Pour is completely black with inch of dense tan head. Smells like ferrous, watery wheat. Light bodied mouth feel. Not much in the way of flavor. Toasty, grassy lager. Finish is only the slightest bit sour but fairly clean.

This is easily one of the best beers that leinenkugels produces. The roasted malt flavor is understated though apparent. Sweet coffee and bread with a nice, oily mouthfeel.

Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has roasty malts with hints of caramel and fruit...grass and straw. Flavor has roasty malts atop straw and grass. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is slightly roasty grass.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark nut brown with a slight ruby hue and a thin bit of off-white head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and some slight piney hops. Taste is light bitter. Some dark chocolate, pine hops and coffee on the end. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin yet slick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, wow. This is much better than I thought it would be. Probably the best year-round beer Leinie makes.

Nice clean dark lager, reminiscent of a cross between a dunkel and a schwartzbier. Roast and malt. Deep brown with a small head. Bitter with some finishing sweetness. Balanced with a notable crispness.
