Beautiful head and lacing, light texture on the tongue, a bright after taste, a dark slightly red coloration, a lingering sweetness, effervescent, a hint of coffee bitterness. delightful and easy to drink all night.

A moderate pour produces a 1.5 inch head that looks pretty creamy and proves fairly sticky. The beer is a moderately dark ruby yellowish brown with moderate carbonation.

Roasty and grainy in the aroma and flavor. Maybe a little earthy funk. Definite coffee notes and pungent grain and malt in the flavor. Dry on the finish, with lingering, but quite subtle funk and pungent fruit in the aftertaste. Really, quite a clean, lager finish but with some interesting aroma-flavors. Creamy, almost spritzy mouthfeel.

This is probably Leinie's best brew.
