An impressive brew. not sure if I got the right style. It's a strong dark german ale. Not too heavy or thick, with a strong nutty taste The alcohol content, though high, was well masked and I was actually quite surprised when I noticed it on the can. The drinkability I had to downgrade because of the morning after, to rub that in I had 24 hour train ride. I quite liked the taste however, and if the circumstances of my first experience were better, I would be sure to make this a regular of mine.
