3.83/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is very dark brown with red hues, a thin beige head and very fine carbonation.

Smells fruity and caramelly, with a good hoppy note, a touch of saltiness and some roasted tones; slightly tart too.

The flavor is both sweet/fruity and dryish bitter and has a slightly cloying finish. Bitter and roasted after-taste. Hops are in the background constantly. A little vanilla is detectible too.

Body is quite full with a sticky mouthfeel. Alcohol hits hard.

I never had a Schwarzbier, but this Schwarzbock seems like a crossover between a Doppelbock and a stout/porter to me.

Poured a short, dense, tan head that rested on the dark black beer. Dry aroma of darkly roasted malt and a hint of licorice. Flavor is mildly sweet and a mix of black malt, cola, and molasses. Crisp, finely carbonated body. Not like most Schwarzbiers. It's more like a dry stout then anything else. I would definitely recommend giving it a try if you have the chance.

This beer has a peculiar name; Schwarz Bock and which is a cross-over of a Schwarz and a Bock.

Appearance is red brown with a very bog-bubbled head and some light carbonation.

Smell is burned molasses with some maple syrup and dark woody notes. There are some caramellic notes but these are not sweet, more like fresh boiled caramel. There is a tartness that seems to take the emphasis of the roastness and balances the smell.

Taste is strongly maltbitter with burned chocolate and black malt. The alcohol is warming and body is a little too thin. The bitterness is strong and must be caused by the roast and hopbitterness. The aftertaste is dry, not sweet and burned. This is much like a cross-over between Schwarz and a Doppelbock and nothing I have tasted before.
