This is a hard beer to figure out:
Dark caramel appearance, very near chocolate. Good lacing throughout.
Notes of chocolate and caramel come through in the nose.
Very complex flavor. Starts off a little bitter with the stout flavors up front. These quickly give way to the lager, giving it the impression of very deep flavor. Chocolate and malt is very evident. This is really great because you get the benefit of stout-like flavors but with the carbonation of a lager.
Mouthfeel is very full and the carbonation just right.
I didn't have high hopes for this but I stand corrected. Complex and full flavors throughout that cause continued contemplation as one enjoys!
