Bottle sample. Aroma was barely noticable. Flavor was a little smoky and had a little noticable alcohol. An ok beer, not much more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oiz bottle. Almost black in color with some ruby highlights. Aroma is moderately roasty, some dry chocolate, a touch of noble hops. Taste is roasty for the style, with some chocolate, and a moderate malty sweetness. Light bodied, with a light to moderate hop bitterness in the finish. nice, clean profile. This one may be a touch roastier than other shwarzbier’s I’ve had but it was enjoyable.

Bomber shared by theisti. Pour a sort of Coke brown with a tan head. Sort of a pilsner aroma with touches of roast and some herbal hops. The flavor is light, but shows off some chocolate flavors and good roasted notes. Medium body with a ashy dry finish. High carbonation. Really an ejoyable beer. Very sessionable. Thanks Tim.

Courtesy mcbackus. Pours a dark brown, with an off white head. Smells of big caramel, graham crackers, and smooth vanilla. The flavor was a little mellow, dark fruits and malts encompass its identity. A little roasty with sometoasted malt in there too. Nice drinking little schwarzbier, nothing too complex or exciting, but certainly drinkable.
