A - A dark beer with some faint red highlights and a thin brown bubbly head that retains.
S - Smells like chocolate with some minor hop smell underneath.
T - Follows the smell - but the first sip is a shocker. The flavor explodes like a bomb with big chocolate malt flavor up front that fades away to mild hop bitterness. The deep malt flavor playing off of the hops really gives this beer a great character. Brewed under the German purity laws? Impressive!
M - Love the way the carbonation makes the flavor pop. Though the beer is slightly watery, the way the flavors stick in the mouth long after sipping compensate. As the beer warms, the mouthfeel thickens and the flavors become more pronounced.
D - Easy to get if you live in the right area (which I unfortunately don't), and with the low ABV make, this an easy and delicious drink. The bitter hop finish dries off the tongue and makes you want to take another sip.
