Pours black, not a hint of light gets through. Thick foamy head, almost rootbeer-esq in appearance. Smooooth.. good mouthfeel, very drinkable. Smell roasted malt, coffe chocolate, very nice. A lot of porter characteristics, yet lighter in body ike a swartzbier. Very good beer and highly recommended.

excellent black lager, love the surfing theme too. it could not be priced any better, at under 3 bucks a bomber, this could become a go to for me. dark brown pour with a lively rising mocha head, looks like a good porter. smells like heavily roasted malts, more than the normal schwarzbier calls for. chocolate too, dark and rich, and lager yeast. the depth of flavor caught me off guard, lots of complexity and layering here. chocolate is really forward, cool in a lager, and the roast of the barley is about as dark as it can be. lager yeast doesn't do quite enough to lighten it up and shorten the finish, that part is a bit out of whack for the style guidelines, but I almost prefer its chalky long bitter finish because I really like the flavors here. a touch thin on the body for all the depth, but it is a lager I suppose. an excellent beer overall, one of the better black lagers ive had.
