An excellent beer. Taste of roasted coffee. Very smooth. A bit like guiness with more flavor and less wateriness. Aftertaste is a bit bitter and lasts a decent amount of time. Smells like it tastes (good).

The bottle features a great design: a pug with an eye patch and an underbite, sticking out its tongue.

Easily one of my new favorites for the price and availability. You can even buy it in drugstores in texas. It's brewed locally and I have never seen it outside texas.

A: Dark almost pitch black with some light rays going through.

S: Roast and toast!

T: Roasty malts, burnt bread, nutts, saltine crackers, pretzel, and a solid chocolate background. But the flavor is not sticking like i'd like it to.

M: Medium I'd say. Not bad.

O: A great beer! This is one of those that you can session pretty often. I love the black lagers and this one did not disappoint.
