Pours brown with an off white head. Aroma offers some roasted barley than gives off some hints of some cocoa, a touch of smokiness, and a little bit bready. Flavor followed suit. A crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, another solid brew from TRVE here. Would drink again.

16oz pint at the taproom in downtown Denver. No such thing as Gratzbier on BA, so this is the closest thing.

This beer appears a very dark ruddy brown hue, with pervasive cola highlights, and one fat finger of puffy, thinly foamy beige head, which leaves some tight EKG pattern lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of musty, clammy roasted bready and caramel malt, a touch of wheat and rye astringency, a bit of earthy orchard fruitiness, a mild oily nuttiness, and leafy, weedy hops - schwarzbier-esque, but much more. The taste is more grainy (barley, wheat, and rye, natch) malt, a touch of dry cocoa, some day old coffee, a bit of loitering yeast, some fading earthy nuts, and weedy, musty, and leafy hops.

The bubbles are generally laid-back, the body medium-light in weight, and mostly smooth, a certain ashiness taking root. It finishes off-dry, a bit biscuity, clammy, and noble in its subdued hoppiness.

An interesting resurrection of an old Teutonic style, sort of a hybrid of a schwarzbier and a dark wheat beer. Weird to find it at at metal bar/brewery in DT Denver, but stranger things, and all that.
