Split at tasting. Roast - almost burnt - malt. Notes of dark roast coffee and cocoa husks. Needs a bit more body but generally well made.Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 89) badge! Earned the To The Port (Level 3) badge!
Split at tasting. Smells old & oxidized. Flavour is short and strongly bitter. Not much subtlety or complexity. Not to my taste. Ah well.Earned the 99 Bottles (Level 40) badge! Earned the The Wine of Beers (Level 3) badge!
Much preferred this on tap at the brewpub. Bottle is less bright and clean, seems like it might have lactose, just generally less enjoyable.

Feels like a Pils with the volume turned down - lighter body, subtler aroma, softer flavour. Well put together, though, and quite tasty.

Starts with raisin & prune sweetness, joined by roast malt & chocolate & hint of baked apple. Finishes with simple but pleasant tartness.
