I Liter flip-top bottle served in a dimpled mug. Dark brown with a short khaki head. Semi-sweet chocolate malt nose and subtle dark fruit. Medium sweet flavor with light bitter hops. Medium body, thick texture, and a medium roasty, toasty, light bitter finish.

32oz Fliptop bottle... Poured dark near black with a thin, khaki head. Nice drinking german-style beer. Toasted sweetness with some smoke and dark grains and sugars. Not totally complex by fits the bill for the style. Nice Laurelwood winter seasonal and can’t complain about this one.
