MJ's 1999 "Guide" gave this 3 of 4 stars saying it was "rich, malty, chocolatey and perilously drinkable at almost Bock strength."

Delicious. Flavorful and aromatic at a serving temp of 50-55 deg F. Smooth without bitterness. Not hoppy but you can taste a hint of hops. A malty flavor throughout. I can enjoy one over 30 minutes or drag it over an hour. Best of all, I can drink these all day/evening.

Not a huge fan of dark beers but enjoyed this one. Smooth and not too overboard on flavor.

poured dark brown.

smells bready, with sugar, or something sweet. really, dark bread wins over anything else.

taste is sweet and mild. nothing bitter. almost a hint of smoke to it.

nothing remarkable here, but an easy quaffer.
