L - dark burnt caramel brown.

S - roasty coffee beans and brown wheat. Dark chocolate.

T - smoky caramel and traditional dunkel flavors but with an American twist. Clean and direct in flavor.

F - light in body with a silky feel. Chewy.

O - solid "dark beer". Got a bit of meat to it.

Nice solid sturdy brown appearance, good beige head about 3/4" high. Or deep. Aroma hit the English toffee and lesser caramel unsweetened notes. I love this historical marker on Milwaukee's East side as well. Good artwork and inspiration for this one. Good times to be had.

Smooth ride, not overly hopped, mild, some almost coffee notes from some of the roasting. Almost like a dark cream ale. Enjoyable stuff.

Look: clear, deep mahogany, big creamy tan head
Smell: caramel, roasted malt, hint of spicy hops
Taste: Sweet toasted bread, hops, chocolate, and some off-putting funkiness
Feel: medium bodied, moderate carbonation

Lots of good flavors there, but something about the taste just didn't seem right. I'd like to try it again and see if I have the same experience.
