3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Falling Rock. Pours cola-colored with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Roast malt, fruit and florals in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, nuts and fruit. The finish is roasty with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Not a bad beer. Light and drinkable and fairly crisp. Unfortunately got served to me in a Texas bar without a glass donor was hard to fully appreciate.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Similar to a New Castle with a little bit less caramel flavor to it and a little bit of a smokey finish to the end. It is drinkable, which is what they were going for, but not interesting enough to buy again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruddy dark brown on black with a central and rimmed etch character. Smells of soil, porter dust, some clean grain - a rather simple nose. Flavors of coffee ground, metal, nice roasty porter character over a sweet light malt base. No hop character, light astringency I get on kolsches. Light bodied with sharp, fun carb and a fairly dry finish. I generally like schwarzbier, and this is no excpetion, but is not that nice.

Nice enough appearance. It poured into my glass very dark with a finger or two of head. This one is very watery though. You can taste a bit of roastiness but not too much stands out. This is a nice refreshing beer, but it is not winning any awards.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Draught @ Fat Grass: This one pours a clear, dark caramel color. There was a wisp of an off-white head on it that left no lacing. The aroma is a touch light but good. Light roastiness and chocolate, maybe some earthiness and toffee. The taste is good. A touch of malt sweetness. Some roasted malts, chocolate and graininess. Perhaps a touch of smokiness and a slightly dry finish. Nice.
