Very average dark lager. It's slightly roasty with a slightly chocolatey sweetness. The finish comes through mildly herbal and roasty. overall it's not bad, but I won't be going back to it.

Creamy dark, interesting formulation. Pours looking like a darker brown ale, not porter territory. Aroma hit those Burton pond, earth and tobacco notes.

Taste, more of that rounded earthiness, tobaccy chew, plenty of roasted malt. What is going on here? I didn't find much to be creamy about this. The heavy roast and earthiness were more abrasive than anything.
