3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
How: Bottle (500 ml) at Mont-Carmel tasting. Shared by mathieuc, thanks!
>>> A smooth and well balanced Schwarzbier that is pretty easy drinking.
- Clear amber-brown with a medium beige head and some lacing.
- All the flavors are well dosed, giving the beer a pretty good balance.
- It’s tasty stuff and really easy drinking.
- Medium body and medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is a bit silky and finish is dry.
- I think I need to try some other Westbrook German-style beers as I liked their gose and this one a lot.
Flavors: Roasted malts, milk chocolate, cocoa powder, resinous notes, mineral presence, mild pine and mild caramel.

Pours a dark brown with a small offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of chicory and coffee. Dark indeed. Taste is of coffee with the slightest bit of ash (bummer). Both body and carbonation were moderate. Overall I thought it was pretty good for a schwarzbier. Maybe I need to seek out the better examples of the style now?

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark black, almost pitch, strong creamy tan head with very nice lacing. Aroma of malts, chocolate and roasted mostly with some rye. Taste low sweet caramel, bitter chocolate, roasted malt, some toasted nuttiness and bread, burnt bitterness in the finish. Dry roasted aftertaste. Medium to full bodied and creamy. More bitter and burnt than most Schwarzs, maybe a bit too much for the style.
