Black, red glints, tight tan head. Looks great on pouring. very nice rich sweetish dark chocolate cakey roast, but alas a tiny taint of sourness at first. quite light palate, pleasat carbonation. lovely roast in the mouth, not too sweet, in fact pleasantly dry and burnt. finish dry, dry leaves, pleasant burntness, and a nice little tingle from earthy hops. drinkability good. nice schwartz.
