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.

T-Light roasted taste that was somewhat malty and had a slightly hop bitter aftertaste that faded back to a roast finish
M-watery with low carbonation, and medium body
O-has flavor and was a good beer

A tan froth quickly folds into a thin layer atop this dark brown brew. Aroma consists of caramel malt and milk chocolate. Tastes of grain, roasted malt, subtle dark chocolate and tea. Light bodied and smooth. This is a flavorless beer with no oomph. Moving on...
