Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a mahogany color with a medium sized brown head. The aroma was sour, tangy and had a hint of chocolate and a vegetal undertone. The flavor was malty and roasty with a hint of dry chocolate and molasses. The finish was long roasty malts and molasses.

Bottled. Poured slightly hazy medium copper with a lovely initial cap of beige head (settled down to a film after a minute or so. The aroma was sweet with a hefty dose of aged caramel and dark fruit.. held in check by what was either herbal hoppage or the malts breaking down a bit (either way it worked).. warmth brought out a bit of chocolate. The flavor was supported in a very positive way by the same aged caramel with significantly lesser notes of dark fruit and baker’s chocolate.. peppery alcohol and herbal bitterness surrounded, and carried through the longer finish.. almost too hot at the end, but it held up. A tad heavier than medium-bodied on the palate with a syrupy feel and lower carbonation.. maybe a bit too hot, but otherwise quite enjoyable.

12 oz bottle. Poured into a mug. A somewhat clear amber in color. Medium carbonation. Sweet malt in the nose, lots of malt in the taste. A very light hop in the finish. Body is much thinner then the German varieties. A good beer by a American brewery however, not as superior as the true German brews of the style. You do not taste the alcohol as it states that it is 7.9% ABV.
