look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark, clear ruby against the light, dark brown, almost black in normal light. A wispy tan/grey head leaves occasional rings on the glass. Aroma starts with bitter cranberry and slight raspberry, with a cherry cola and meaty, umami aroma, and a slight smoke. Flavor is full of malt. A tangy, burnt flavor lingers on the back of the throat the whole time with a dominant burnt biscuit and toffee flavor. There is a certain flavor that is present in all dark German beers that is tart and slightly smoky, this has a lot of it. It's uniquely German, but the strong hop profile makes it more palatable to me. The bitterness is balanced, which ultimately makes this an aggressively malty beer. It's smooth and creamy with a light body for how dark it is and how high the ABV is. Very drinkable and pleasantly surprising winter beer.

Note to reader: I had a raspberry candy before imbibing and after review of other reviews, this may have had an affect on my perception of this beer.
