3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark copper-brown colour with full ruby highlights. The head is frothy, bubbly, decent lasting with some nice creamy lace. Aromas of roasted malts and molasses. Hints of rustiness eventually come out. Roasted malt taste with some nice nuttiness. Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Nothing too special, but an easy-drinking Schwarzbier.

On tap at Yanks. A bit thin. Nice and dark and malty but not much going on. Was hoping for a swarzbier and this is not that.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Medium brown. No head. Aroma is toasty, a bit nutty. Light body, and a bit toasty. Too light, though I will say there are supermarket schwarzbiers in Germany like this..

Bottle - Toast and smoky notes. Deep brown with a beige head. Very light and thin caramel flavours. Taste is very boring considering the nose.

Decent head and jet black body.soft barley aroma. Roasted barley flavour with coffee hints. Weaker on the mouth. Adequate but not exciting.

Dark cola colouring. Thin head. Crisp flavour balanced with molasses. Heavily carbonated, but thin and lacks texture.

On tap. Light roast and faint caramel aroma. Cereal and hay flavours, faint mixed fruit finish. Not great but better than the pale ale.

Pretty tasty lager. Reminds me of a stout just a little lighter in body. Taster is very stoutish with taste of roasted barley some slight coffee notes. Decent and enjoyable
