On tap at the Ruddy Duck. Poured into a standard tap glass.

A - Deep, dark black. Light penetrates to outermost top edge but that's it. One finger head that dissipates quickly. (as a side note, almost every beer from the Duck has the same head consistency).

S - faint roasted malts and coffee. The nose is very minimal.

T - roasted malt comes out strong but fades. Coffee bitterness carries it through to a surprisingly carbonated finish. Bitterness vanishes quickly as well. Not real complex but for the style, pretty good offering.

M - very clean and crisp for a "dark" beer. Carbonation is perhaps a bit high but all in all pretty well done.

O - not my favorite style, but I must admit that the Duck's offering is a pretty good schwartzbier. Flavor profile could be stronger and carbonation a bit lower, but very drinkable. With the low ABV, this could easily be a sessionable dark lager. Nice offering.
