roasted grains dominate, though it finished a bit thin with a hoppiness that sort of throws it off. not bad but not that interesting either.

Dark black, almost opaque pour. Lots of grains and maltiness with a roasted presence in the aroma. Taste was much crisper bringing in a slight hop bite to match biscuit, coffee, and chocolate flavors. Light and drinkable for being so rich. Very good.

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.

Draft. Black with good, creamy, tan head / Nose of toasted barley and tobacco / Medium, creamy body with modest acidity and long, dry, bitter finish / Very smooth flavors of dark roast coffee and tobacco, with a hint of dark caramel / Near perfect for this style.

Fat Lost Kangaroo. Svart öl med rubinröda tendenser i ljuset. Doft av rostad malt och kaffe. Ovanligt mycket kaffe i smaken för att vara en Schwarzbier. Smaken påminner mer om en stout om än inte lika fyllig och torr. God.

Deep black color, eggshell head. Aroma is roasted malt. Flavor is a very dry bitter roasted malt and coffee. This is pretty rough, not an easy drinking lager.

Really nice rich chocolatey lager. Nothing particularly smokey from this, but light sweetness and very pleasant.
