Bomber. Remember this being rather full bodied and flavored for what’d you might expect. Nice smokey mate flavor well built into the schwarz realm of the brew. Good stuff!

hayduke (5205) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 28, 2010
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a dark brown with a fat tan head and lots of lacing. Nose of roasted malts with some coffee and chocolate. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is roasted malts and the finish is dry. Not the best schwarzbier ever, but easy drinking and enjoyable.
