This rich, malty dark ale is reminiscent of the smooth ales produced by the Weltenberg Brewery in Northwestern Germany. The Pilsner, Caravienne, Munich, Chocolate, Black malts and Roasted Barley give this great dark ale a creamy, roasted malt flavor, which is perfectly balanced with Cascade hops.

A soft black with low opacity and a white head. Very little roast, very little body, and no depth. No bitter aftertaste though. Not worth your time.

Looks beautiful -- dark brown with a creamy head -- but there’s not much depth on the palate. Nothing bad, just nothing exciting.

Pours dark brown with some red highlights. The head is cream-colored. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and some dark fruit. The flavor is roasted/burnt malt with some chocolate and possibly some coffee. The finish is roasted and there is not much hop character. Thin-medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Somewhat watery overall mouthfeel.
