On draft at Buffalo Wild Wings in Lubbock, TX.
The beer is black with a half inch of beige head. The aroma offers light roast, chocolate, lager yeast, bread. Creamy feel and nice balance. Bready chocolates. Light to medium bodied with fairly low carbonation. Silky smooth and easy drinking. Good stuff.
Serving type: on-tap

Very dark brown in the glass. A beige sort of foam and surprisingly nice lacing and pleasantly sudsy as you sip. Interesting aroma of dark malt and cereal.
The dark taste is the main event. There is a bitterish, even sourish burnt flavor. I think there is more of that flavor than warranted by the style, but it's appropriately light bodied, more like a lager. Quite grainy, which is rather pleasant. A touch of malty sweetness that keeps this from getting to dry, but it's on the acidic side. Not one of my favorites.
From the 12 oz bottle bought at Leonard's in Lubbock.

When an ugly pug is on a beer, you must try it.
Appearance - A beautiful dark brown to silky black that has a nice milk chocolate head
Smell - Great hints of coffee, hazelnut, chocolate and some caramel
Taste - The flavor is not nearly as good as the smell unfortunately. The taste is of light coffee and licorice. It seems watered down
Mouthfeel - Where the taste lacks, the mouth feel and smell perk it back up.
Overall - A nice drinker but really lacking the taste I was expecting
