This is a really nice little beer. Very drinkable and flavorful. Pours a dark brown with a light tan head. Roast and coffee are the primary flavors and aroma. At 4% I could drink this all day. I’ve had better but this is very enjoyable.

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.

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.
