look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a deep dark brown color with a tan head. Leaves a good amount of lacing as well. This is a fairly good looking beer. Smells of some faint grainy notes, and some roasted malt. I've certainly had more aromatic schwarzbiers but it's still fairly nice. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy, and highly carbonated. Roasted malt flavor dominates, but it still finishes fairly dry. I want to say I can detect some floral-like flavors off the hops, but I'm not sure. They're faint if they're there. This is my favorite Shiner offering to date, I think.

Appearance: Nice dark color with good head. Head was light tan in color.

Taste: Some malt flavors, but only a little hops flavor.

Mouth feel: Thin.

Overall: Average. Ok for casual drinking, but it does not have anything that stands out.

3.44/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Motor oil dark. Amber hints when I hold it up to the light.

S: Fairly neutral aroma, which is surprising given the roast flavor notes.

T: Uncomplicated schwarzbier with a great roasted aftertaste. Crisp on the front end. This would be a good introduction to the style since it isn't too in your face.

M: Slightly syrupy when it warms up a little.

O: Enjoyable, but it's a little too heavy for me to want another one but it wasn't heavy enough to be noteworthy.

Bottle from the mixed 12 pack
Pours a solid dark brown with faint ruby highlights at the edges and a smallish off white head that quickly dissipates to nothing. Aromas of caramel and burnt sugars with just a hint of chocolate and a faint earthy hop to counter. The flavor is malty sweet with lots of darker sugars and melanoids and just a hint of earth, chocolate, and light fruit. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent dark lager, probably my favorite from the mix.
