In the nose you will find aromas of chocolate and smoke. The flavor is slightly bready with dark malt flavor that blends well with the overall balanced hoppiness. A healthy portion of dark wheat malt provides lacey foam and adds roasted flavor to make this Bavarian Altbier with Sonoma style.
Altbier is a German style brown ale. 'Alt' means "old" in German and they're traditionally aged longer which gives it a smooth and delicate taste. The color ranges from amber to dark brown, medium in carbonation with a great balance between malt and hops.
