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.

This bottled brew sampled at Dicks Bodacious Bar-B-Que RB event poured a small sized head of finely sized light brown colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left a poor lacing and a semi-opaque dark ruby red brown colored body. The aroma was sweetly malty. The mouth feel contained a mild malt bit but was otherwise unnoted. The flavor contained notes of this sweet malt and mild brown malts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Very dark brown beer with red tones. Head is beige and creamy, not long lasting. Flavour is sweet and filled with bitter chocolate. Finish is dry, with good cleansing bitterness. Soft on the palate, a bit watery body. Even though it is bottom-fermented, it tastes more like a decent porter than a schwartzbier
