served on-tap @ Alcove, Tuscaloosa, AL, into a mason jar

Pours the color of dark mud, the color of rye bread crusts but maybe one shade darker. Not much head, but that's the work of the bartender. It looks very light in the glass, which is style appropriate.

Lost Highway smells mostly of Cocoa Puffs and a watered-down cup of Maxwell House. Maybe a bowl of Cocoa Puffs with Maxwell House poured in it instead of milk. But not in a strong way; this beer struggles to give off much by way of aroma. It's those brown malts and no real yeast aromas. Not bad, just not at all exciting.

It finds some more to say on the palate, thankfully. Light coffee flavor right up front transitions to clean lager yeast flavor. The finish is, unexpectedly, fruity. Specifically it finishes with a taste of blackberries. Blackberry seeds, to be more precise.

The mouthfeel is pretty watery. I'm not looking for thickness in a lager like this but I am looking for a discernible body. It comes close to disappearing on your tongue. Overall, this is a pretty solid Schwarzbier. It's fresh and local, and that is usually good enough to get me to order a beer. (1,141 characters)

A really well done and satisfying black lager . . . Schwarzbier. (64 characters)

Having the lost highway at the pie factory in Florance, AL. The beer pours a slightly hazy dark with very thin head that is not leaving a lace. The scent is a very mild roast corn. The taste is malt base with slight sweet roasted maize flare. The m outhfeel is lighter in body with decent carbonation. Overall a nice session beer. (330 characters)

Thanks to Jim for this one!

Small amount of tan foam when poured, fades away quickly to nothing.
Molasses aroma with a light sweetness.

Taste is also lightly sweet with molasses, a slightly odd medicinal note as well.
Slightly roasty, the odd note seems to dominate unfortunately. Light bodied, seems a little long in the tooth. Overall it's hard to tell if this was once a good beer or not. Not dry or roasty enough for the style. (433 characters)

Pours a dark black lighted headed brew. The smell is a toasty light not burnt malt smell. The mouthfeel is light and reminiscent of a stout even though it is a stout. It is the best schwarzbier I have ever had. It is light enough to drink when outside in the heat. It is also a great brew for the guy looking for a fall back brew when they cannot find their favorite dark brew. For Porter lovers this brew is perfect for you. This is a great brew in the heat or in the winter. Awesome brew and a great local surprise. (517 characters)

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into an Altamont glass.

Shiny black. Opaque with no head.
It smells sweet and wheaty, tinged with fruit. No roast.
Intriguing. It doesn't taste very schwarzbier-y. Very little discernible roast. It's mostly a cheesy (cask ale-like), sweet (kölsch-y/lager-y), chewy sort of beer. Complex, but uninteresting. (363 characters)

Poured into a tulip glass with little to no head. Look is nice, very dark like cola. Mouthfeel is smooth and light with excellent carbonation. Tastes like Nicely roasted malts. Good nutty sweet taste. Overall it's very enjoyable. Good job yellowhammer! (252 characters)
