This is one of my favorite brews to have when I go to Fat Heads. Because the restaurant is really far from home, I usually cannot drink anything too big, and this one is very satisfying even though it won't get you wasted (unless you have several).

It's pretty and dark with decent head. The aroma is right where it should be plus a little extra malty roasty smell. The taste similarly is well balanced yet very interesting. It goes down quite easily, and it would be nice to drink a couple liters of it some time, but since I live 41 miles away (and no longer work in the area), I really need to limit my intake when I go there.

Highly recommended.

4 Oz pour on tap.

A: Light brown black body with a light off white head.

S: light grains malts a little hoppy.

T: tastes a lot like a mild but even more watery and with a floral Hop bite on the end.

M: thin light

O: I was not too impressed with this beer. I would drink an English Mild over this any day.

From tap at Fat Head's Saloon South Side Pittsburgh. Unfortunately ate their buffalo sauce cauliflower (which are excellent) which killed my taste buds. From what I can tell, this is a smooth, drinkable offering!

Jet black. Pretty smooth and close to a stout in look and taste. A lot of carbonation but would definitely order again.
