Pours a rich black, dark and glassy. Not much in the nose except roasted grains, burnt coffee. Very malty and rich, molassesy with a light gentle hop bitterness near the end. Oily and rich mouthfeel. not especially complex
or nuanced. Not too impressed with this one.

Fireman's Brew Brunette Beer from Fireman's Brew, Inc. pours a midnight red from a 12 fl. oz. dark amber brown glass bottle with a pry off crown. Head went to about 2 fingers of light tanish brown fine foam bubbles that settled out to a full ring with islands and lacing of before mentioned foam.
Nose is of fig and plumb with a touch of roasted walnut and the vapors of alcohol.
I was not expecting a citrus sour note at all, but there was a distinct sour up front. The sour was not untoward, but unexpected. Sweet roasted malt with fig follow.
Aftertaste is a lingering subtle dry sour with a mix of sundry fruits.
Not a bad brew, but not Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock.

On tap at Slater's 50/50 in Pasadena, CA.
Pours a hazy brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, roasted malt, and slight coffee aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the smells are a bit muted.
