Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Just cause it's dark and German doesn't mean it's an alt. Based on the obscure Kottbusser style of beer, this surprisingly dry beer retains all the aroma and nuance of honey (from bees) and molasses (not from bees) creating a perception of sweetness through cool, controlled fermentation. Because we're sweet enough damn it.

Oakey and a bit malty with a dark color and light body. Flavor isn't super full, but it's drinkable. I don't think I'd drink it again unless my only alternatives were cheap domestics.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada Curved Pint Glass

A: A nice solid dark brown

S: Smells like oats, molasses, and honey.

T: The flavors here are all muted and soft. The oats and molasses mostly dominate.

M: Smooth with just the tiniest of carbonation.

O: This is going to make some great pancakes.

Sorta underwhelming. Considering what the listed ingredients were, I thought it would be a bit more sweet and/or out there. Was good, but let down my high expectations.
