Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a thin tan head. There is nothing subtle about the chocolate and coffee flavors in this lager, although it isn’t too overwhelming either. Besides those two flavors there isn’t much else going on here though. Despite its dark color this beer is actually kind of thin and watery. Chocolate and coffee are two flavors that I definitely appreciate in a beer, but the rest of this beer doesn’t seem to be fully developed. Maybe I’m being a bit harsh with this beer because with the dark color I was expecting something else. It does have the body of a light lager, but that just isn’t what I’m looking for when a beer is this dark and has chocolate and coffee as the main flavors. It doesn’t taste bad, but it is definitely a little bit disappointing that this is all they could do with two flavors that I really love in beer.

12 oz bottle served fairly cold.

A lightly sweet Dunkle Bock that leans strongly towards a Schwarzbier but with exceptional notes of chocolate and coffee. There are also some nice roasted nut notes in the aroma. While the flavor leans towards a 7, the aroma is s solid 8.

O recommended.

Pours dark chestnut brown with a medium tan creamy head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, notes of plum, roasty malt, mild cacao and espresso like bitterness. Taste the same as aroma. Palate is a medium body, rich and creamy with good carbonation and slightly sticky mouth feel. The finish is sweet sticky caramel malt, dark fruit, a nice chocolate and roasted espresso bitterness in the end for balance. A very rich and full flavored brew. Overall a good flavorful and tasty brew for the holidays
