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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz beer. Walnut color, clear-ish, with light lacing, and a small off-white head. Pretty nice aroma, chocolate malts dominate. Taste is as advertised, not overpowering, pretty good schwartz! Traditional, with a kick. Nice medium mouthfeel/palate, with a light lingering bitterness. Recommended!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated based on notes taken 23 May 2012 -- A well made schwartzbier. A tad bit on the light side. Needs just a little bit more stuff to it. But it’ll drink just fine.

Can at home. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, toast, faint biscuit. Nice. Taste is cocoa, coffee, toast, roasted malts, biscuit. Clean finish, crisp, a faint bitterness. Medium body, high carbonation. Thin mouthfeel. I enjoyed this, a lighter stout like beer with crisp finish. Could have one on a hot day and not be overwhelmed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black with a tan frothy head. Not a strong Aroma, but it’s a nice malty sweetness. Taste is sweet. Very little roasted or hoppy flavors. What is roasted is a light finish. Light carb and mouthfeel. Very easy to drink. Good example of an interesting beer that doesn’t try to be awe inspiring unique

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice deep cola coloured body with a brown glow, hints of auburn and violet and a thick, rich, five centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of milk, nuts, earth, copper, roasted malt and a hint of light coffee. Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt flavour with a lot of earth, some smooth chocolate and coffee flavours and the hints of pecans and walnuts throughout. Aftertaste is well-balanced and showing some good malt notes coupled with a pleasant caramel and toffee sweetness. Overall,a good schwartz with a big nutty and caramel flavour and a subdued yet strong sweet finish that couples well with the rich malts. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whip-In in Austin, Texas on 05-May-2014 for US$2,69 sampled at home in Washington on 06-November-2014.
