Pours a dense, soapy, tan head that has nice persistence and laces well. Acidic, roasted malt aroma. Black. Starts with a nice acidity and a deep, roasted malt flavor. Coffee. A medium bitterness that is slightly floral. Finish is roasted malt, acidity, and floral hoppiness.

This is really, really nice. It has a great mouthfeel and is very toasty and delicious.

Serving type: bottle

3.21/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Pours very dark brown with a thin, disappearing head. Spotted lacing.

The smell is of restrained roast, dark malt, some anise.

The taste is of sweet-ish roasted dark malt. A fruitiness that is between grape and raisin is present. Licorice and slightly earthy hop touch in the finish. Some alcohol shows.

Solvent alcohol makes it slick. Slightly astringent for a lager.

Not the smoothest lager. Not sure that making this an imperial without more malt backbone did this any good. Also, it had some ale character that didn't go well with it. It's not a complete disaster, but a brewery that specializes in lagers could have done better.

Serving type: on-tap
