3.28/5 rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Aroma: Lager yeast with slight sulfur. Very faint hints of roasted grains.
Appearance: Very dark brown, a rocky head that collapses quickly, but the small amount of foam is very clingy. Garnet highlights.
Flavor: clean roasted malt with very faint coffee flavor. The flavor is quite dry and finishes quickly with low bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-low carbonation, thin body
Overall Impression: Not quite a schwarzbier, more like thin stout fermented with lager yeast.
Comments: Dry and very drinkable this beer is a good introduction to the dark side for regular lager drinkers when they want to try the deep end of the pool.
Serving type: bottle

poured from a ~15oz can into a pint glass.
A: Thick beige head that falls slowly and clings to the glass. Nice black color, clear and dark brown along the edges.
S: Bread, very light roast, a little earthy.
T: Smooth malty start, a surprisingly strong bitter kick which lingers. Pretty simple.
M: Light, smooth, creamy carbonation.
O: Nice clean black lager. Easy drinking with a light roasted character and smooth mouth.
Serving type: can
