3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on-tap @ Blue Stallion / Lexington KY --- Clear dark brown, thin rim head, no lace. Taste is toasted malt that turns pleasantly bitter in the palate while adding maple (wood) flavor. There is a pleasant fizziness on the roof of the mouth at the finish. It retains part of the bitter all the way through, keeping things relatively simple, but also satisfying.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Moderate roasted malts with a very light noble hop presence. Appearance: Nearly pitch black with a thin, bone coloured head. Flavor: Pretty much matches the nose, but with a little additional chocolate. Just not much hop character pushing this black pils through. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Just felt like an average Schwarz; could use a little more character all around.
