Bottle. Pours a dark amber hue with small head that deminished quickly. Overly carbonated but otherwise a nice malty sweetness. Finally something good from cincy.

Smooth and delightful. rich with a wonderful lingering aftertaste. The flavor is enhanced as the beer warms up a bit. I plan to have this beer again, directly off the storage shelf at 55~60 degrees in the next few days!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent orangish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet and malty with notes of caramel. Good on the palate. A solid example of the style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good, but not one of the best, dark lagers. Smells of coffee, cherries and strawberries. Pours a beautiful maroon, with a tan head. Taste is fruity and malty, lots of cherries, with a slightly weird lingering aftertaste. Had in the bottle from beer of the month.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of caramel, pumpernickel, slight toast and little chocolate. Appearance is deep, rusty red brown with slightly sticky tan head. The flavor was mostly caramel and bread up front; the finish was moderately dry. Palate was medium, creamy and soft. Another solid Moerlein beer in the German tradition.

pours a deep brown with ruby edges. Sweet caramel and roasted malt dominate the aroma. Smooth and creamy, with caramel, roasted malt, and a bit of bittersweet chocolate. Perhaps a touch of smoke, too, but definitely not enough to make this a Schwarzbier.
Tasty and balanced, and with just 5% ABV, you can enjoy Barabarossa all day
