3.43/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A- Very dark ruby red with a small off white head that leaves behind little lacing.

S- Mild roasted malts with a hint of dark chocolate.

T- Bittersweet upfront with a highly roasted flavor on the finish. There is a mild bitterness that fades with the malt into a burnt and slightly smokey flavor at the end.

M- Light bodied with average carbonation.

D- Highly drinkable and refreshing.

This beer is pretty straight forward. A mild bittersweetness upfront and a roasted smokey finish. It's definitely not the best black lager or beer that Spoetzl makes, but it's not bad.

3.45/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

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.
