My first impression was a sharp similarity to Spaten Optimator... this lasted about .2 seconds until the richness and sweet complexity fully sank in. Quite a superior brew indeed - it is unquestionable after the creamy mouthfeel and nice aftertaste fade away.

Looks-wise it get's an 'A' in my book; nice and dark with a decent, tan/white head that slinks to the sides of the glass after a moment. Very dark, just a slight hint of dark mahogany apparent when holding up to a strong light source.

The taste reflects the look of it, what one would be hoping for in their heart-of-hearts after the languid pour... chewy and huge mouthfeel with a barley-malt and roasted taste. A little caramelly for a moment before the malts and light hoppy bitterness wash it away.

Delicious to the last drop. One of those session-but-shouldn't-be beers. Two thumbs up.
