Had at a Whole Foods beer festival. The CCB reps put this in a couple bottles for sampling.

Poured a deep blak with brown edges. Got a finger of light khaki head in top.

The aroma on this beer is a cigar mans dream! Rich oily ligero leaves, coffee, nutty with a touch of cigar smoke.

Taste isn't as cigar focused but has great coffee, almond, dark chocolate taste with some nice ligero flavors finishing on the back end.

Lighter in body and easy drinking. An appropriate amount of carbonation and a nice smokey oily finish.

Overall, this was a treat! If I would have had a cigar on me I would have been all set. I wish this was bottled because I would be soaking it all up. I have been around Germany and stayed in dusseldorf for a while and I wish their schwarzbiers were this good.
