Fuller mouthfeel than the maerzen. Rounder, softer, and a touch sweeter. The smoke isn't nearly as intense, and the lighter malts come through, with a good a little hop flavor in the aftertaste.
Great beer, and a great change of pace from the standard maerzen.

Bought fresh from the brewery on Ash Wednesday. Served in a handled mug, unlike their normal beers which are served in a glass. Slightly cloudy, slightly less smoky and slightly stronger than their regular offerings, this is a beer to try and enjoy!! Note: available only during Lent!!

Serving: on tap at The Hay Merchant, poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance: Deep, dark amber brown. Fine, off-white foam heat with good lacing.

Smell: Meaty, wood smoke aroma.

Taste: Moderate smokiness interlaces caramel and sweet, fruity malt. Slight tartness and bitterness emerge before a dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation.

Overall: Very flavorful and complex while still extremely drinkable. Although the smoke is present throughout, it never dominates, only complements a solid malty base.
