3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. From demolenbeershop.com.
Black color with a small tan head.
Vanilla, sweetness, mild sourness, dryness and roasted maltiness in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, vanilla, sweetness, mild coffee and some sourness. I don’t know how old this is but it doesn’t taste that fresh. Maybe a rerate sometime.

Bottle shared at King William IV - London. Pours black-brown with a foamy off-white head. Seems a bit infected. Lightly roasty on the nose. Lightly sweet, tangy, with nips of cocoa and toffee. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Sweet and somewhat tangy on the finish, some berries, cocoa. So so.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very black with a tall cappuccino head that settles to a thick ring and leaves some spotty ropes of lace. Nose involves earthy and herbal hop notes, some dark fruit, toasted malt, mint, and savory spice. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Medium bodied, fairly active, oily and coating, with a drying toasty finish. Very nice brew, a style that probably doesn’t get enough love but this shows that, done well, they’re very enjoyable, complex and drinkable at the same time.

Bottle. Black pour with a small foamy head that fades to a messy ring. Aromas are burnt marshmallows, some char, light chocolate, and toasted grains. Taste like burnt bread, marshmallow, charred wood, and light cocoa. Medium body. Really nice schwarz.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pout from a 12oz bottle. Deep dark reddish brew with tan head. Aroma of roasted grain, coffee - very stoutish. Taste is deeply roasted grains with coffee overtones _ I expect it to get heavier as the swallow continues but it gets lighter and more agile while still delivering a great complex malty roasted grain taste. Most schwarzbeir’s that I have tried ahve been somewhat enhanced lagers but this one really rocks.
