Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Draft in Strassgiech. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (dark chocolate, roasted grain/nuts), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of vanilla and magic. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Another one of those experiences where I couldn’t quite come up with ample words. A restrained but very elegant example. On the sweet side but not at all syrupy or fatiguing. A "grower"...one where I originally just muttered "nice" in light of Andy’s mid/high-4 quality "shower" beers being already out on the table, but then found myself being more attracted to as I returned to the glass each time.
