This beer surprised me. I bought it in a Spaten mix pack, and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Deep brown body with a thin tan head that leaves some spotty lacing. Nice, sweet aroma of carmel, brown sugar and maybe a touch of smoke. Full mouthfeel, slick and smooth. The flavor just jumps out. Brown sugar, dark fruits, and just a bite of smoke at the end. Wow! I picked up on the alcohol content, but it’s only warming, not overpowering. Very tasty brew.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark copper color with a small tan head. The aroma is malt and caramel. The taste is an excellent match to the aroma with a small amount of hops. An excellent beer.

There was a time I drank this beer with my old pal Chris Blado, god rest his wisconsin soul. We were playing music in the old Atlatl studio, thats a place of worship for you yahoo numbskulls who don’t know an ant eater from an aardvark. I remember enjoying myself and then really enjoying myself. Feeling very drunk. This sweet beer, malty, smooth, pantry full of caramel, sneaks up on you. With a APV of almost 8% a couple of these will put petite men, like Chris and I, under the table fast.

Sweet fruity aroma, dark fruits. Rich maltiness too. Tastes extremely malty, but the palate is quite light. Goes down remarkably easily. Malts almost kvassy. A malt overload - nicey-nice!

Nothing spectacular but a good decent beer. ABV is 7.6% which is good. Although I prefer an 8.0% or higher. Nevertheless, has a good taste to it.

Sits great on the tongue. Nice dark color with a roasted flavor. It’s fairly high in alcohol so that never hurts, right?
