  • Pours a black color with a hint of ruby red to it. Quarter inch tan head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin milky swirl of tan foam floating on top.

    Aroma is mild but I am getting some dark coco and roasted malts with an underlying sweetness.

    Taste is big in rich roasted malts up front that work into a coffee flavor on the backend with a bitter finish. Enjoyable flavors that tend to blend together and give this beer a smoothness.

    Surprisingly light body for a dark beer like this. Medium carbonation.

    Overall a tasty brew. A little weak in the aroma, but the big flavors quickly make up for it. One of my favorite beers from Sprecher. Try one!
