12 ounce bottle. Thanks Brandon. Pours dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark grain, and caramel. Very good. Onslow (1522) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pout from a 12oz bottle. Deep dark reddish brew with tan head. Aroma of roasted grain, coffee - very stoutish. Taste is deeply roasted grains with coffee overtones _ I expect it to get heavier as the swallow continues but it gets lighter and more agile while still delivering a great complex malty roasted grain taste. Most schwarzbeir’s that I have tried ahve been somewhat enhanced lagers but this one really rocks. lukedarock (246) - Howell, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Smell is almost stout like very good caramel cocoa, deep dark beer with a reddish brown tinge, flavor has character everything from chocolate coffee caramel to, earthy and alcohol (not to much just right) really like this beer, the lager like approach turned to really work for this beer will buy again good job shorts superspak (5894) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2015
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 2/2/2015. Pours slightly hazy very dark brown color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roast/smoke earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of dark/roasted malt and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roast/smoke earthiness. Fair amount of herbal hop and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean in lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, fairly creamy, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent schwarzbier style. All around great robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roasted malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering. two7offsuit (448) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 2, 2015
