This beer is great. Has the right balance and holds a touch to many black lagers. Very easy finish. Great smooth and bitter taste.

Underrated and just rare enough to catch my eye at the pub.

12oz bottle, no apparent freshness date. I had this one a few years ago and gave it a 3.5/5. Thanks to my brother-in-law and father-in-law for the "Family Reunion" mixed 12 pack for my birthday. It's nice to come back to this particular beer.
A - dark brown with a frothy tan head that holds decent retention
S - roasted grain, chocolate, earthy hops
T - nice blend of flavors with roasted barley, chocolate, coffee, caramel, and earthy hops
M - thinner body, ample carbonation, clean finish
O - just as I remember it, good flavor, good representation of a Schwarzbier, but nothing spectacular. I'd get this in a pinch if needed but wouldn't search it out in the future.

Tastes like a slightly stronger variant of a Shiner Bock.
