3.24/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Serving Type: 12 oz bottle poured into a glass mug.

Appearance: Deep, very dark brown. Good, foamy tan head with moderate lacing.

Smell: Mild roasted malt, very slightly smoky.

Taste: Roasted and sweet malt; some mild bitter and sour black coffee flavors.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied and moderately carbonated.

Overall: A bit too malty sweet to be very refreshing, but still easy to drink a few.

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

Smell: Light malt aromas, but not a very much aroma.

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.
