My New Favorite Nectar of the Gods... Warsteiner Dunkel

My new favorite beer is Warsteiner Dunkel. I was able to try some at this German Beer Garden here in town and it was absolutely wonderful! It has a spicy kind of taste but in a sweet way like gingerbread. Anyways, this is my new nectar of the gods so try some!
