Efes Dark (7/10)

Efes Dark is a dark lager from Turkey, which is fitting since I had it at a Turkish restaurant here in Columbus (Shish Kabob on Bethel Road... Recommended!).

It is pitch black in color, with virtually no head, and minimal lacing which vanishes quickly.

The flavor is quite good. There is a strong chocolate note to it, with a touch of smokiness as well. Overall, I find it well balanced.

Beer Advocate rates it A 72, or "average". I liked it a bit more than they did. I would rate it above average, and a beer I would be happy to have again.

I've not encountered it for sale in bottles yet, at least that I can recall.

ABV: 6.5%
IBU: 14
My Rating: 7/10
