Looks like dirty water when it pours. This is just an amber ale really, but darker in color. some malts, a little metal, a bit different from the other standard German spices. Okay. DutchDrebus (5952) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2013

Bottle at Wildeman. Dark brown body that looks like a soda, with a nice head. A malty and toffee nose. Watery and prickly texture. Taste of malts, caramel. Pretty good. ganache (5852) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle. Aroma of slight veggies, somewhat weak, slight fruitiness. Some malt but not a lot. Pours dark amber, almost nut-brown, eggshell head. Taste of dark malts, a little sweet caramel, light hops (this is essentially a Dunkel). Thick, prickly, slightly oily feel, medium body, and a dry, dark aftertaste. Faint fruitiness. Not bad for a session, but this one needed more punch.
