L-a very dark brown with a red tint when held up to the light
S- roast aroma
T-roast in not heavy and come in stronger in the aftertaste. Malt is there but the roasted taste just takes over
F-light body and medium carbonation
O-a good beer

Also doing a glass comparison.

Visual: Foamy cream head, fades quickly in all but wheat beer glass, with a twirl the head lingers on all glasses.
-Nose: best out of pils glass, somewhat sour out of tulip glass
-Taste: All very similar. Seemingly flat out of the sheet beer glass. tinge of bitter aftertaste

Poured a really dark brown body with reddish highlights, along with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt. Tastes almost exclusively of roasted malt and not much else. Pretty boring honestly and feels kinda watery. Overall it was fairly disappointing, kind of surprising considering I have loved every other beer I have tried from this brewery and I typically love dark beers like black lagers, stouts, and porters

Not a bad beer. Seems like it's not as aggressive as it looks. I'd have another
