Pretty good for Schlafly! A nice caramelly, malty lager that has a good body to it and good carbonation. Solid brew.

Near black appearance with an average size, fast fading, beige head and light lacing. Moderately sweet toasted malt aroma. Earthy, modestly hopped flavor with notes of semi sweet chocolate and a bit of dark fruit. Medium-to-light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel and an average length finish.

Can from Total Wine. Pours cola brown with a small tan head that dissipates rather quickly The aroma has some light roasted malt, a tiny bit of a chocolate or espresso in the distance. The taste is a bit of roasted malt, a bit of a dark chocolate, pretty light and refreshing. Fairly solid offering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep dark brown body with a cloudy, muddy glow at the bottom. Nice dense two centimetre tall light brown coloured head, as well. Aroma of rich nutty and earthy malt with a hint of brown sugar, cardboard and toffee also noticeable, but a fairly mild scent throughout. Light-bodied; Very mild earthy and nutty flavour with some toffee, caramel, hazelnuts, peanuts and a splash of milk at the end. Aftertaste shows a very light malt note and some nutty sweetness, and that’s it - very subdued and not showing much at all, especially complexity. Overall, a decent beer that is very easy to drink, but doesn’t show much in the way of flavours or style - it’s just a very mild schwartz with not enough complexity or depth. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 09-March-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 29-May-2014.

12oz can into a plastic cup. Toast and with a slight hop finish. Fairly neutral but very drinkable. Lot of sportsing going on here at Florence Freedom. Late chocolate presence.

This was a great beer and I wish I could have had more, pours black with some light coming through the edges. Smells really good, very sweet with some chocolate and coffee, taste is great loads of chocolate/coffee/caramel but very light, could drink a whole 6er
