Seemed like it wanted to be a good beer but on tasting it reminded me of a black lager mixed with water. Seemed empty to me with not much to it. I was rather dissatisfied.
I would appreciate some body and flavor, give me something to like or dislike.

I am not going into details about this beer. I am not going to pick on the company and what they may be trying to do. I am just goint to say this was a very underwhelming beer. I really didn't care for it, and don't want to try it again. I have tasted better Black Lagers, which is almost as good as a stout. Mild stout but good.

Don't be messin' with this beer, man. You're better than that. No recs to listen to this. Just turn on a shitty radio station.
