Pours black with a minimal white head and a touch of lacing.

Aroma smells like roasted malts added to some cheap grains.

Flavor is very malty. A touch of roasted malt and some sweetness. Again the cheap grain flavor permeates, but it isn't horrible.

Lighter on the mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

For what this is, it's fairly solid. Certainly not something I'd go for all the time, but when the only options are BMC this is a cut above.

Creamy Dark pours an almost black, dark color, with a tan head that disapated quickly. There was a bit of smokey aroma to it, but overall was weak. The taste was a little creamy, a bit smokey, and had a decent sweet malty backbone to it, but was a bit watery. Overall a decent dark beer, its enjoyable but could have been better.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very dark brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some malts and smoke. Taste is smoke up front, some malts, a hint of charcoal. Different and unexpected flavor profile. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent brew.
