9/22/2010: I just recently tried my first Sprecher beer via a recommendation from a reader, and I am really glad I did. Sprecher Black Bavarian might be my favorite schwarzbier to date, so I figured why not give one of their other beers a try as well? I also picked up their Russian Imperial Stout for the cellar.
The nose again, is very typical for an oktoberfest. I’m not sure if I just don’t have the best smelling power out there, but all these oktoberfest’s smell so similar to me. The flavor is extremely well balanced between sweet malt, and what seems to be noble hoppiness. The mouthfeel is very creamy for the style, a bit thicker than average. This was without question in the top 5 oktoberfest beers I have tried. I will be drinking this again next fall.
Picture of the day: Anyone else see it?
