A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Faint aromas of bready malts are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of bready malts along with notes of floral and grassy hops and some bits of grainy malts. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to have a little muted aromas and flavors compared to some of the other beers, but it is easy to drink.

2013 Vintage. Poured from a bottle into mug, the beer is jet black, and pours heavy, with no head and only the slightest dark brown ring of film around the surface. It literally poured like motor oil, and it looks delicious. Aromas of wood and earth, with a backbone of rich chocolate and touches of smoke, highlighted by booze. Flavors are robust, with a smoky, woody forward flavor followed quickly by dark, bitter baker's chocolate and rich, full, roasted coffee. Wow, this one is layered, and it is unbelievably smooth. Smoke and roast fills the senses, as well as the palate, throughout each drink. Creamy vanilla highlights, with a warming sensation from the heightened ABV. This is tremendous. Smooth, full, and creamy in mouth, with an almost velvet feel. Roast and coffee on the aftertaste, with hints of booze. Dry, roasted finish, with a smoked and woody linger. This is a fantastic brew, and I can only imagine it would age very, very well.

Bright golden color with a thick two finger head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Pleasant sweet aroma of malt, floral hops, vanilla and herbs.
Flavor is more intense than expected. Strong malt base followed by a bitter hop taste.
Dry and bitter aftertaste, and some sort of detergent like note that did not come right.
Light to medium body with low carbonation.
Not spicy and refreshing as Helles usually are. It would not be my beer of choice.
