  • Pours clear as I can tell. Frothy, tightly packed foam is about 1.5 inches high and tan. Frothier as it recedes, the lacing seems to seek its level.

    Aroma is a little subdued as I would expect a bold, rich malt to shine through based on the grain bill. Instead I mostly get sweet caramel and toast. Darker, richer aromas are hit and miss and way in the back.

    Taste is sweet and soft up front followed by a rush of dark, roasted, coffee, and chocolate flavors that stick around. There is a bit of burnt caramel and toast long into the aftertaste.

    Thin for the style as I don't think I could call this medium body. If I wanted to fake it, I could agree with the site and say it is a touch cream, at times.

    I like big, bold German lagers and I was hoping I was in for a treat. This one missed a bit as it seems light on the aroma, bolder in the taste but not balanced or to character. It seems to have a lot of root in a porter. Enjoy!
