3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at 3F. Served in a clear plastic cup. Pours with an inch of frothy brownish head. Mild aroma of dirt and malt. Mouthfeel is light and crisp with some chalkiness and a tiny bit of tartness. Taste is exactly as a schwartzbier should be. Coffee-like, slightly musty, crisp and earthy... but all in a good way. Excellent schwartzbier. Hopefully 3F will bottle one and send it my way.

Very dark pour with a small head. Great lacing though. Chocolate malt through this whole beer. Creamy mouth. There is a strange yeasty taste in there. Not bad though. Very easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at 3F. Pours a deep brown-black with a tannish head. Nose is toasty and chocolatey, more so than expected. Kind of somewhere between a brown ale & a porter, I’d say. Some noted caramel notes as well? Soft hopping and clean. On tasting, more of those light chocolate notes come through. Body gets a bit fuller as it warms up. Sweetness also comes out, still, really solid beer, if not quite a schwarz.
