Bottle 600ml at Cest What?
Aroma: tad too fruity , lacking dry metallic feel, vineous with hints of coffee . Soft finish.
Apperance: dark ruby with touch of brown. Off white lighter top.
Taste/Palate etc. medium bodied with thinner side. Some sugary sweetness with roast, Thinner finish . Tad oily malt in character , felt a bit like bock with dark roasted malts. Good but not as Schwartz.

600 mL bottle. Black body with a little transparency. Smells very nutty with roasted malts and some milk chocolate. Tastes much the same. Milk chocolate more prominent, nutty malts behind it with a bit of caramel sweetness. Roasty finish, but mostly sweet. Medium bodied. Pretty sweet, but tasty.

Makes me think of the Tom Green in a less sweet/more bitter way. My first schwarzbier, which makes me think of imperial Stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: clear brown with two fat fingers of fluffy beige head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, chunky soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: cocoa, toasted bread, liquorice, grassy, mild coffee, hint of molasses. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate-soft carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (4/5)
Heckuva lager, even if they don’t know how to spell "Schwarzbier"... malt dominant , but not overly sweet, with a smooth, softly-carbonated body. Probably one of the best of the style I’ve had, if not the best. (15/20)

600ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark chocolate with hints of coffee and dark fruits. Taste is a dark fruity and chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and grassy hop bitterness. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a well done brew that is full flavoured and well balanced. Recommended.
