A: Pours a ruby hued mahogany color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a tiny cap

S: Some roastiness and dark fruit come through, mostly cherry pits or almonds. Definitely malty and bready

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a bit of the fruitiness and bready malty notes and finishes with a bit of the roast and cherry/almond notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth

O: This one surprised me. It's very easy to drink and quite flavorful. Worth a shot if you're into dark lagers or dark beers in general

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer looks like a cola, with tons of ruby in an otherwise dark brown body. A cream colored head recedes to a film, no lacing.

Lots of toffee and Tootsie Roll chocolate in the nose.

Tastes much like the aroma with a metallic tang in the finish. A large chocolate component in the taste.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied.

Overall, not bad considering.
