Uggh! Smells good, looks good, tastes like you’re stuck in the snow!! What off taste, nasty ass yeast is this made with? Sour trying to be hidden behind a smokescreen of weird grain and odd hops. Fizzy. Badly fizzy. Avoid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brown with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops, grain, caramel and bready malt and some black cherries. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of caramel malt, bread crust and herbal hops. Finish is long and herbal, semi-dry. Overall it is good brew, but taste more like Dunkel than Schwarz beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma - is ok, it has nice rich malts in the nose and a little dark notes.
Appearance - is a dark brown Coca-Cola color. Not much head, joust a faint halo of white.
Taste - it’s malts ahoy, semi-sweet
Feel - is sticky and sweet, and the finish is swift and soft.
It is a nice beer for session drinking. Very enjoyable, with some distinct characteristics.

2.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark red/brown to black. No discernible aroma. Initial earthy flavor that quickly disappears and a late arriving malty aftertaste. Pretty unremarkable.

Brown, medium bodied chocolate malt , light bitterness. Decent Schwarzbier, a bit light for a Winter beer. Most impressed that Genesee can contract brew a decent Schwarzbier.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not a great winter ale. Lacking in any type of taste, this beer by East Coast Beer Co. doesn’t bring that cinnamon flavor you expect with a winter seasonal.

Bottle from Capone’s. Mahogany pour with minimal head. Nose is roasty vienna malt. Tastes roasty and virenna malty, with hopcitrus, earthy toffee, an overall semi-dryness, and some late nuts, just like your sister when she stays at the bat all night.
