Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Lucia’s Bodega. Appearance is very dark brown with mahogany accent--virtually black opaque--with finger-width brown foamy head with fair retention and nice sticky lacing. Aroma is dark fruits, molasses, dark chocolate, mild anise. Taste is dark fruits, dark chocolate, mild anise and some earthy hops. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with thick texture, soft-to-average carbonation and mostly sweet with mild bitter finish. Overall, a nice dark malty treat without being overly sweet or heavy.

Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Berlin, today. Fantastic, toasty, roasty, rye fuelled beer. Although about a million miles away from any traditional Kölsch I’ve ever had. Not that that detracts in any way from the wonderful beer!
