Snagged a single for just a buck at the house of 1,000 beers. Poured into an imperial pint glass.
A - Head is pretty thick 1/2 inch that settles rather quickly to nothing but a faint mocha lace ring. Color is also a very dark brown, clear but kind of boring.
S - Well considering it's almost 5 months old it smells more of a black ale or black lager with some highlighting vanilla tones. Maybe some chocolate but it's faint.
T - Not as bad as I expected but has a weird vegtial character I can't seem to enjoy. Like a skunky lager it does have sweeter chocolate malts and a very solid vanilla finish. Not bad.
M - Sort of slick with a medium body but it drinks kind of watery for 6%
Overall one of the better Leine's offerings I have had. Lately I did go back and try the berry weiss which was disgusting so this if anything is at least more drink able.
