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 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.

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!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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)
