4.13/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Draft service into a long-stemmed fluted tulip glass at Churchill's in San Marcos.

A: Slightly hazy, dark garnet-tinted brown color with one finger of fine, light beige foam head. Moderate lacing remains on the glass.

S: Spicy, with cloves that stand out and also complement the mild roast. Yeast is also present, adding some contrasting brightness. No alcohol is detected.

T: Begins off-dry, with nutty brown malt and yeast phenolics that are mild compared to the aroma. Fine tartness emerges in the soft bready middle that retains some nutshell and even mild chocolate roasted character. The finish is similarly soft, with cloves and fading dark fruit. No alcohol is detected.

M: Medium viscosity, balanced on the palate showing both acidic and coating aspects, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This is definitely one of the most unexpected styles to come out of the Lips of Faith series thus far, being neither sour, or barrel-aged, or even Belgian-inspired. In execution it is really good, bringing a focused but expected collection of sensory qualities to a beer that is deceptively easy-going at 9% abv. Although flavors can't quite live up to the intensity promised by the smell, this beer's different facets work together in a practiced--almost engineered--fashion. Doubly appropriate, considering its German pedigree.

Serving type: on-tap

4.4/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours pretty dark for the style (more like a porter) but makes up for that with a foamy cap that splashes inordinate amounts of lace around

Smell: Caramel and chocolate-dipped bananas with toasted wheat bread underneath

Taste: Caramel and wheat toast with bananas dusted with chocolate arriving in the mid-palate; after the swallow, peppery yeast phenols start to add complexity though the finish has plenty of caramel and banana

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body; rather creamy, with moderate carbonation

Overall: I suspect most of the bottles of this are long gone by now but I am glad I kept this in the back of the fridge for so long as the alcohol has tempered and it is drinking superbly
