COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A German-style black lager. Hints of caramel and coffee blend in this light to medium dark lager. Do not let the color fool you, this beer goes down very easy. May the schwartz be with you!

Aromas of coffee, roasted malts, chocolates - just woody, asshes, not much of a fruity tyouch. Same for flavour. Very 2-dimensional. Watery. Faithful to style, I suppose.

Bready malt and some unfortunate metallic funk in the aroma. Sweet, bready flavor with caramel and chocolate. A little coffee bitterness in the finish. Easy drinking and pretty good.

On draft. Pours flat black with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Warm, roasty aroma. Smooth, medium mouthfeel. Roasty flavor with hints of chocolate and toffee. Very drinkable beer.

Bottle split with Pedro. Pours a deep brown, near black with medium beige head and lace. Nose is chocolate, roasted malt, bread. Medium body. Smooth and well balanced. Really good for a style I don’t typically care for.

Sweeter than I usually like my black beers, but overall a very decent beer. Lots of roasted character.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle. Poured black with a medium-size light tan head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is light roasted malt and a hint of coffee. Flavor is roasted malt, lightly sour fruit. Low to moderate sweetness and low bitterness. Nice but kind of boring. Medium, slightly creamy mouthfeel.
