Nice color, and had a decent head. Smell of a chocolate/ coffee, which the taste follows. Since I don't like or drink coffee, this wasn't good to me. In fact poured it down the drain.

Another courtesy of Kurmaraja. Poured into straight pint glass. Poured a very dark brown, just shy of black, with 1/4 inch of light brown head that had decent retention and low lacing.

The aroma was very good, nice, rich, full, grainy malts, with some roasty background notes. On the tongue however, those roast tones (BTW, wouldn't The Roast Tones be a great name for a throw back R&B band?) totally took over. The malt held up a bit across the front and middle, but, at the back end, were so strong as to be coffee-ish, and I hate coffee.

The body was on the full side of medium, definitely a tongue-coater, but not heavy or sticky, although the roast aspects did linger. Drinkability was pretty good, although that will vary with ones tolerance of the roast/coffee aspects. Overall, a very nice brew, one i think most beer drinkers would enjoy more than I did, especially if they're java junkies.

Lafayette, IN. Bought six pack from Meijer. Glad to try a local (Indianapolis) brew. Packaging was cool. Found this brew had too much metallic taste. Will need to try again and see if my taste buds were off.
