On-tap at the brewery in Gloucester.

A - Dark as a beer can be with a light brown, foamy head.

S/T - Dark, roasty goodness. Heavy roasted malt.

M - Smooth with good carbonation. Highly drinkable.

A solid example of the style that I could enjoy several times over. And it went well with a cup of chowder!

pours a bit mild with a head of about a finger. Pours exactly like coca cola. Lean body with a nice feel with a nose more toasted then chocolate. Palate is mostly toasted malt and some very mild molasses notes. Brown sugar that doesn't slow down the drinking process in feel. Lager body. Some chocolate and coffee but not some to make you feel on the side of porter. Nice balance.

On tap last night at the brewery. Served in a standard pint glass. Dark brown colored body. Not much of a head. A decent amount of carbonation. Smell had a faint aroma of coffee. Taste was very pleasing. There was a very low roasted malt bitterness in this beer, so it was much smoother than other examples of this style I have tried. Just a hint of chocolate flavor at the finish. Mouthfeel had a nice body to it. This was a very drinkable beer. It had a smooth flavor, was light in body, and lastly the abv was relatively low. This was the better of two beers I tried last night.
