3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can from "Lifesource",Salem Oregon
Pours a very very dark mahogany,almost black with a nice frothy tan head.
Very deep toasted,roasted malt aromas..like dark french coffee with a touch of heavy cream. Nice.
Taste is bitter salty dark chocolate and treacle. Some ashy aspects to the flavour also but its nice,finished dark coffee no sugar!
Nice dry palate..goes well with the style.
Good different beer they call it a Stout lager but i think its a schwarzbier.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint can. Pours jet black with a creamy espresso foam on top. Nose is mild espresso and dried grass with hints of berry, cream and caramel. Flavors of lightly tart blackberry, cream, piquant green herb, caramel and dry cocoa. Finish has some char and ash that keeps the sweeter malts in check. Medium plus body has a smooth medium carbonation. Nice balance with just a wee bit of a slant to the sweet side.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with 2" of tannish foam.
Smell is of coffee, dark chocolate and heavy on the roast,
The taste is a mix of both dark and milk chocolate leaning more towards the former. That and the coffee and roasted malt give this brew a decidedly bitter taste overall.
Smooth creamy mouthfeel.
This is delicious!

I don’t like many crafts in cans. This "stout lager?" is delicious though. Almost chocolatey. Mildly bitter, doesn?t hang on. Nice brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours two fingers of tan head on a black body. Looks great.
The aroma is chocolate, a little burnt malt and ripe fruit.
The taste loaded with burnt and roasted malt. The bitterness right in perfectly. The finish has the slightest sweetness.
Medium body with some fizz but moderate carbonation overall.

It’s actually a combination between a German Schwarzbier and an American Stout. Super tasty, good alcohol content.

Can:   Roasty like a porter, a bit smoother, nice mouthfeel, almost silky.   Lots of black malt.   Very dark in color, nice head and lacing.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Not a big fan of Schwarzbiers, but this one was better than many others.   Clean finish, roasted and black malts linger.   So many in the style are too thin, but this one is actually chewy, which I like.
