4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft... This beer rocks!… Clear, dark, deep ruby ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, khaki head. Good retention. The aroma is chocolaty and nutty with a nice splash of mocha java. Medium-bodied and creamy with dancing carbonation. The flavor is excellently bittered - piney, citrusy hops are really front-and-center here - even at room temperature. Finishes crisp and bitter. Rock solid schwarzbier!
