A fine brew from Moerlein in a growler via Jungle Jim's Eastgate. This fine ale pours
a deep dark brown with a nice head of off white foam that subsides to a thick ring,
thin subtle pool, and subtle lacing. Nose of chocolate malts, breaded malts like
a doppelbock, and subtle booze. Flavors exceed the nose with mild chocolate and
dark brown sugar glazed bread with a nice warming alcohol effect with a touch of
herbal hop bitterness to cut through the sweetness. Excellent mouth feel; smooth,
rich, lightly coating, medium on the feel, and warming with a sweet finish. Overall
one of the better of the style which is usually laden with too much spice. This one
is near perfect and likened unto a doppelbock in character.

Nice!

Cheers

Deep amber color with a creamy off white, one-finger head. Aroma is of Chocolate sweetness and a slight spice. Taste is complex but not overbearing. It hides the ABV quite well and is a pleasure to drink.

Picked up a bottle of this from last years batch, it held up very well. Carbonation was perfect. I was surprised at how dark the beer presented when poured into a wide globe glass. The nose on this beer gives is caramel sweetness upfront with a slight spice note on the finish. Also picked up a chocolate note as it warmed. The taste blew me away. Toasted malt forward with caramel sweetness upfront, rounding through chocolate notes and finishing with a dry spice leaving me thirsty for more. Great beer from a great brewery, give this one a try.
