3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a dark amber with light tan head. Settles in minutes with minimal lacing. Aroma is nutty, malty, sweet. Flavor is quite sweet, fading into a nutty, toffee malt finish. Flavor is fairly mild throughout, drinkable. Quite nutty, malty, and caramel as it warmed. Moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texture. An interesting combination of lager texture and strong malt profile. Definitely different, admittedly I haven’t had many of this style, but I appreciated this beer a lot more the second time around.

I stumbled across this beer in Taos, NM at a liquor store that had no business holding this kind of beer. I’m glad it did, though. This is still a standard against which I compare dark lagers. Rich, full bodied, great balance, and slightly sweet.
