Not a bad beer. Seems like it's not as aggressive as it looks. I'd have another

A little above your average brew, but as previously stated: not a true dunkel. There isn't much to say in terms of the normal rating system.

A: Pours a dark chocolatey color, with little to no head.
S: Smells like coffee/toffee.
T: Tastes like coffee/toffee.
M: Feels a little like a light stout, a little heavier than a Guinness.
O: It's alright. Franconia started in a town about 15 miles from where I grew up, and now they brew full-time about 20 miles from my current home. Considering that it's available at just about any establishment with a decent selection near me, it's well above the average fare, but not quite good enough that I'd seek it out in particular.
