Schweinsbrau Dunkel

Hermannsdorfer Schweinsbrau bottled beers are brewed and bottled at Riedenberger Brauhaus of RiedenburgGermanyThis is a 5.0% ABV dunkel or "dark" beer. I found these beers at John's Grocery in Iowa City, Iowa, and who can resist a schwein wearing pearls?

The beer pours a medium dark chestnut brown. There is nearly an inch of off-white to very light tan foam, but it dissipates very rapidly. The aroma is malty, roasted, yet sweet; burnt caramel nearing molasses. The tastes is malty, following the aromas, adding in sweet potato, with just enough hops to curtail the sweetness on the finish as just slide into dry. It has a fairly light mouthfeel and low carbonation. There are much better dunkels out there for my taste.
