Was drinkable. Not the best brew in their line up but was worth trying.

Pours a clear super dark crimson-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, roasted nut, and slight char aromas. Taste is much the same with char and roasted nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a nice aroma, but the flavors are a bit bland and watery in my opinion.
