Frothy head. Malty chocolate aroma and flavor. Sweetish with some licorice. Nice and easy beer with enough flavor, but lacks some "bite".

Bottle. Pours pale black with a spare light brown head, mostly diminishing, spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (caramel, nutty), light hops (grass), average yeast (dough) with notes of soap. Light bodied, slick texture, light carbonation and a chalky finish. Light sweetness, acidity and bitterness; very bland beer.

11.2 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. US Schwarzbier label. The green bottle with an unmarked end date scares me. Pours a clear dark brownish red color with a medium tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, grain and raisin. Taste is toasted malts, grain, coffee, dark fruits. Thin bodied.

Tap at The Yardhouse. Brown pour wtih a small head. Aroma is very light and mostly malt driven. Some light nuts also are noticeable. Flavor is pretty damn boring. Light nuttiness and malts with nothing to stand out and get excited about.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Crystal clear, mahogony lager with a large frothy, off-white head. Good lacing
Both the flavor and aroma seem to be lightstruck. Skunky. Better flavors and aromas to note: chocolate, maple syrup and yeast. Well-hopped.
Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, bitter finish.
Just can't get past that skunkiness!
