Good balance, not overly complex, but tasty. A very good schwarzbier.

Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2012
On draught at Freshcraft during the Cigar City Reception. Black pour with some brown around the edges and a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Aroma of toasted malt, pine and hops. Light-bodied with a sweet roasted malt and resiny hops flavor. Notes of coffee and chocolate as well. The finish is roasty with an herbal hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Tap at CCB. Deep brown to ruby with no head. Nose is sharper coffee roast and dark cherries. Taste follows suit: heavy baked cherries followed by heavy coffee and roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel with good bitterness. Easy to drink. Heavy coffee presence. Successful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
