This was delicious! I really regret now that I only bought one six-pack. Pours a deep mahogany brown, very nearly black as a porter. Smells delicious, and tastes even better, silky smooth and malty. This struck me as being more of a dopplebock in character. Apparently Anchor has only recently started releasing this widely. If you can still find a sixer this year, pick it up; or else, keep a sharp eye out for it next spring.
