look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Nice looking, good light brown head and lace, nearly black, slightly auburn brown clear color.

Aroma is light but slightly roasty, with a little cocoa and burnt malts.

The burnt malts are more prevalent in the flavor, along with a nice roasty component, a little cocoa and coffee.

Could be a little thicker, body is light and a bit watery, but carbonation is ample.

Overall it's a pretty decent beer. While spoetzl hasn't produced any world class beers that I've tried, their beers aren't bad, and aren't too expensive. Plus it's locally produced here.

Purchased in Laurel MS at the Corner Market..
Pours a near black, with a tan head that barely lasted a New York minute. Smell comes in with some black licorice, and some cocoa beans.
Taste picks up some burnt malts and little else.
Mouthfeel is thin, with very little body. Was expecting more.
