4.48/5 rDev +14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
It pours a dark chestnut brown. It's very opaque with an inviting, rich look. The head is initially a finger thick and look nice on top of the much darker beer, but there's little retention and before long it's gone. After a quick swirl, slight lacing presents.
The smell is very welcoming. Very malty, caramelly, with some spices and a hint of smoke.
For the style, the taste is right up there. The caramel malts take top billing, but the spice, smoke and high alcohol are very worthy supporting members and make for a nice flavor profile.
A full-bodied beer with burst of sweet and complimentary hits of various spices and some char from the cedar. No real hop presence and little to no bitterness. The spice and smokey feel balance the malty sweetness and everything is cleaned up at the end with the heat from the alcohol.
I don't care much for lagers or German malt bombs, but this was a damned good beer. It's got a lagery taste and feel but everything is spot on with sharp edges like an ale. Good stuff, great flavor and the perfect amount of alcohol. Makes for a good night sipper.

Thanks to dresden for this bottle.
Batch 2010-1 05/2011.
A - Very dark amber colour with a deep brown centre; only very slightly translucent. Two fingers of light, bubbly tan coloured head.
S - Dark caramel, brown sugar, yeast esters and a hint of cocoa.
T - Bready malts, dark caramel, brown sugar and some toffee notes combined to for a fairly sweet malt-forward base. A light cedar presence shows up in the finish but is otherwise secondary. Slightly warming ABV helps cut through the sweetness. A great flavour profile but I would have likes a little more of the cedar coming through.
M - Medium body. Creamy. Light to moderate carbonation.
