TIZ THA SEASON! This beer is great for the winter. Not to dark in color when poured out light heat that hangs an min or so any way the smell is great. When you smell this beer you think it will be light in hops and high in malts. It is a very good brew! It has a sweet nutty finish with a nicely balanced hops behind it. PICK 6 At Kroger people this is the best way to find these great craft beers. Cheers!

this is one of my favorite beers, it sucks it's not in jersey. in the military, had some great beers, and this is one of them. it is outstanding, great flavor, nice and thick. i had it a few weeks ago in TX, one thing good about Wichita falls. looking forward to when it makes it's way to NJ.

Black lagers are hard to come by, and New Belgium does a great job on this one. Dark in color but the mouth feel is super light.
