On tap at the Brea location. A dark brown beer with an off-white head. Light roasted aroma with some dried fruit notes. Pleasant roasted flavor with some bitterness. Dried fruits and a touch of caramel too. Dry on the palate, a bit too carbonated. Dry, roasted finish. A good schwarzbier. 130812

brokensail (10653) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 6, 2011
A: The beer pours nearly black with a creamy tan head sitting on top. S: Smells of coffee and coffee ground with a nice roasted malt base to it. Light sweetness in the form of toffee and molasses with some dark chocolate/cocoa powder in there as well. A mild ash note is detectable, unfortunately. T: Really a solid flavor. Roasted malts and coffee are the primary flavor components. Plenty of dark chocolate with a subtle molasses, licorice, and toffee flavor. Light earthy hops and minimal bitterness. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: One of the better Taps beers I’ve had. Really easy to drink.

Tap. Pours black with an average, fizzy light beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (toast, nutty, caramel), light hops (woody), and average esters (fruity) and notes of dates and chocolate. Flavor is heavy roasted malt and chocolate with light bitterness and fruitiness. Light body, low warmth, medium carbonation and a dry finish.
