Though a Black Lager, color is more deep brown. Pours nice with nice head. Head dies down quickly though and carbonation is light. Smell is of coffee and toffee. Mouthful is light. Malty taste with those same roasted qualities of coffee and herbs but not real strong though and body is light. Easy drinking but only partially satisfying.

Poured from bottle to beer mug.
Pours jet black with an off white head that retreats to the ring of the glass and then disappears.
Smells is mostly coffee and burnt sugar. There is a little off smell there though. Perhaps from fermentation a touch too warm.
Taste is decent. The hops flavor is pretty good and the coffee and earthy flavors at the end are a nice touch. The hops have a good earthy feel and taste, but there taste like some off flavors from the fermentation.
I was hoping for a better brew here. A little disapointing though.

Served in a bottle poured into a pint glass.
A- Very dark black, brown coloring with a couple finger width's of head.
S- Somewhat hoppy scent initially, but then it becomes a strong chocolate/caramel scent.
T- Predominantly a chocolate/caramel taste with a slightly dry finish.
M- Hoppy feel, but somewhat creamy as well.
D- Fairly drinkable, can probably have two to three of these in a sitting.
Overall a pretty solid beer. Not a huge fan of this style, but I kinda like this beer.

Served on tap at random Dallas bar in a shaker pint.
Pour: Dark brown with a two finger tan head. Sticks around for a while.
Smell: Roasted malts and smoke and that pretty much about it.
Taste: Yup follows the nose to a T. Pretty simple.
Mouthfeel: Creamy but very drinkable. Again pretty simple.
Overall: Got this as an alternative to the BMC on tap, and it was clearly better than those offerings, but again - only got it because it was all I could, and would only get again in the same situation.
