Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Very dark brown color with garnet notes. Multi-finger beige head. Nice aromas of spicy hop and dark fruit. Medium body with very vigorous carbonation. Tastes of brown sugar, burnt caramel, and some low level spice. Makes the mouth tingle. Finishes brown sweet, but not sickly so, the burnt malt bittering a mediation. Still think there is spice, but can’t pin that down. It is a very tasty lager.
