What the brewers say

“Lager yeast makes this big dark beer extremely smooth and chocolaty. It lacks the roast bitterness of a stout but has layers of chocolate, coffee, caramel, perhaps toffee, and a wine-like finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Chocolate with a grassy hops character. A bit understated overall, but clean and appealing. Alcohol evident.”

Flavor: “Rich and complex malt—coffee, toffee, figs, dried fruit. Finish has hints of grassy hops, a slight dark-malt tartness, with lingering toffee, chocolate, and a bit of alcoholic heat. Balance is slightly sweet, but not cloying, which accentuates the soft, creamy finish. Some nice chocolate notes in aftertaste.”

Overall: “A fantastic beer—rich and complex, without harsh edges, and a lingering creamy finish that accentuates the dark-malt character throughout.”
