Poured a dark red amber with large brown head that subsides after a while leaving good lacing. Obviously many will want to compare this to the Abt 12, but it is quite a different beast. The first thing that strikes me is the sweetness, not in a bad way, this beer is well balanced, but you certainly notice the candy sugar, and what I would assume is a lengthy boil. Chocolatey toffee notes that cling to the back of the palate. No hops noticeable as one would expect. Overall, this is an exceptional double, that is really quite unique. Certainly worth hunting out, in my opinion, and whilst different from the Abt 12 (surly a good thing), this is none the less exceptional.

jsporrer (827) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Pours a deep Burgundy brown with a medium tan foamy head. Medium carbonation with some lacing. Aroma is crisp and tart with dark fruit and spices. Crisp and clean with a full mouth tingly feel. Smooth with dark fruity taste and a nice finish. Nice lingering aftertaste. Very enjoyable. Better than the Pater 6.
