Picked up a bomber of this after sampling it at the brewery's tasting room during the 9th annual German pub crawl. Tasting room/store info: http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/30121/?view=ratings&ba=emerge077

It made a solid impression then, and I wanted to take some time to sit down with it and review.
Dig the Spaceballs reference...

Into a Begyle tulip it pours a dark chestnut brown with a finger of sticky tan foam on the surface. After the first sip, there's still good coverage and patterns of drippy lace all around the glass. Foam has a creamy surface texture

Aroma is softly roasty, some lightly charred malt and dry tobacco notes.

Flavor is more up front with the roastiness, along with an ample dry bitterness that lingers into the aftertaste. Medium bodied and smooth, fairly chewy. Overall a very nice local Schwarzbier, a little bigger and slightly more bitter than most. Good stuff.
