Color is a clear orangish cherrywood color, it could be darker with more brown, pours out to a medium beige head that fades quickly, no real lace sticking. Aroma is quite sweet and fruity with dullish apple and pear, a malty nose, touches of dry nuttyness, but it has a bit of a souring smell and reminds of flat white wine or something. Interestingly off. Taste comes across quite thin and far to sweet, malts are in flavorful amounts but not in a good way by any means, very light and twingy with a watery mix of white wine fruityness and dulled crispness. Feel is watery and thin, characterless and boring. Boy, a disappointing beer at best. I so want to support Schell's other brews other then the FireBrick and Pale, but it just ain't happening.

Are you afraid of the Dark? Maybe you should be. Pours a darker brownish color that is mostly hazy. A quick disappearing head and no lace.

The nose has a slight smell of malt. Some burnt astringent notes with a light toffee backing. Som off yeast notes with a little bit of buytric. Some oxidation notes as well.

The taste is also limited. There is a watery taste and had little to no body. The presence of malt was limited where there should be a strong German influence. A more US feel for both malt and yeast.

The body is really lacking. Overall this is very limited beer with not much to it.
