look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is dark brown with brown on the bottom edges of the glass; head is thin and dissipates to a ring.

Smell is roasted malt, chocolate, clean hop maybe some grass, maybe a little sweet in its presence.

Taste is on the sweeter side, but clean lager taste - no fruitiness noted - roasted malts are upfront melding into a chocolate sweetness that lingers; hops are present and quite bitter, no apparent strong flavor.

Mouthfeel is pleasant, but definitely on the sweet side, lingering on the tongue and with a strong bitterness.

Overall, a sweet schwarzbier, but clean flavors and a touch bitter. Its an interesting take on the style, maybe tone down on the amount of roasted malts?

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of roasted malts, a bit smokey. Taste is the same, lots of roasted malts and smokiness, a bit of hops are present as well. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
