2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep brown or close to black. Faint scent of roasted malt. Watery, dominated by unpleasant bitterness and too light on the palate. Too light to be a real Schwarzbier. This used to be a better beer.

500ml matte can as Premium Schwarz Bier featuring the "cool star coolness indicator"."P"fpfpfppffungstädter, it means "horsecock" German, it’s all good. This is their "black" horse cock variant. Anyways it pours a cola bornw with a foamy dark off-white head. Aroma is nuts, metal, and herbs. Produced 4 months ago it isn’t exacltly old by import standards, but it doesn’t smell invigorating. Falvor is decent, definitely a more "expressive" schawrzbier. Way more maltiness, some vinegar, savory yeast, caramel, toffee, licorice root, dried fruits, herbs, not crisp and clean like a good schwarz, but not terrible, its got a lot of unique flavors but that makes it flawed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can pour into nonic pint glass from Redstone Liquors. Appearance is clear dark reddish-brown with nice sparkle, finger-width foamy light brown head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma is subtle brown bread/molasses. Taste is sweet fruity quality, almost like grape juice, with late bready/molasses. Palate is medium bodied with average-to-lively carbonation and dry finish. Overall, aroma is mild and it’s too sweet and fruity for the style. Still, not an unpleasant drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from the Boise Co-op. Dark brown pour, small foamy head. Musty aroma, leaning towards sour. Taste also kind of sour, lacking the real bitter bite of the style. Musty throughout, more sweet than bitter.
