Pours a very nice ruby red with a small off-white head.

Smells of roasted malt and molasses

Nice creamy mouth feel

Tastes is sweet and nutty with very smooth finish.

This is an an excellent brew overall with a wonderfully complex flavor and a very smooth finish.

Pours a beautiful, medium dark, hazy, mahogany-brown. Two inch, tan, creamy, persistent head forms. Restrained nose. Where are the aromatic hops? Medium-full body. Sweet malt, caramel, and toffee on the palate. Almost too sweet - would like some bitter contrast. Nice Belgian lace. Extended lingering with hints of whole-grain bread. It is a filling and thirst-quenching ale.

Bottle poured into a pokal.

A- 1-1/2 finger head fizzes and drops to a light film. Clean, chestnut body. lots of spritzy carbonation. The head is ever changing as the heavy carbonation continues to rush to the surface. Decent stick.

S- really malty. Mix of brown sugar and toasted nuts. Quite robust, really.

T- Follows aroma. Lots of roasted nuts and brown sugar/caramel. Lighter fruity tones, dark fruit, like overripe plums. Slight spicy, peppery hops.

M- Moderate body. Heavy, though delicate carbonation.

O- It's an easy drinker. While not well versed in altbiers, it's much nuttier and sweeter than expected. I could be fooled for some sort of nut brown even. Nice late winter, early spring beer. I can even see similarities to the Salvator I've been enjoying through Lent (even with obvious style difference). I'd buy it again when I crave a malty treat.
