4.78/5 rDev +18.6%
Black with a plentiful fine foam head. Lots of glass sticking lace. Both the aroma and taste are a strong and well balanced combination of roasted malt and piney c-hops. Neither overpowers the other. Medium bodied and light carbonation, one of the best bottled beers I can recall.

Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store, poured into an Abandon Brewing tulip.
Pours dark black with a 2 inch head fluffy head that recedes quickly, to a film on top of the beer. Leaves sheets of lacing down the glass.
Strong aromas of resinous pine and roasted malt. I could keep my nose in this forever, seriously baller.
The flavor is great- on one sip you'll get dank, earthy, resinous pine sap and needles, with mild citrus on the front end, with dark roasted, almost burnt malt, coffee grounds, and smokey ash on the back end, then the next sip the dark malt will be up front with the hops in the back. Very interesting drinking experience.
Full creamy body, medium to thick mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Lingering bitterness stays in the back of your throat throughout. No present alcohol taste.
Another winner from Jack's Abby. It's getting to be where I can buy anything from them and expect it to be great.

Fresh, and poured into a Sam Adams glass.
What a spectacular pour. Dark, dark- almost black. Pillowy off-white head. Lacing just sticks and sticks. Beautiful.
Aroma is unexpectedly coffee-forward. Smells like a Pacific Northwest coffee house, with just a touch of wood and roastiness. Maybe a bit of black tea as well. When I close my eyes I could convince myself I'm back in a rustic coffee joint in Seattle. Wonderful stuff.
Great flavor here as well. There's a bit less coffee than the aroma, but a big dose of sweetness and possible lactose adds some richness and complexity. It's dry and bitter on the finish, but not earthy. Just a sweet, almost lemon-rind finish.
Nice mouthfeel- dry, but compatible with the flavors.
Man, I love this beer. I really have no idea what a schwarzbier is supposed to taste like. All I know is this beer is delicious.

Review taken from notes. Poured into my Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a clear deep brown almost black that can't be seen through. Atop was a nice half finger mocha head that leaves heavy clouding and light side lacing.
S - Very nice. Good earthy, smokey chocolate with rich roasted malts. There is a light coffee aroma as well as some light floral hops.
T - Wow this is rich. Smokey chocolates with good roasted malts. Very earthy with light coffee. There is a good bitter finish and aftertaste that is slightly piny. Wow.
M - Light mouthfeel. Great carbonation, sharp and crisp. For the ABV this is crazy drinkable.
O - Overall this is an excellent lager. Really delicious with wonderful aromas. Another great lager by Jack's Abby.
