Background: Here’s a beer that one of my best friends has been telling me about for a long, long time. I figured there’s no time like the present to have a good beer and see what this is all about. I believe this is the first Lenie’s beer I’ve ever had on here. Also, I think this is the first dunkel beer too. Let’s check this out.


Taste & Aroma: This beer smells malty. I’m getting some faint dark fruits too in the aroma. I don’t have much dunkel experience so all-in-all, I don’t know what to expect. So far so good though. Let’s rappel down into this cave and see what there is to see. The flavor here is interesting! Roasted malt, and some kind of berry is in there as well. Blackberry or raspberry, but it is slight. When the bottle said it was brewed with all natural fruit juices, I’ll admit I wasn’t too excited. I don’t like fruit in my beer. The finish is a lingering malty one that is first and foremost warming. This is a good winter beer for a cold night.


Final Analysis: This is a good winter beer. I can tell you that while this is not a new favorite, it is definitely a beer worth remembering the next time I am at a Lenie friendly establishment.
