3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Whole Foods, Lynnfield MA. Appearance is dark brown with mahogany, effervescent sparkle, and 1/2-finger width creamy head with nice retention and nice soapy lacing. Aroma is lightly roasted malt with dark fruit, noble hops, and hint of chocolate. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with thin, creamy texture, soft carbonation and crisp, dry texture. Overall, this is a pretty decent Schwarzbier. Not sure why rated so low.

Like dark layers and there is plenty of good chocolate roasted notes. Not my favorite though.

Adding a pre-Ratebeer beer that I’m not going to have again. Originally had in Sorrento, April 2015. Sweet surgary. Enjoyable enough. The bar owner was interested to see what I thought as he thought it was horrible.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
For the book. Aroma is roasted malt, burned, but sweet, dark fruit and coffee, but a lager quality is present. Appearance is dark dark brown, tan head, poured thin. Taste is caramel, sweet, then roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate, easy to drink. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, a faint roasted malt and sweet aftertaste. Overall, not good for a Schwarz but easy to drink on a hot day.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown to black with a thin tan ring. Thin to medium body with some lacing. Not much of an aroma. Fairly thin feel with a slightly tart and sweet malt taste. Flavors are not very bold or lasting. Pretty plain but drinkable. OK but nothing special.
