3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 May the Shwarzbier with you. I kid, I kid... Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured dark, near black with light amber/brownish highlights and a khaki head. This one was interesting. Palate was thick, a bit full bodied. A little buttery with toasted caramel and malt. Some sweet malt, a him of roast, cocoa powder, milk chocolate. Not as clean and crisp. I remember having this a couple of years back and it being much better.
