Comment:  Hard to believe that it’s been five years since I visited Munich and I’m still trying to recapture beer nirvana here at home.  This dark beer has a nice chestnut color and a thick head like sea foam.  The aroma gives off a sweet, caramel scent.  The taste is more bitter though with a roasted flavor and a strong aftertaste.  After a few sips the head is still fairly thick and leaves behind some Brussels Lace.  Not bad!
