Serving style : 12 oz bottle from $1.49 singles cooler poured for appearance.

Appearance (3.75) : Nice, toasted almond sudsy two fingered head that sticks around for a minute or so and finally settles at about half a finger. Leaves small bubbly webs on the glass. Body is dark chocolate/deep maroon colored and appropriate for the style.

Smell (3.75) : Nutty - perhaps roasted nut; bitter hop, toasted malts, spice. Further in is fresh shucked corn, a bit of coffee bean, and amaretto.

Taste (3.75) : A full american lager flavor with coffee notes and some small hop bitterness. A bit of that nuttiness surfaces towards the finish. Maybe a hint of blueberry. Finishes great. This really is an easy drinking, great tasting dark lager.

Sub note...The bottle reveals straight dark coffee notes. If you're a fan of coffee-tasting beers, drink this one from the bottle - you'll get more of it here.

Mouthfeel (4) : Entirely drinkable, easily a session beer. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, creamy, thick, full, and ends semi-dry. An impressive attempt at a dark lager. Super drinkable for how dark it tastes and how easily one could say it's like a porter or stout.

Overall (3.92) : This beer is probably my favorite Leinenkugels' yet. It's sessionable, tastes great, has a nutty coffee flavor, and still retains that dark euro smoothness. I'd buy a six pack to stock in my fridge in a heartbeat. Good stuff.
