Solid black body with bubble beige ring head. Fresh compost nose with fig sweet highlights. Despite a decent undercurrent of carbonation this is a sooth a sipping Schwarz as I’ve enjoyed. Initial wrap of molasses and cream with the softest coffee. An initially shy roast shimmys onto the palate. Subtle and grainy at first, but thick leathery bitter whips on the finish. Carbonation leaves a mild dryness more picnic table wood than anything too offensive.

Mini-growler from the Piggly Wiggly, North Charleston. Nice dark brown pour, very rich carbonation with mild chalky sediment. Chocolate malts in the nose with an understated roastiness and mild bitter notes. Medium bodied, fairly lively without being overdone. Bitter and grassy in places without losing the density and richness of the chocolate character, and sharp in the finish where it needs to be. Well done overall, and nicely tasty.
