Murky cola color. Maybe a bit darker. The head sizzled for a bit, then promptly deflated. Looks nearly flat after a minute and a half.

Dark bavarian malts, cave air, vapory whiff of campfire, and a gritty earthiness. Aroma is dialed down, probably due to the lack of head formation.

Burning carbonation and bitterness combination goes alongside dark malt roastiness and herbal hops. Pretty dry in the finish with bitter greens and kiln. Roasted chestnuts, brown bread, and thin alcohol round it out.

A tad spicy with lurking carbonation, but not enough to give the feel any bite. Body is squared up.

Beautiful beer from the start. Vey light aroma, sweet brown sugar, malt, chocolate.

This beer has the darkest burnt copper color, the best I can describe it. Tan head, the bottom of the glass has a lot of bubbles. It almost seems too much for such a sweet smelling lager.

Ahhh, very good. In the mouth this feels like a really light beer, but it is packed full of flavor. Sweet upfront, but it doesnt linger. Almost a root beer like flavor, but without the carbonation, which is contrary to all the bubbles I see. Chocolate, honey, malt. All this yet it sits lightly, and not weighty like a doppelbock might. It would be easy to tip back a few of these. Easy drinking solid dark lager.

Poured from a bottle that had warmed up to about 55º into a Perfect Pint...I received this about 8 weeks ago, so that could impact the flavor.

A=Rather dark brown...darker than Madtown Nut Brown but not quite as dark as Sprecher Black Bavarian--coffee colored. Eggshell colored head of about one finger that lasted just under a minute.

S=Malt, coffee, and bittersweet chocolate.

T=Moderately sweet, with moderate chocolate and moderate malt flavors. A touch of hops, perhaps, and no bitterness to be found. Reminds me of an Edmund Fitzgerald.

M=Spot on body for a lager--not too light, not too heavy. Light carbonation makes it rather drinkable--would make a great session beer.

O=I was rather impressed, as I envisioned a more bitter beer. I love Lakefront's red, and this is another winner...will definitely buy again. This would pair well with hamburgers, I think, or even do by itself.
