crajun (1121) - , Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2015 11/15 rerate. draft at square burger in Mck. remained at 3.8. bumped aroma - this has a unique aroma and flavor that I can’t place - some said graham crackers?? definitely has a unique aroma/taste. not as much chocolate but a malty smooth drink I am a fandraft at gingerman plano - new style for me; DAMN that was good - dark pour with ruby edges taste was malty sweet; very silky 4 on palate and call me crazy but there was a chalky chocolate flavor at end - had to ask if this was a bock or stout? actually seemed like a cross between the two. note to self: drink more Fanconia...

Brown and cloudy with a good head. Taste is very smooth with toasted malt and not much bitterness. I went back for more over this and it may be my fave Franconia brew.
