Pours a dark-chocolate brown with a thick tan head. Aroma has notes of roast malt, coffee and horehound. Flavor has a core of roast malt and adds coffee, smoky, chocolate and caramel notes. Texture seems a tad thin, but is rather fizzy. May the Schwartz be with you.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: deep, dark brown; nearly black, in fact, with ruby red edges and half a finder of very creamy, light tan head that slowly shrinks to a thick, soft cap, leaving tons of lace. Aroma: light roast coffee, hint of dark chocolate and vanilla. Taste: dark, bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate pudding cup, caramel, graham cracker, vanilla, brown toast. Finish: lasting light, bittersweet chocolate and roast coffee, with just a hint of earthy, grassy hops. Notes: Superlative. I mean really, really good. Palate is creamy, and light, yet full-bodied enough to hold the well-balanced flavors. Top shelf.

Bottle... Pours black with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The nose is grainy and loaded with deeply roasted notes. The bittersweet flavor mirrors the aroma, but also offers a nice kiss of vanilla. The lengthy finish is crisp, burnt and bitter. Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm93!

Nice beer. Aroma subdued with some minimal toasty notes. Taste is on the sweet side, with some licorice notes. Finishes on the sweet side.

Total Wine, Fairfax 12oz ($2): Pours dark brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is bodega coffee mixed with caramelized sugars. Taste is simple, but very well done. Hints of chocolate and coffee. On the sweeter side of things. However, it is still refreshing. Good show.

Schwarzbier is one of my favorite styles. Devil’s Backbone is brewing an exceptional version of the style. It is rich in the aroma, taste, and palate displaying coffee and roasty malts in all. The finish is warm with a slight almost espresso like bite and gloriously long in the mouth.

Pours black with good head and lacing. Light roast, watery palate consistent with style. Light sweet finish with some caramel. Thanks to the flatmate for this one. Bottle.
