Very even balanced Schwarzbier. Certainly has the light to light-med. body with the moderate level of roasted malted sweetness. A-very dark brown to black, except when held to the light where it turns a very dark red. A single finger of tan, caramel head that remains throughout, even if very faint near the bottom of the glass. S-very roasty, pretty well burnt, toasty malt aromas. T-really awesome combo of the roasted malty nuttiness with an under abundant very dark chocolate bitter finish. I didnt get a whole bunch in the way of hoppy bitterness or earthiness.O-fantastic, well balanced Scwarzbier, by well balanced I mean not too sweet or over-roasted bitter. A really tasty, lighter bodied "blackbier"
