A: The beer is black when viewed from afar and is a little hazy brown at the bottom of the glass. It poured with a quarter finger higher tan head that has good retention properties.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is mostly dominated by flavors of dark malts.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has some dryness in the finish.
O: This beer is quite flavorful for a dark lager.

Serving type: can

Appearance: Pours with a spectacular bubble show that crowns that coffee colored liquid with a two finger beige head; shards of lacing

Smell: Roasted malt, cocoa and earthy tones

Taste: Roasted malt and dark bread flavors forward with a hint of cocoa developing; earthy bitterness with a bit of coffee, after the swallow; the malt flavor returns to provide the finishing touch

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A nice lager for the change of seasons

Thanks, devoured by vermin, for the opportunity

On draft at the brewery - 25cl pour

Very dark brown, almost black but you can see through the corners of the glass. Nice foamy tan head. Mild roasty aroma. Nice flavor of bready malt, some chocolate in there. Pleasant mouthfeel, easy drinking.

On tap at the brewery. Almost black, but a little transparent. Head is off white. Smells of roast with some brown malt and chocolate. Bright doughy notes too. Tastes more straightforward. Roasted bitter malts up front. A little bit of bread and toast behind with some coffee bitterness in the finish. Light body. Simple and flavorful.
