3.54/5 rDev -0.6%
Pours brown with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops, grain, caramel and bready malt and some black cherries. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of caramel malt, bread crust and herbal hops. Finish is long and herbal, semi-dry. Overall it is good brew, but taste more like Dunkel than Schwarz beer.

Enjoyed this at the windward tavern... Poured a dark rich mahogany color, and had a 2 finger cream colored head.
Smelled of some sweet malty notes, roasted grains and coffee I n the background. Tasted much like it smelled and it was quite enjoyable! Would drink this again and considering its so local, gotta love it!!!

THis schwarzbier has a nice looking color of rusty auburn copper.
The head formed was thin and small but dense and lingering. Well attenuated.
There is a slight roasted aroma on the nose. Also some sherry like or sour notes too.
In the back I pull out molasses and anise.
The taste is pretty dry and with a sour or sherry taste to accompany the maltiness. Very light hints of roast gives the beer some add depth.
I tried looking for thier summer rental this year, I'm glad to get the winter rental.

12oz bottle in a nonic pint glass.
A- Mahogany, black cherry color. Off-white head, 1/2-finger, tapers to a film and leaves some decent lacing.
S- Rich roasted malts and dark chocolate. Touches of caramel, sweetness, and alcohol. Very clean.
T- Dark roasted malts, bitter chocolate. Some dark fruit on the finish.
M-Tingly with medium body. Drinkable and smooth. No hops.
O- Not bad. A few more IBUs might cut the sweets.

A - Dark brown pour with some webs of lacing. Foam retention is minimal. Very little carbonation is noted.
S - Scents of sweet malt, light grains, and what smells like black licorice. However there is very little that stands out.
T - Light drinking beer that is true to the style. Has a sweetness that keeps it interesting, but not much in terms of complexity. I'd like either more of a hop presence or a bit more complexity. Still, not too shabby.
M - Light beer that at times feels a bit watery. Has a refreshing feel to it; a good beer with food. Finish leaves with a mild amount of sugary sweetness.
O - I appreciate the attempt at this style, as there aren't enough good ones domestically. But Winter Rental doesn't have enough to keep me coming back. Would work for those that like the sweetness of a doppelbock without the thick feel.
