Black Bavarian

Thanks go out to Kevin (again). 16 oz bottle in the usual Sprecher presentation.
The beer pours a solid black pour with a nice, creamy head and some superb red highlights. The lacing is not great. Still looks good though.
The nose changes with temperature (as expected) and there is a really large increase in the malt profile with temperature. The light licorice really builds a LOT with temperature.
The tastes give a lovely, sweet, light licorice touch that really develops IN the mouth. The light licorice bitterness is really the main feature of this beer. Sprecher develops some nice German brews and this is no exception. A decent rendition of the style and a beer that hits all the spots that one would expect.
Solid and tidy, the beer does pretty much what it advertises.
