4/5 rDev +4.4%
Poured cool from 500ml bottle into pilsner mug.
A) Attractive dark ruby-brown with disappointing thin head.
S) Fruity malts are there straight away. Even if I didn't know the style I know hops aren't going to dominate this one.
T) Yes. Clean, fruity, very slight roasty aftertaste. Like every quality German bier, you just want to lift the sweet sweet water to your mouth again.
M) Muted carbonation, a palate cleanser.
O) Something here for everyone. Chuggability for lager fans, good quality malt chewability for ale fans. Recommended.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Beautiful clear mahogany pour with a two finger off-white head with decent retention and nice lacing. Very earthy, malty nose with hints of brown bread, caramel, brown sugar, tea, and subtle cocoa. The taste follows suit lots of earthiness and brown bread along with hints of toffee, tea, caramel, tobacco, subtle cocoa, and leather. The mouthfeel is thinner than expected with really low carbonation and a lot of mineral character on the finish. Overall, I was slightly disappointed with this. The mineral taste was really off-putting and it was sweeter than I had expected. Probably won't revisit...

Appearance: I see people are calling the body of this beer as cola brown, and that is appropriate, as it boasts that dark black with brown highlights appearance. However slow carbonation and two fingers of frothy head which both laced fairly and boasted the same retention.
Smell: It has a smokey undercurrent that is backed by a light dark toffee and chocolate undertone. The smokiness becomes more assertive as it warms, which seem a bit much for a dark lager.
Taste: Well roasted toffee malt with touches of herbs becomes more and more roasted and nearly burnt ending with a smokey end. It's simple but robust and well done.
Mouthfeel: The carbonation could use a little work, but the transitioning is exceptional, however that smokey end seems a bit out of place, and leaves a slight dryness, but thankfully it doesn't linger.
Drinkability: Medium to heavy bodied, which I'd expect more from a porter but it works here. The odd smokey pang somewhat hampers the experience, but I wouldn't say it stoped the beer dead. It went great with the schnitzel I had.
Final Thoughts: A good beer that I would recommend, and certainly went exceptionally well with the schnitzel and spatzle I had at the Black Forest Inn in Hamilton. Thumbs up.
