3.9/5 rDev +9.9%
On-tap at Bootlegger's
A: The pour is dark brown in color with a big off-white head.
S: Slightly acidic, as nearly all schwarzbiers seem to be, but a nice roastiness. Lots of coffee aromas and a pronounced earthiness. Light notes of chocolate, dark chocolate to be precise.
T: A very nice roast and coffee flavor with a surprising creamy smoothness. Lots of dark chocolate flavor and even a bit if milk chocolate. A mild bitterness to the beer and fairly subtle hop flavor.
M: Medium in body with a medium to high carbonation.
O: A Schwarzbier is not a terribly well done style a lot of the time, so it was nice to have a pretty good one.

Pours a light black (if that makes sense) with brown hues. Finger of off white head. Minimal lacing. Head dies down to a ring of foam.
The only thing I get in the nose is maybe some light coffee.
Tastes of light chocolate, light smokey roast flavors, some coffee, very clean and straight forward.
Kind of acidic with a bunch of carbonation. Light bodied. Pretty refreshing.
A solid schwarzbier.

On-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours a dark brown with a light white head. Some lace.
S: Definite roast, dark chocolate, hint of sugar cane.
T: Dark chocolate, with a hint of burnt malt. Some molasses mid-way.
M: Fairly smooth, frothy, light-bodied, overall, thin finish.
O: Not a bad schwarzbier, definitely in the East German tradition, worth a try.
