Looks way darker than it tastes. Hints of molasses. Good.

I love the chive. And so I wanted to love this beer. But instead I just like it a little. Decent taste but misses the mark overall. But they done good for a first beer. I'll try they're new stuff.

Pours a very nice clean/clear dark golden brown color, very nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger fizzy light tan head, with some nice sticky lacing, which disappated quickly. The nose is malty. The taste is malty, not much going on with this one, watery. Light body, with a slightly dry/bitter finish. Overall, too macro for me.

Dark, slightly malty, finishes with a nice light hop memory

Pours an effervescent copper/brown with 2+ fingers cream colored head. Decent lacing & head retention

S: Brown bread, graininess, a little bit of iron

T: Caramel, brown bread, slight nuttiness, some leafy & herbal hops up front. Slight caramel sweetness & more herbal hoppyness as this warms. Finishes dry with a little herbal bitterness & just a whisper of charred grain

MF: Medium bodied, fairly firm carbonation

Very drinkable, not a 100% spot-on for style, but no real complaints. Worth a try

Always like a black lager, a style that imparts a dark beer to a classic style so let's give this one a whirl. Popping the top I get wafts of cocoa and roasted malt. Pours into my SAPP a light root beer color with a multi-size bubble head that recedes quickly but doesn't lace. On the taste this brew has a nice cocoa and roasted malt up front on the palate followed by an ever so slightly bitter metallic like middle and a sweet yet slightly chaulky bitter aftertaste. A very easy drinker with albeit more flavor in my opinion than your run-of-the-mill lager. A good sessioner, I would pick up again.

Good beer. I'll have one if its on a menu and nothing else appeals. Not too bad.
