Lump of coal pours a black color with a small white lacing head. There is a weak toffee aroma. The taste also is weak, lots of toffee, with a very dry aftertaste. Weak watery flavors. Overall its decent, weak and watery, but in no ways horrible, a bit borring.

500 ml bottle into a tulip glass. The neck reads "F12 279 02:53" which I can only assume is a date code meaning its from October 5th, 2012.
Pours a nearly black body that appears clear dark red under the light with a fingers worth of khaki foam. Looks good. Leaves behind some patches of foam and some nice lacing. Smell is awfully mundane. Sweet milk chocolate, faint vanilla, bitter roasted malts and not much else. Taste follows the nose with the addition of smoke smoke and a plasticy finish. Like a muted rauchbier with some artificial vanilla. Why is it so roasty? The saving grace here is the mouth feel which is full and creamy. Not a big fan of this one. The light smokey thing it has going on is less than welcome in my opinion.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a cola color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, a bit of coffee. Taste is coffee, some chocolate, alcohol is well hidden. smooth and easy drinking. Feels a bit creamy in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
