Dick's Danger Ale

It's time to break into the Dick's Brewing Co. mixed 12 pack again... this time tackling the ambiguously named Dick's Danger Ale.

Dick's Danger Ale poured into the glass with a very slight head that quickly dissipated and had a dark, murky look the color of root beer.  The nose was very hoppy with an earthy herb I can't quite put my finger on.  On the tongue, the hop greeting was present but a little flat and quickly faded to a thick feeling but watery tasting roasted malt, stout like flavor.  There was a lingering burnt taste to it. 

Looking at the description above, it wouldn't seem there is much recommend about this beer, but I can't say it was a bad beer... just a bit flat and not quite coming through as a distinct beer.  I cheated for this beer and actually read the description after the tasting... half pale ale and half stout is a good description for what I tasted, but one has to wonder why they even bothered.  It lacks the boldness of either.

ABV 5.2 (note the manufacturer's site was 4.5)
OG 1.053
TG 1.01
