chocolate, coffee, roasty, almost black, nice head, lightly bitter, light body, moderately thin feel, average carbonation, clean finish. This beer is a beautiful marriage between a crisp lager and a malty, roasty porter. Love it!

Pours dark brown, looks nearly black without direct light but it’s quite brown when lit. The head is medium-sized and tan in color. Good retention. Lots of bubbles sticking around, coating the top of the beer. Cleanly malty aroma. Nutty with caramel depth. Very light coffee roast. It’s a nice, round malt sweetness. Taste is mild and nutty, again. There’s some malt sweetness. Caramel in the finish. Solid grain flavors. Mouthfeel is pretty normal. Relatively light, medium carbonation. Good beer.

Black bodied, unstable head. Little aroma, not much character from the dark roast. Light malty taste, simplistic toast like malts. Short aftertaste, clean and active carbonation. Decent but doesn’t surprise, challenge or satisfy me much. (On tap at Frank’s hotdog restaurant)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: November 27, ’13. Poured from a can into a snifter.
A: A very light aroma of dark roasted caramel, coffee like malts and a touch of earthy hop aroma.
A: Pours a deep brown with a finger of tan head that dissipates slowly.
T: Follows the nose, albeit a more simple taste than the noses suggest with roasted malt dominating (though not being over the top) and some chocolate in the background.
P: A medium body that is very crisp, clean, and dry. Easy to drink.
O: Perhaps the best schwarzbier brewed outside of Germany that I have ever had. WELL DONE.

Smell is light coffee and roast malt. Taste is cold coffee like. Thin to medium body with crisp carbonation and nice coffee flavor. Great for a lighter easy to drink roasty beer.

12 ounce can thanks to Errl. Pours a darker translucent brown with a big head of khaki foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma has notes of coffee, caramel, and roast. Sweeter, ashy malt profile. Light body and a smooth mouthfeel.
