On tap at Old Heidelburg in Ft. Lauderdale. Served in a branded .5l tall glass.

A – Pitch black in color with a deep tan head. Good retention and solid lacing down the glass.

S – Nice light roasty aroma. Caramel malts. Coffee, molasses.

T – Caramel malt sweetness and a light roast taste. Coffee. Has a nice bready flavor perhaps rye. Brown sugar and light chocolate. Small trace bitterness at the end.

M – Very creamy and smooth. Medium body and carbonation.

O – Really dug this beer. Its very tasty and is a very easy drinker. Could have had a few of these. Might be my favorite in the style. Looking forward to more.
