Pretty light for the style... it is more of an bernsteinfarben than a dunkel... pretty light in flavor as well.. there needs to be a lot more malt in this baby. Sam Adams usually makes some pretty outstanding brews, but this one falls a bit short.
A: Slightly hazy and a bit hazy, bits of lacing.. no head retention.
S: Nice roasted barley aroma with sweet malted wheat. Clove, nutmeg, and a bit smokey. Light Noble hops nose.
T: A bit light for my palate. I would like to chew this a bit more before I swallow. Carawheat, Carafa malts meld very well. Hallertau Mittelfrueh Noble hops. W-68 ale yeast strain. I would like more nuttiness flavors and a bigger malty and wheat flavor profile. After all its a dunkel, mo fo! Drink this one slowly it gets tastier as it warms, but also a bit more bitter all the hop character warms.
M: Pretty light, but not bad.
O: Sam Adams is always my go to when I go to places with slim pickings on the beer menu and you cannot go wrong. They a great company that helped rekindle America's micro-brew Renaissance. Try one on!
