Fair shwartz. Big white head on black body. Aggressive carbonation. Significant acid. Drinkable beer, it grew on me.It was only an extra, thanks Steve in Austin for some fun. Some burning tummy. Good roast aroma. Rough patches.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Draft poured. Dark almost black with practically no head. Hard to tell the aroma in this glass. Flavors are light roast, chocolate, malt, easy hops on the finish. Goes down smooth and tasty but not remarkable

draft. light chalkiness in the nose along with the obligatory black patent char with lighter milk chocolate notes. medium body, lightly pasty, creamy carbonation and creamy body suggesting oats (which I see now is chocolate wheat, ok). pleasant soft minerallic yeast character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
What I can see through the mouth of the can is a dark-brown color. The aroma is of delicious, roasted malts, dark caramel malts, and what you normally get in the nose from well-made lagers. In the mouth, itís almost English in style, dominated by roasted, toasted malts that impart a slight woody, chocolate flavor that manages to steer the beer away from applying its inner lager to the palate. It finishes relatively clean with hints of roast, and a cold, tongue-puckeringly condensed, slightly oily bitterness in a manner that reminds me of wood stain. Not bad... and a great Schwartzbier.
