On tap at the Draught House.
The beer pours a dark brown to black color with an off-white head. The aroma is very nice. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt notes, with a little bit of dark fruit. It smells quite a bit like a nice, roasted porter.
The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of dark roasted malt with some bitterness from the malt and chocolate notes. There is also a little bit of nuttyness in the flavor. There is a ton of flavor packed into this lower alcohol beer.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
Hopefully this beer is canned because I could drink this all day long.

A decent sized light brown head settles into a nice lacing above a dark red like a wine but even darker clear colored beer.
A very light aroma consisting of dark roasted caramel to coffee like malts.
Dark caramel roasted coffee and dark chocolate malts taste that is quite pleasant and enjoyable.
A dryish almost chalk like, but to a much lesser degree, dry aftertaste on this medium to medium/full bodied beer.
This beer is advertized as a German-Style Schwarz but I think it's pretty close to a lot of porter and stouts I've tried with the dark coffees and dark chocolate aspects. A pretty tasty drink.

Thanks Chris for sharing this beer today!
Live review, served in a tulip glass.
Black with a thin skim, earthy roast aroma and flavor. Thin ring ofthe edges, reddish copper color in the light. Dry and roasty aroma. Dry bitter flavor, some woody smokiness, with traces lingering nicely in the aftertaste. Dry and savory, would pick this up if I saw it, it's a nice Schwarzbier.
