A- Dark, dark, red. Little light shows though the glass. Foamy head. It was a big head and then it died to about a rim around the glass.

S- Big dark fruits. Deep roasted malts. Light smokiness. Molasses and brown bread present. Sweet and some kind of bitterness. Big and bold. Malt lovers dream.

T- lots of roasted/toasted maltiness. Molasses type sweetness. Bready. Earthy type bitterness. No real hop presence.

M- Full bodied. Sticky. Rich. Regardless of the fact that this is full bodied, it is easy to drink.

Overall this beer is real special. So far this is my favorite German beer. Maltiness ,bready goodness. So big and bold in flavor, but not too big in alcohol. This would be awesome with pot roast!

I’d had this beer in St. Louis at Cicero’s over Christmas, and while it was good, experience told me I was drinking from an old, untended keg. When this showed fresh at Anam Cara today, I didn’t hesitate to order, and I was not disappointed.
Deep brown to black color with ruby highlights and a thin tan head. Wonderful roast malt aroma with mild chocolate and caramel hints. A candy lovers dream! The light roast aroma develops into a milder roast flavor with an amazing sweetness and a mild alcohol warming. Nummy! Smooth mouth feel very drinkable despite the alcohol. This is truly the signature beer of this style.

Poured into a tall glass. Huge 5 finger head which dissipates to a nice frothy cap. Very dark brown with an attractive auburn or dark red hue. Almost no light comes through when held up to light. Definitive chocolate and malt flavor with notes of coffee and perhaps a distant plum. Sort of a roasted taste on the back end. Smooth mouth feel with some bitterness and carbonation. Reminds me of some porters I've had. Low alcohol by volume, almost too low but I like beers with a higher than 6% ABV. Overall a very agreeable beer that I would drink again.
