A top-fermented, dark ale brewed in the true German style. Made with Pale 2-row, Munich, Caramel, Chocolate and Black barley malts, this is a full-bodied ale that offers great depth. The word ‘delicious’ doesn’t do this beer justice.
Now available as a Winter seasonal in November and December.

unclemike (2924) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Poured with a nice, full, thick, rich, foamy, textured, light tan head with lots of lace. Odd definite Bavarian Weisse aroma and flavor character to it. Other than that pretty decent. NIce softness to it, both in flavor and body. Good beer.

deyholla (10214) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2015

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours a rich brown with small off-white head. Lacing. Nose is grainy, with a touch of flowery hops and some deeper yeast notes - aroma is somewhat like a whiff of multigrain bread baking. Flavor is simple but good, some caramel notes, a little fruitness, crusty bread, herbs, just a touch of smokiness before a palate cleansing earthy herbal bitterness. A very good old world ale that is rewarding and quaffable.

Nero55 (919) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2015

nellycale (213) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2015
From bottle. Pours a clear brownish-amber hue with an average beige head and some lacing. Aroma is full of caramel, some grains, straw,and dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet, slight bitter chocolate, some earthiness with a dry finish which lets the hops come out. A little bitter zap on the tongue but enjoyable. Medium body with good carbonation. Not chewy at all compared to a brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
