pleasant and light, like a mild or a mix of milk stout and black lager. Cola-ish, with a touch of dark caramel and a little chocolate nougat. It's nice, but nothing more than that. Possibly a good partner for spicy Szechuan, Thai, or Indian food.
