3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. It forms a dense, almost creamy dark beige head over a clear looking almost black body, with a reddish hue. The aroma is roasted and lightly berry-ish, with a touch of dark chocolate and coffee. Burnt flavor with coffee and dark chocolate, some sweetness too. A bit too much actually, at least if it wants to be a true schwarzbier. Medium body, a bit heavy on the carbonation. Lasting roasted finish. A nice beer, but sort of not living up to what expected. 120324

Bottled @Beer Hunters 0.66 ltr
Deep ruby brown color, small beige head. Intensive coffee, cocoa powder, chocolate and caramel in the nose. Quite good body for 5% beer. Coffee, caramel, slightly ashy dark malts. Some bitter notes in the finish - not sure if it is from hops of is it bitterness of coffee. Coffeish, decent Schwarzbier.

Draught, Lost Abbey, multiple occasions
Pretty close to black. Nice creamy head. Lightly roasty, chocolate, with vague hints of smoke and nuts. Full body. Lots of rich chocolate flavours. Sweet and supple. American lager to be sure, but so smooth and complex.
