What the brewers say

“Rich and dark, this silky-smooth lager seduces you with sweet malty flavors. But drink carefully, because it packs quite a punch.”

What our panel thought

“Aroma is fairly light with notes of dark fruit and light toasty malt. Deeply mahogany with good clarity and a small but persistent head. Flavor is smooth and rich, with deep maltiness and strong dark fruit and cherry notes. Bitterness is low and balanced, keeping the finish from being overly sweet. Hops are minimal throughout. Very pleasant to drink.”

What our editors thought

“Crisp toasty edge on the nose evokes everything from dried oak leaves to stewed plums—rich with both sweet and more structuring elements that build a broadly intriguing aroma. It’s more indulgent in the flavor, as the sweeter dark-fruit notes initially push forward and claim space, only to be dried out in the finish by the light woody and herbal notes. Ranging yet focused, sweet yet spry, it’s a thoughtful study in contrasts.”
