look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. The “BOTTLED ON” date printed on the label is “012913.” This bottle is getting a little old.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is clear, medium mahogany. Two fingers of buttery, light tan head dissipated slowly, leaving a spotted and uneven lacing and trails along the side of the glass.

Smell: Rich, dark maltiness. Caramel, toffee, toasted malts, chocolate, cherry, plum, and some nutmeg.

Taste: It is definitely more dunkel than lager. Caramel, toffee, toasted malts, a lot more chocolate than the smell, some smoked malts, cherry, plum, perhaps a little raspberry, and a nice beery bite.

Drinkability: This is solid stuff. It likely sets the bar for the boldest versions of the style, at least as far as I have experienced.
