First time trying a Schwarz.

Appearance (4) : Transparent straw colored body with...haha just kidding.

A deep dark brown opaque body with a creamy almond colored 1 finger head. The creaminess retains itself but the head does descend a bit to about 1/4".

Smell (4.25) : Roasted malts, some coffee bean, milk chocolate, spiced black licorice. A small faint whiff of coriander. This is mostly a malt-heavy beer.

Taste (4.25) : Deep, dark, roasted flavor with coffee and almond accents. I like this a lot. It begins at the tip of the tongue with a slight bitter coffee bean but in the millisecond that it slides from the tip to the middle the coffee bean disappears and is replaced by a malty robust body. The finish is slightly bitter but in a dark roast coffee type of way. A little nutty, a tad toasty, also smokey. Good all around.

Mouthfeel (3.75) : Smooth, creamy, medium bodied. The creaminess does evaporate into water a little too soon for my preference. Ends with a smokey finish.

Overall (4.22) : I would drink this again and again. Much better poured than in a bottle. This may not be the finest Schwarzbier out there (I'm sure, as this is my first) but this beer is pretty tasty. I'll drink this again in the future.

Not a fave. Too much carbonation for my liking. Decent taste. Just not what I want in a black lager.
