It is a very nice looking beer that is very clear dark brown with ruby highlights. There is a long lasting, creamy light tan head.
It has an intensely melaniodin aroma like the thick brown crust of an artisan bread. There is moderate aromas of toast and carmel in there. No noticeable hops aroma and just a hint of plum and chocolate that rounds out the nose.
The flavor is like chewing on a thick, dark crust of a loaf of bread with the melaniodin flavor propionate and toasted flavors following right behind it. There is a moderat hop bitterness and no hops flavor with a slight hint of chocolate and plum. The alcohol give a slight warming. A clean lager profile from the yeast without any diacetyl, phenols and only the slight plum ester.
It's very smooth with a medium-full body with a moderately low carbonation. No astringency.
This is a big, rich lager with some nice dark toasty and bready characteristics.
