So, yes, the bottle, name and artwork is very cheesy. And I think this beer gets a bad rap because of it.

A - Poured out a dark, dark brown color with a small, khaki colored head of foam. It left some sudsy sheets of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of chocolate and some roasty notes.

T - Mostly chocolate with caramel and a slight bitterness. It started out tasting like a porter, but as it warmed it tasted more like a Munich Dunkel Lager.

M - It was fairly crisp and sharp. A light bodied beer with a somewhat dry finish.

O - This is better than what I expected from the reviews.

Poured into a pint glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium brown color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and surface foam bearing various thicknesses. Decent lacing sticks to the glass longer than expected.

S- Lightly roasted aroma that's a bit nutty like smoked pecans. Some coffee and chocolate.

T- Initial dark malt flavor that's soon swept away by a light lager taste. The malt flavor is toasty with notes of soft chocolate while the lager flavor is watery and bland. There's also some faint caramel sweetness.

M- Medium carbonation and a surprisingly light body.

O- I can kinda see why this is so popular among non-craft drinkers but it just leaves me wanting more of the porter side and less of the pilsner.

A: The beer is very dark red in color but clear and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate amounts of roasted malt aromas in the nose along with some hints of maple syrup.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of nutty malts along with notes of roasted malts and hints of maple syrup and smoke.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer does not have much complexity in the flavors but its light body makes it very easy to drink.

A: Pours a crystal clear dark amber in color with some lighter amber colors when held up to the light. The beer has a finger tall light beige head that quickly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a small patch of thicker bubbles and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: The aroma of this beer is rather malty with some lighter notes of brown sugar and molasses sweetness.

T: This beer has flavors of roasted malts, nuttiness, and some sweetness from maple syrup/molasses. Just a touch too sweet for my tastes but there is just a very light hint of smokiness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. So much carbonation it is almost prickly.

O: This beer is nothing special but it is certainly not offensive either. The last time I had this beer, I was still an undergrad and thought this was quality craft beer - how much the world has changed in the last 20 years, especially in my appreciation of good craft beers. Easy to drink but not something I really want to have more than one during a session. Not sure I will get this one again but it was a nice walk down memory lane.

I picked up a jug of this from Woodman's in Rockford, IL in summer 2012. Pours a medium brown color with an off white foamy head. Scent is fairly malty as is the taste. Has an overall pretty dry taste but has some nice caramel hints as well. Texture is average as to be expected. Just a reasonable 32 oz jug of beer in a more rare to find style. Probably one of the more plentiful black and tan beers on the market.

very smooth, good color, nice looking bottle. It is easy to find at carryout stores in our area. Price is very good @ 2.99 a quart. It is well with-in my price range and very tasty. A dark beer with no heavy after taste. you should give this beer a try if you are into dark or great tasting smooth brew.
