An easy drinking medium body lager, with just a tiny hint of roastiness and a noticeable but well-balanced hop presence that’s not overly bitter. An opaque black lager that reveals deep ruby undertones in the light. Munich, Pilsner and Black Malt flavors play off the flowery, spicy notes of Noble German hops. Cold fermentation and conditioning with Bavarian lager yeast assures a clean draught with a dry finish.

On tap. Pours dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma of light dark grain, faint hint of chocolate with hints of earthy hop. Flavor is much the same but unlike the description, the hop stands out more then other schwartzbiers I have had, but just a tad. Light-medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, I would have a second one!

Pint glass at DH- served a black color with ruby undertones, 1mm off tan head that tried to lace. Aroma of milk chocolate, caramel, and determination- hey, that’s what the notes say! Hits the mouth with a well recieved medium body, malt tastes just slightly toasted- close enough, almost a silky sensation as it comes off the tongue. Austin’s forgotten brewery can still turn some heads.

kidmartinek (4692) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2012
A dark brown medium bodied beer with a frothy tan head. Clean minerally aroma. Flavor is mostly toasty malt with a good hop balance. Backend is slightly creamy. Good on a spring day for sure.

On tap at Whip-In during RBWG 2012. Pours a dark amber with a small beige head with sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a raisin malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt flavor and light dry finish. A decent schwarzbier from Live Oak.

mar (5256) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Black with a cream head. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate, very smooth. Great on the palate, very smooth, chocolate, light roasted malts, faint yeast, and a great finish.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
2/25/12. On tap during RBWG 2012. Clearish black pour with a small tan head. The aroma is a bit plain - somewhat watery but with a hint of roast and butter. Light toast in the flavor with definite butter. Diacetyl? Eh.
