look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
On tap poured into a Sprecher Mug.
Appearance- Very dark brown with a finger of kakhi head that dissipates into about a third finger all the way to the bottom leaving light lacing.
Smell- Molasses and chocolate. Not strong smells here but it is on tap so it's expected.
Taste- Lots of molasses and coco with some twinges of dark fruit and citrus hops.
Mouthfeel- A little light here but make for a very drinkable Schwarzbier. The carbonation and hop finish work well here.
Overall- Great drinkable German dark beer and the best beer from Sprecher.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Very dark brown, almost black. Thin, light tan head dissipated quickly and didn't leave much lacing.
S: Toasted malts, smoke, and an earthy bitterness.
T: Beer is sweet with toasted, caramel undertones. Hints of smokiness and earthy hops. Aftertaste lingers and is almost burnt tasting, but not unpleasantly so. Acidity becomes more pronounced as the beer warms.
M: Somewhere between light and heavy. Medium? Definitely not thin, but not quite as thick as I would have liked and expected. Medium carbonation.
O: Delicious. I have a soft spot for black lagers and this didn't disappoint. I really enjoyed its deep bitterness and it's carbonation is more than I am used to since I drink a lot of porters and stouts, so it was very nice for a change.
