3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Sampled at Living Social Beerfest, 12/6/13
Aroma: The nose is on the light side, with roasted malts, some caramel, and a little bread
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a small, off-white head and average lace
Flavor: The taste is similar, plenty of roast flavor, some malty sweetness, and a light bitterness
Palate: The body feels light for the style, but not watery, with a decently clean, dry finish
I found this too be a nice, drinkable, but not all that exciting beer. There’s nothing wrong with it per se, but I can’t think of a reason to rush out for it either.

12 oz bottle pours a black color with a thin off white head. Aromas of dark roasted malt, nutty, slight smokiness. Medium bodied, smooth, very good example of this style

Dark roasted and burnt malt flavors. Reminiscent of Bassets liquorice. Very soft and supple schwarzbier.

Black with a nice light tan quilt. Smells malty, some coffee, some soil, some leather - all components come together nicely. I like the nose. Robust flavor with leather, cocoa, dark chocolates, coffee (espresso tradiitional), a slight earthy character. well fucking done. Medium on full bodied with moderate, but prickly carb. This is a sincerely well done beer. Absolute delight for the style. Really recommend this.
