This is about as close to perfection as beer gets for me. But you’ll have to either enjoy smoked beer or have an open mind to enjoy it. I LOVE smoked beer so I LOVE this. Even my father liked it and he hates anything darker than a lager. But he liked this.

Marrón oscura. Coca cola poca espuma. Aroma muy rico. Café. Fruta roja. Caramelo. Promete. Pero falla en boca. Floja pese al alcohol. Sabor agradable pero escasa fuerza. Plana. Sin carbonatacion. Sin caracter.

"this one followed the Schlenkera line-up, which perhaps was not fair, but whatrya gonna do? I really dig the common malt character of many of GDs maltier beers. it stands out in this beer, which acheived the roasted malty goodness i’ve some to expect really well. notes of chocolate and a hint of smoke, especially relatively speaking. nice dry finish. where it fell short was the baltic part. didn’t get that at all, especially at 6.2%. oh well, a pretty good beer that i was hoping would be great."
