3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is a roasty, malt, and hops. The brew is black with virtually no light coming through. The head is medium brown and clings to the sides as it dissipates. It has a roasted, sweet taste that is very pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a strong malt smell with a sweet follow on
Appearance- The beer is black as night and it has a nice creamy tan head
Taste- : A lightly bitter flavor with a rich hop taste.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation
Overall- This reminds me of Guinness Black Lager, but I prefer Guinness over this. Not terrible and I would recommend people to give it a whirl

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good opaque pour w/ a retaining tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is a little funky - kind of sweet yet sour. The taste is relatively clean w/ a little bit of that odd sweet/sour combo & a touch of roastiness. Easily drinkable if nothing else!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was somewhat dark and a slight brown around the edges. The head was about a finger’s worth of white foaminess that dissipated within about thirty seconds. The lacing, well, it slides for the most part.
The smell didn’t really have much but what was there was a light roasty coffee aroma trying to run about but ends up coming across extremely light.
The taste was basically the same as the smell.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and decent for the style.
Overall, I say this was a good Schwarzbier I could have again.
