This beer is not too dark at all. In fact, it is proving to be lighter than what I first expected.
No "roastiness" at all. Even with the 8 ounces of roast barley.
Very nice aroma. Have not sample the ale yet, just the lager.
edit: There is a hint of roast aroma, with the sample sitting at 80 degrees. At serving temp, very little if any roast.
