12oz can, sample from the brewery.

Yes, it is black ... great suds on top. Soft roasted malt nose and flavor, very malty with a subtle bready yeasty tone. Modest hopping, very easy drinking. Very much a black lager. This is the lagers answer to the drinkable stout or easy drinking porter. (291 characters)

Have had this several times when I have been visiting in north Louisiana. I cannot wait for this beer to make it over to Texas. It is a great example of a Schwarzbier. I think I like this favor and complexity of this better than the Shiner Black. As mentioned in a previous review if you like stouts and porters, then this is your all night beer (349 characters)

This beer is a great example of the schwarzbier style. It is not a session beer, but it is lighter in body than the taste profile's depth/complexity would suggest. It is an excellent alternative to a stout or porter, particularly during the summer. (252 characters)

Pours a nice dark black color with 1/4 inch head. Incredibly smooth, easy drinking beer. Nice combination of milk chocolate, sugar, and light roasted malt. This is one I could drink all night. (194 characters)

Pours dark brown, near black. It reminds me more of a dark lager for the slightly lighter body, but there's still the cocoa, coffee, toffee, and light roast of a schwarzbier. It needs to warm up for the flavors to come out, but it's highly drinkable cold or just cool. (268 characters)

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some roasted malts. Taste is light and mild, roasted malts, a hint of coffee. Feels light in the mouth and overall, while not a bad beer, it's not exactly going to overwhelm you with flavor, or otherwise. (285 characters)

Great Raft Reasonably Corrupt has an extremely thick, foamy, creamy, beige head, a dark brown appearance, and heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of cream, coffee (medium roast), mild chocolate, and brown bread crust. Taste is of sweetness, brown bread, some char, coffee, and a bit of chocolate. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Great Raft Reasonably Corrupt finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing.

3.75/5  rDev -3.6%

A: pours a deep brown and is nearly black with a finger and a half of dense light tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing
S: smells of roasted malts and a little bit of fruitiness. some chocolate and coffee as well
T: taste is a little nutty with some roasty malt flavors and coffee. swallow is more roasted malt and coffee with a little bit of cocoa powder.
M: light but not too light with soft carbonation and a slightly dry finish
O: This is a well made beer with good flavors and decent complexity. It isn't bad but I feel that htere are better representatives of the style. (596 characters)
