First time ive had this style. 10 oz draft pour. Pours black with tawny colored head that leaves a nice lace. Smell is almost entirely made up of roasted malts. Taste is smooth and also dominated by sweet German malt character with some acidity and some vanilla and dark fruit. Very unique style worth a try.

Extremely interesting. Not a style I've had before and one that I have a hard time describing. Mildly sour but with a lot of clearly German character to it. Tasty in small doses but not something I'd want to drink of a pitcher of or anything.

Pours an extremely dark cranberry with a loverly firm off white head. Nice to look at.

Nose is a bit confusing. Hints cocoa and purple fruit but not real assertive. Pleasant for what you get.

Taste is not terribly appealing. Has a flavor profile of smokey old purple grapes with undertones of chocolate. Interesting and worth trying but not sure I could really drink a glass.

Finish is actually more cocoa/chocolate than anything else. Should be noted that stays pretty interesting and gets better as it warms.

Toasty, malty, sweet with rich dark fruit notes. Mild wood character. Hint of lactic tartness. Full bodied. Low carbonation and sticky feel. Well balanced.

Decent sour, great fruity smell, kind of thick for a sour and a bit jammy, a bit bitter instead of sour at finish.
