Dinkel Acker Dark

Dinkelacker Brauerei AG

Germany

This is definitely a man's beer. It comes in a green bottle, but it has the Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout affect...bottle looks completely black until you turn it on the side and see the glass color through the air bubble. Anyway, my wife likened it to motor oil, which is always a plus for dark beers. This went down smooth...this would be the beer drinker's Southern Comfort, I think. One drawback...because I live in Atlanta, September isn't the ideal time for sampling this beer (too warm). Somewhere between Halloween and Thanksgiving would be more ideal.
