3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Oddly golden color with a thin head. Fairly grainy, dusty aroma along with a very light bit of roasted malt. Taste is much the same. Moderately hoppy finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the Happy Gnome in St Paul, Minnesota. Pours a clear dark copper amber brew with an average creamy beige head that has some nice retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of toasted dark black malt, some dark chocolate with a hint of vanilla and some flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of toasted dark malt and some bakers chocolate. Finish has a toasted dark malt aftertaste with hardly no bitterness. Though this schwarzbier is one of the lighter in color it still has the aroma and flavor of a schwarzbier.
