Gripping German stickebier (defined as a heavily malted ‘secret brew’) brings toasted white breading and caramelized mineral grain compression to raw-honeyed orange souring. Metallic whim dessicates ancillary dark cherry, raisin, fig, plum and plantain illusions. Sugar-wafered citric-floral spicing softens slack toasted nuttiness. Mild hop bitterness overrun by acidic alkaloid astringency that sometimes encumbers protracted flavor profile. And despite its unassuming nature, 7.2% alcohol flow makes for woozy boozing.
