330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Very dark brown color. Medium size, tan head, stays. Sweet, tiny bit of chocolate, roasted malts, slightly grainy notes in aroma. Mellow roast, chocolate malts, bit mashy sour grains in taste. Long lasting chocolate malts in aftertaste. Mellow, but also feels bit watery. But still solid Schwarzbier.
