Black in color with little penetration to light. A thin fingernail of khaki colored head covers the majority of the top of the beer. Aroma of dark,but sweet smelling malt is present. The taste is very malt forward but intensely sweet. Licorice and dark wheat flavors are dominant. The mouth is slightly sticky and chewy. This is a dark malt lagered bomb.

Nice creamy lager with a roasted feel. Decent lacing. Strong carbonation. A lager with character.
