3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear mahogany color. Tart but not bittter. Good flavor for a lager. Not too complex though. Some great roasted malt aftertastes. As someone else wrote: "Most of the flavor of a porter, but without the heaviness and a lot less bitter." Also a lil java flavor.
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a creamy, off white head. Aroma of mild sweetness and roast. Flavor is crisp, dry, with medium roast bitterness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. This is pretty crushable. Clean finish. aracauna (3616) - Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2015

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light nuttiness, herbal, and roasted/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roast/bready malt notes with some light hop presence; and good strength. Taste of toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Light earthy/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of roast/bready malt with light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice schwarzbier style. All around good complexity and robustness of roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering. Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2014
A $4 or $5 bottle had at Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.
Appearance: Ruby. Head dissipates pretty quickly. Only a bit of lacing.
Smell: Malt. Roasty character to deem this a "dark" lager. Nothing especially interesting, but it smells nice.
Taste: Like the smell. A lot like it. A slight sort of coffee or chocolate flavor comes off as well, but it’s in the background. Hey, I guess some roasting will do that to a beer, eh? Fairly high carbonation which is expected for the style. A pretty nice beer. Simple tasting sort of beer that you can drink without feeling compelled to think too much about what you’re tasting. I’m not the only one who does that... right...? Art (3217) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Typical grape like aroma from the lager yeast. Sweet taste with a malty aftertaste.
