From the 330 ml. bottle with an expiration date of 25 Feb 2017. Sampled on September 30, 2016.

The pour is a highly attractive deep amber-red tone with a long-lasting fluffy tan head.

Big roasted malt aroma on the nose along with maybe molasses, dark bread, and a low to no hop profile.

Light body.

I thought that it might taste sweeter. It certainly was malt forward in the taste but not as much as the aroma suggested it would be. Clean finish.

Great color like an English nut brown. Head is almost white and nearly nonexistent. In the smell I mostly get wet hay. The taste is skewed too much to the sweet malt without enough hops to properly balance it. The flavor is not very complex. Undoubtedly a beer you could drink a lot of without your tastebuds burning out. Probably a good beer for he beach or a very hot day.

Dark colored of course. smelled excellent, overwhelmingly of malt. Tasted as expected: nice, rich and malty. Lacked the almost syrupy mouth feel a lot of American malty beers have. At 8 bucks for a 6 pack it was great for a cool, late evening BBQ, but it doesn't really stand out for the style.

L: Very nice color, deep dark brown, clear but you can't see through the glass. Almost no head.

S: The aroma jumps right out of the glass into your nose. Some caramel/toffee notes, dark chocolate, malts.

T: Great taste, similar to the taste. Dark chocolate-caramel, coffee, roasted malts. I'd describe it as a deep flavor.

F: Slightly creamy with due carbonation.

Overall, it's one of my favorite beers. Affordable, great taste, great dark lager.
