7th September 2014
Almost opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is crispy and semi dry. Roasty dark malts but delivered in a light and smooth fashion. Touch of dry dark chocolate. Good light piney hops, trace of citrus. Light dry finish. Stands on the cusp of being a CDA I would venture. Very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home via trade with Ernesto987. Huge thanks! I just had two of the worst beers of my life and I’m going to try to not let that influence this rating. Pours a deep brown/black appearance with a spidery, dark brown head and nice retention. An amazing huge and potent, coffee, roasty malty aroma with some piney, burnt malty, a touch smoky, light citrusy aroma. Chocolate, uber roasty, burnt/smoky malty, spicy, very potent, piney hoppy flavor that finishes quite dry. Over the top, American-style version of a German classic, but quite tasty. Sure, I really like this but fucken a bro, it ain’t the best Schwarzbier in the world, bros.
