5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Beautiful roasted, slightly smoky flavor with generous sweetness from a mellow malt. Perle hops are mild and round off a beautiful boquet. Extremely well made.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Too much coffee. Roasted and charred bitter, all immersed into coffee. Tastes like one of those Japanese cold coffee drinks one gets out of vending machines. Palate is chalky, but that does not compensate for the faults. The aroma is the worst: fetid, it does smell like coffee that comes out of you a couple of hours after you’ve had plenty of caffeine.

Schwarzbier which sits comfortably on the roasty end of the scale without much else. Pretty good beer but one is enough tonight.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Deep black body, medium off-white head. Nose is mild malty caramel tones, smooth grainy hints. Hard to place. Some licorice tones in the back, but not much else is going on here. Taste is caramel, ashes, grains, dark chocolate and hints of leather. Medium to thin body, medium carbonation. OK for a schwartz, I guess.
