This schwartzbeer was a little bit watery and a little light but it was pleasant and sessionable. No smoke notes except in the aroma. Just a nice easy drinking black lager.

[3105-20100703] Tap. Toasted stinky socks and smoky charred beet aroma hints at some tree earth. Clear, dark red body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Mild earthy tree malt continues in the flavour with a lingering earthy malt aftertaste. Medium body. Fair.

Coke pour with an of-white head with lacing effects. Roasted aromas with some coffee and burnt wheat. Tastes of watery coffee, faint dark chocolate, and some smokiness. Thick mouth feel, fills you up quite fast. Almost syrup-like in regards to the palate. A tasty beer.

(draught) medium clear brown with decent tan bubbles around the edges. Nose of lightly sweet brown sugar, mild watery coffee, touch of smoke, and some cereal grains. Taste of cereal grain, watery coffee, a touch of smoke, and light brown sugar. Hate to repeat the Mose but it tasted exactly like i expected after smelling it. Light body and lots of flavor for the style.

Nickls (1881) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 26, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap at Atlanta location) Poured with a thin mostly white head. Really deep dark brown coloring with light brown highlights. Good curtain-like lacing. Aroma: Light maltiness; some roasted aromas; touch of raisin; good but kinda muted overall on this front. Flavors are more vibrant than the aroma suggests. Rich, roasted maltiness with dark fruit sweetness. Nearing on medium for the MF, nice breath of effervescent carbonation. This would be a great session brew.

Its dark brown color is definitely more appealing than their other selections. It has a mild coffee taste. Good after taste.
