3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very deep brown with a milk-white head. Aroma is burnt fruits, deep caramel, burnt toast, and a touch of diacetly. The body is med with a refreshing amount of CO2. The flavors are very much on the sweet end. Very malty with a lot of Munich muscle. The finish is sweet and lasting. While this is not what I see as a Schwarzbier, it is a very good American take on a style.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This lager (although it is black and looks like a stout, it is therefore a lager!) Has a very nice, but brief, light brown foam. It smells very pleasant and sweet of hard roasted malt which does not allow much room for the subtle hop aroma. Furthermore, it smells a bit of English liquorice. It has a deep and protracted flavor of malt tones. Both the sweet caramel malt, but also the more savory malts which together provide a large richness in taste. Mouth feeling is creamy to bold and in the finale comes a gentle, yet sufficiently rich, hop bitterness. This beer lives completely up to its German roots and I really had also expected when it comes from one of the best microbreweries (in my opinion) in the US.

Medium to mild roast flavor, not deep. I get the description thing. Mild roast flavors and somewhat watery. Lager like black ale yes. Nothing real memorable.

En flyvsk øl der er svær at holde i glasset når den varme brise suser på vinterens sidste dag.
En røget smag. En kraftfuld udgave af Rehfvindinges Skibsøl.

Mörkbrun nästan svart öl med mörkbeige skumkrona. Doft/smak: sötma, rostad malt, kaffe, choklad, karamell och viss rökighet. Mer än ok! Flaska från Systembolaget.
