Appearance: near black, (ruby highlights when held to the light) with two-fingers of creamy light tan head shrinking to a thick collar and leaving generous lace rings. Aroma: dark chocolate, cacao, coffee, pumpernickel, a hint of smoke. Taste: predominantly bitter dark chocolate, a bit of roast coffee beans, slightly burnt toast, mellow, earthy hops. Finish: smooth, clean, with lingering dark malts balancing against earthy hops. Notes: A written deScription cannot do this beer justice. Simply the best schwarzbier Iíve ever had, better than traditional German versions, better than any American attempt. Beautiful pour, attractive nose, delicious, balanced flavors, creamy-but-refreshingly-drinkable palate, and a sessionable 4% abv. Near perfect. Iím very sad that I only grabbed a single bottle, and will be on the lookout for more.

A drinkable session black lager with good taste. A good example of a Schwarzbier which is a difficult thing to find on tap lately. I found it at Riverwest Filling Station in Milwaukee, WI.

Pours a dark brown with a tan head and good lacing. Roasted malty aroma. Roasty, borderline smokey, and lightly bitter. A bit watery and not much to the flavor. Fairly light bodied for a dark beer.
