On draft at Brauhaus Schmitz on 1-16-2015.

A deep jet black unfiltered draft with thick tan head that persisted through the session. More flavorful than any other version so far, spicier with more complexity. Hop and malt balance is exceptional.

The colour is dark brown; the liquid is clear. It is way too bright for the style. The two finger head is airy and beige. No lacing occurs.

The smell got some notes of olicloth and plastics. Some roasted flavours.

Roasted flavours in the taste, as well as sweet candy-like notes. Medium bitterness and body. Smooth aftertaste with some lactose and crisp bread.

The carbonation is medium strong, the bubbles mid-sized.

A bit dull, although there is nothing wrong with this one. But it looks and tastes more like a dark Wienna lager than a schwartzbier.
