3.94/5  rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very dark amber with crimson highlights when held to the light.
Light tan, moderately sized head leaves some lacing on the glass.

The nose is quite minimal.

The taste is not complex, but very cohesive and well balanced. The mild hops (34 IBU) and toasted cereal malts do not compete for attention.
Definitely richer than any real German Alt, but kind of like an uber-alt thats bigger in all dimensions but retains the relative balance among the flavor components.

The mouthfeel may be its best attribute, wonderfully soft and full.

A very drinkable brew that belies its 7.8% abv (603 characters)

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer has a dark brown body with a thin head of tan foam that fades to a ring after a bit. There is a strong carbonation of tiny bubbles that glide to the surface.

S- The soft notes of dry dark roasted malt has hints of light toasted malt in the background. The aroma is nice but pretty soft.

T- The smooth dark toasted malt flavor has hints of chocolate malt and a note of prunes in the background. The finish is a very light dry spice note that might be from hops followed by a soft bitterness from hops. There is a light biscuit malt note and a soft nougat note that comes through when it warms and each add a nice bit of depth.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with no alcohol heat in the finish.

D- This beer has a smooth but light flavor. Even though it has a nice malt quality there isn't much depth. (871 characters)
