Lips of Faith - Gratzer by New Belgium Brewing Inc.
4.50 % ABV

It's not dead, but Gratzer is definitely a long-buried style from Poland. And together with 3Floyds we have unearthed the best of beer zombies. Full of bold flavors from oak-smoked wheat, and along with Midnight Wheat, this beer presents a pure black pour. A subtle, spicy note from the Polish Lublin hops hides in the aroma, just below the dark and smoky surface. Despite all appearances, the Gratzer is very drinkable at 4.5% ABV, and walks itself with a nice, light body. Cheers to drinking smoky, undead beers. Prost!

(Served in a short bowtie glass)

A-4.5 This beer pours a jet black opaque body with a cocoa colored head that breaks into thick lumps after a bit but continues to give good lacing with each sip. Too dense to see any bubbles.

S- 4 The rich mellow midnight wheat aroma has some more dark roasted malt notes that linger in the finish.

T- 4 smooth mellow midnight wheat flavor has a slight smoke hint to it with a gentle black roasted note in the finish with no bitterness. There is a hint of dark cola and smoke in the finish with a gentle green tartness.

M- 4 this beer has a medium mouthfeel with a slight slippery texture and no alcohol heat.

O- 4.5 This beer has a nice mellow dark roast character but more mellow and lighter than a typical stout and some nice tartness and smoke note that offer nice support from the background. Good depth but light and sessionable.
