3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at the brewpub. Pours a deep red, near black. The aroma is malty with evident lager crispness and cereal. This is a little roasty, but not as much as a few others in the style. There’ s just a hint at coffee. The flavor is grainy and not heavy. Overall, it’s a mild schwarzbier but still a decent session brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ticked this months ago.
Poured up at the brewpub with nice deep rutty red to mahogany body supporting a tiny dark tan head. The aroma is a little timid offering snippets of dark roasted maltiness and some toffee. The taste delivers a mix of dark roasted malts, some smooth black licorice and then faint hints of yeasty notes that border on some esteriness. To midway and into the finish a moderate level of burnt malts comes to the surface and makes itself known among the other flavors.
