4.5/5 rDev +19.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
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.

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.
