3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brownish black color with virtually no head atop it. Leaves some lace on the way down. Smells of coffee and chocolate with a pilsner malt backbone. The aroma seems a bit heavy on the coffee for the style. The flavor follows the aroma fairly well, with a flavor that seems more porter like than lager like. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet sugary mouthfeel. Not a bad brew, but I’ve had better Schwatz before.

Tap. Light tan head, on a brownish amber murky hue. Light prunes, toast, nuttiness, and a slight sweetness in the aroma. Flavor follows suit, and fruity raisins dominate but not in a bad way. Lighter body with subtle carbonation.
