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.

Pours a foggy wood brown, with a light tan frogs’ eggs bubbly head. OK label. Sweetish cereal aroma. A little tinny, tangy, sweet.. Flavor is dominated by the malting. Tannic, woody, sweet aftertaste. Medium beer. Decent, perhaps a little plain.
