Pours a brown color with a carmel color tint. Aroma is mildly sweet with a mild malt aroma. Taste is simple with a quickly dissipating sweet nut aftertaste. The caramel dunkel comes thru with this beer, easily known this beer is European.

M: medium body and carbonation, but a tad less body than ideal; slightly harsh feel.
S: sweet medium malt; a bit floral and lightly hoppy. Improves with warming.
T: similar to aroma, but with a more pronounced flavor from both the malt and the hops. Nicely balanced.
O: a finely crafted beer with great balance.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours a fiery copper amber color with ruby hues. The light passes through effortlessly and it has the look of glowing embers. Dark but with perfect clarity. There are plenty of bubbles rising up form the bottom and a fat head of almost tan foam that fell slowly and left good lace.
Nose is wonderful. it’s dark fruit but lightly. It’s sweet sugary malt. Light caramel. Toasted grain, a bit nutty and a the lightest scent like coffee or unsweetened chocolate. To the delight of the nose there is a trace scent of lager yeast and that adds to the brightness of the nose.
The taste is absolutely superb! First thing you will notice is that the body of the beer is soft from an overall mineral quality. It’s not the least bit heavy but crisp and clean. It’s as clear on the palate as it is in the glass. The fruits are raisin and fig, but they are not heavy or too rich. The toasted grain is amazing and rich with it’s natural sweetness at the forefront and the caramel to back it up. Little bit of toffee notes underneath to add depth to the malt. Then it’s nutty and bready too. It finishes dry with the overall tastes of the malts resounding at the back palate. There is just a bit of hop herbal in the finish to help it glide so gently.
This is one amazing beer. It has an incredible lightness. It has every flavor that you love about dark beer, from dark fruit to coffee and yet it’s light. It’s not chewy, it’s not thick, it’s not too sweet. The dry finish is something to behold as all that perfect toasted grain settles in to last and linger in the aftertaste. Full, spirited and vibrant.
