3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours a dark brown almost black color with a 2 finger off-white head that retains well and leaves some thin spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate with some earthy hops. Taste is roasted malt bitterness with some chocolate sweetness and earthy hop bitterness with a slightly sour finish. Light to medium body and average carbonation. A decent schwarzbier which is quite easy to drink.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This Ale is considered a Schwarzbier (which is typically a lager). It seems like they took a formula for stout or porter and decreased the original gravity. This is a light tasting beer, for how high the SRM is. Quickly dissipating head, as well as the flavor. The flavor is slightly sour. There is a light burnt flavor, watery finish with tinge of bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, moderate sudsy off white head, spotty lacing.   Roasted malt nose, pale apple skin, a little lactose.   Similar on the tongue, a bit spritzy.   Straight forward, but average in my book.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Fairly solid, but very average.

Pours brown/black with a nice head and a good amount of lacing. Sort of a chocolate ice cream aroma. Smooth and also very dry. No big coffee or chocolate taste. Just a solid roasted ale.
