Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a dark ruby brown. A cream colored head recedes to a film leaving very light lacing.

The aroma is of toasty grains with faint chocolate.

The beer tastes like the aroma but with a little sour tang in the finish.

Mouthfeel is really carbonated.

Overall, this beer suffers from green bottle syndrome, but is otherwise sessionable when in the mood for the style.

Creamy brown pour from the bottle with very little head. Aroma is a sweet roasty malt, rather rich, with some spice. Flavor follows closely, with deep sweet malt flavors, roast, watery chocolate. The finish here is a bit rough just like other St. Pauli's. Mouthfeel is full bodied for the ABV, with adequate carbonation. I find this very similar to Leinie's dark, though not nearly as pleasant. Can't recommend this one, but not nearly as awful as the regular St. Pauli.
