This is one of those gold standards in beer style. It is everything the German “Black Beer” style is supposed to be. It pours with an ample tan head that is sticky and persists. The aroma is earthy with a touch of dark (charred) malt. Faint malt sweetness with a light hop hit at the end. The body is light and the finish is clean as a lager should be.
