2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. REally a schwarzbier, it is heavy for the style, lots of roasted malt character, not my ideal schawrzbier.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the Calumet brewpub in Chilton, Wisconsin. Pours a clear cola caramel amber with a decent white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of multi-grain malt, some flowery hops and a touch of roasted nuts. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonation with a smooth and creamy texture. Finish has a dry roasted malt aftertaste that even has a slightly dry bitter that lingers around.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark chestnut color with a near white head. Aromas of toasted malt and bread. A mild herbal hops in the background. Flavors are quite dry with again toasted to lightly roasted grains. Dry in the finish as well with just a hint of black malt bitterness. Again drinkable brews all the way around.
