COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An easy drinking medium body lager, with just a tiny hint of roastiness and a noticeable but well-balanced hop presence thats not overly bitter. An opaque black lager that reveals deep ruby undertones in the light. Munich, Pilsner and Black Malt flavors play off the flowery, spicy notes of Noble German hops. Cold fermentation and conditioning with Bavarian lager yeast assures a clean draught with a dry finish.

Aroma of roasted malts. Pours a brownish black with a rapidly dissipating tan head and no lacing. The taste is robust. Dark roasted malts, wood, with hints of coffee. Medium medium-light with medium carbonation. Overall, I liked this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint glass at DH- served a black color with ruby undertones, 1mm off tan head that tried to lace. Aroma of milk chocolate, caramel, and determination- hey, thats what the notes say! Hits the mouth with a well recieved medium body, malt tastes just slightly toasted- close enough, almost a silky sensation as it comes off the tongue. Austins forgotten brewery can still turn some heads.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2013
Tap flight at Flying Saucer San Antonio. Brown pour that you can see through. No detectable nose. Flavor is roasty with a sweet syrupy characteristic and bitter finish in the back of the mouth while remaining sweet in the to the in front. Impressive slippery and creamy mouthfeel. Surprise.

Draft. Dark brown with small tan head. Aroma of caramel and butterscotch. Light body with bitter roasted malts upfront and a cardboard and stale coffee finish.

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - APR 5, 2015
Roasted barley, some tobacco, a bit of toffee, and earthy hops in the nose. Medium mouthfeel with a medium-to-thin body and moderate carbonation. The taste is roasty, earthy bitter with caramely sweetness. I liked it.

On tap at Uncle Billy Austin. Roast and faint noble hop aroma. Dark brown with good white head that lingers. Tastes of roast malt, toffee, licorice, chocolate malt. Medium palate, correct for style. Dry finish. Good Schwartz Bier for the US.
