From 22oz bomber to Mikasa Weizen glass

The brew is dark brown in color as the pour forms a rich, fluffy, two-inch head that leaves lacing all over the glass. I love these Mikasa glasses because I can fit a full bomber in one pour.

The nose is rich, ripe fruit, especially bananas and raisins, accented by holiday spices, especially nutmeg and clove. Touches of alcohol warmth poke through.

The flavors follow but there's a lot more toffee and toasty malts than the nose. The bananas and cloves are there, but a distinct note of cracked pepper truncates any lingering sweetness. And it dries this palate. Yeah, interesting flavor profile. Alcohol is far more masked than expected, especially given the rich, penetrating complexion. Finishes short and balanced.

Honestly, this is one of the best examples of the style I've come across. Stays true to the expected dunkel flavors but spruces things up a bit - sweet aspects are accented by drying spice; the mouthfeel is rich and chewy. Nice job once again with the Lips of Faith series once again.
