3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, via MrWalker. Clear brown body with chestnut highlights. Fluffy one inch light brown head with nice retention. Chocolate malt nose with some nuttiness and a lighter note of roasted malt. Alot of chocolate malt on the flavor as well, with a finish that leans to the astringent burnt malt side with hints of smoke. Moderate bitterness in mid swallow and finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation, thinning a bit on the finish. A nice enjoyable beer, not overly complex on the flavor, but certainly interesting enough to seek out if you’re a fan of Schwarzbiers.
