3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled on 05/07/12, so Iím pushing things a bit here. Nose of full-throated chocolate with light roast and ink, dark cola pour with a foamy tan head. Watery, thin body with roast, light ash and tar, touch of syrup, receded but still pleasant chocolate. Reminds of finished cigars (and I am not a smoker), and malt is slight but relatively elastic. Crisp, lovely Lager feel. Nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at burger. in Santa Cruz. Pours deep brown with a tan head. Nice toasted burnt malt aroma. Flavor is pretty much what you expect and want out of a schwarzbier. Dark malt flavors, mild dark chocolate and roasted grains, with the airiness of a lager. Not quite as bold as Death and Taxes, say, but still a solid beer, and Iíd even consider it better than most of the German import schwarzbiers we get.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Black with a tan head. Aromas of iced coffee, chocolate, and crisp, clean lager yeast. Lots of roasted barley flavors with coffee and a hint of smoke. Medium-bodied with a clean finish.
The dark flavors donít compromise the crisp characters of a schwarzbier. Really well done.
