32 oz. swing top growler via trade with
smith4498 - Pours a dark brown color with a one finger thick tan head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is roasted, almost burnt malt. Flavor is lightly sweetened roasted malt and light chocolate with some herbal hops trying to bust out. Finish is smooth and roasty. Medium body. Schwarzbier beers are probably my favorite style of Lagers and this is a good one. Thanks Jason.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the growler. Reddish black pour with a thin light tan head. Huge roasted grain aroma with smoky notes and a hint of chocolate. Nice malt body, not too heavy with lots of roasted grain, chocolate and a roasted bitterness on the finish. Very well done.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark black coffee with an amber hue and decent creamy caramel head. The aroma brings pleasant roasted malts, fresh coffee, and black licorice. It tastes very similar, starts with light sweet roasted malty coffee notes that taste so fresh and delicious. The body is just right, not crispy or creamy, but so smooth.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roasty, with notes of coffee and chocolate. Nice tasting beer. Light and simple. Easy drinking. A touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Well balanced. This is a nice brew that I wouldn’t mind drinking again.
Serving type: on-tap

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Tampa airport. Body is dark brown with a tan head and aromas of... well... Kalamata olives and chocolate. Messed up, huh? I let it warm, still olives. It doesn’t show up in the flavor however as this is a silky chocolate beer from start to finish. This is an excellent schwarz.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
draft @ redlight redlight. Roasted malts on the nose with notes of chocolate and charcoal. Pours very dark brown/black with a thick off white head. Pretty thick mouthfeel, rich and chocolatey with hints of smoke and bitter bakers chocolate. Pretty good. Flavor is great just pretty thick for a schwarzbier, reminds more of a baltic porter.
