pours cola black, chocolate head, dissipates quickly.
dark chocolate and roasted malts, light light citrus twist.
very roasty and chocolate through out. bitterness with a slight complimenting backbone. light citrus hops.
smooth with a mild carbonation, micro bubbles add body. light and easy.
pretty good, i like it.

3.6/5 rDev -3.5%
Appearance: Another impressive Austin Beerworks pour, with the clear chestnut colored liquid presenting several fingers of ecru foam; both the retention and the lacing were noticable
Smell: Brown bread and nutskins, with hints of powdered chocolate and coffee
Taste: Brown bread with a bit of acidity and nutskin bitterness developing; in the mid-palate, the powdered chocolate and coffee arrive; chalky and dry, in the finish
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: I am a bit disappointed in this beer, as the finish fails to hold the promise of the front end; not bad, but not something I would be inclined to re-visit
Thanks, Phoenix2443, for the opportunity

deep brown pour with a finger of tan head which dissipated slowly. smells of chocolate, roasted grains, nutty. the taste is much better than the smell. lots of dark roasted grains are present, dark chocolate, sweet malty profile with a roasty essence throughout.. really nice. medium body with moderate carbonation and a creamy feel.
a nice sweet yet dark schwarzbier. very good in the flavor department with a really nice mouthfeel.
