3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Alamo Drafthouse - S. Lamar, Austin, Oct. 20. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small lasting creamy tan head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoke, toasted malt, caramel and notes of coffee & chocolate. Malty flavour is lightly toasted along with some light smoky notes and nuts. Medium bodied. A nice, easy to drink Schwarz.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at the Saucer. Pretty dark pour. Roast, cocoa, and a bit of dark fruitiness. Light-medium bodied. Pretty decent, and quite good for a schwarzbier, but that’s not saying all that much.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma is roasted malts, dark fruit, and hints of chocolate. A dark brown/black pour with a mostly diminishing tan head and minimal lacing. Taste is roasted malts and some bitterness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall an enjoyable Schwartzbier. Would drink again.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark maple-like brown. No head. Maple syrup and lemon juice on the nose. Very general roasted malt kinda simple. Nice mouthfeel with a little roasty toasty finish. A little too mellow. Good for its style. But not rating that high overall. From can.

12 oz. can from a buddy in Texas- thanks again, Bryan! Pours a deep cola brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, brown sugar, earth, nuts, and bread. The flavor is like a slightly watered down version of the same. Light-medium bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a watery mouthfeel that should be more toasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can:   Dark brown, almost black, thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Soft roasted malt nose, slightly bready in a whole wheat way.   On the tongue its pretty pale in its roastiness, hardly could say its even toasty.   Now that I see it uses the Urquell Lager yeast, it tastes like Pilsner Urquell a bit.   As it warms I get a little bit of bakers like chocolate on the nose.   Seems very clean, backside has a very faint pasture/earthy like tinge.   Comes across as a very average Schwarzbier.   Thanks for the can Bill!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a very dark brown with red highlights and a cream/cinnamon-colored head. Nose has smoky, cocoa, and red wine elements. Very smoky and bitter on the front of the tongue, then follows with a baking-chocolate element. Finish is a little tight with a slight herbal element. Good.
