Highly sessionable 4% black lager here. Great full roasted malt flavor with light coffee/chocolate notes. A little bit of a spritz w/caramel flavors that emerge to balance sweet with dry character from the hops.

polo_marco (328) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Smells of sweet roasted malts little bit of dark fruit. Rich dark black in color with thick three finger brownish head that slowly dissipates. Rich sweet malt Flavor with huge coffee and sweet milk chocolate coming through as the star of this brew. Full creamy body with a quick carbonation that turns to flat very fast but smooth. Very nice body and flavor one of my favorite schwarzbier thus far in my great exploration to find the worlds best beer. Nice work!

books_n_brews (162) - Baltimore-ish, Maryland, USA - MAY 13, 2016
This is my kind of beer. Dark, rich, sweet and that bitter end. Sounds a bit like a relationship... Strong chocolate smooth taste with roasty finish. If you like stouts or darks, its a very solid drinkable favorite

Pours a nice dark brown (almost black) with a small tan head. Aromas of sweet roast malts, chocolate, and hints of fruit (cherries?). Flavor is almost to sweet, I can detect little trace amounts of licorice. Felt a little watery to me on the finish.

This beer pours great. Dark Brown in color. Nice Head that dissipates quickly though. Taste is surprising for a dark lager, coffee and toasty caramel notes really come through. Overall enjoyed this beer, solid schwarzbier.

Aroma: roasted malts and roasted caramel. Appearance: deep brown color and creamy head. Taste: roasted notes, low herbal bitterness, caramel, semi-dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Really decent schwarzbier, seems to be a little bit too sweet, but thats fine.
