3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate and caramel undertones, almost suggestive of coffee and cake. Dark, opaque body with a thick lacy head. Earthy , bitter, taste. Evocative of molasses. Lingering. Overall a thin body, not with the richness and fat, oily finish inherent in a stout. Not a bad drop overall

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a decent sized khaki head that leaves some lacing. Aromas and flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, ash and roasted caramel. Body is too thin and watery with a slightly creamy finish. Overall a pretty standard Schwarzbier; nothing special but it gets the job done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by AUG 12. Nose a little plummy, oily dark malt. Dark ruby body that’s closer to black, with a short tan head. Taste lightly sweet with low bitterness, strikes a nice crisp-creamy balance and presents a good deal of roast; some ash, some nice burned notes, no real fruit. Aftertaste nice and toasty. Inky medium body.

Dark brown body. Aroma has chocolate, hint of coffee, but mostly just Malty. Flavour is bit metallic and this just feels poor schwartz. Bit buttery.
