3.69/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
22 ounce bottle - $8.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Bottled on: 10/22/13.
Appearance: Pours a near (very near) black body with just under an inch of sandy beige foam.
Smell: Chilled coffee and less-than-sweet chocolate wrapped in a thin layer of clean, worksafe smokiness. Ashen grains. Bruised grapes.
Taste: Roast, baker's chocolate, and a subtle rye quality. Coffee-toned. A little sweet present, but, not overly so. Pinch of ashes (a bit smokey). Faint licorice. Grape-y dark fruitiness. Scant hop character but some light bitterness showing. Semi-dry, roasty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth, soft texture.
Overall: Being notably fuller in all its regards it is not exactly a classic, traditional schwartz. Still, it's a reasonably nice beer. Can't we just like nice beers?
Serving type: bottle
