"made in the style of German Schwarzbier (black beer). Very dark brown to almost black in colour, it has a smooth roasted malt character with a hint of chocolate."

330ml bottle served in a glass at Town Ball near the brewery in Christchurch

Looks like, and seems to be a scharzbier.

Feel: Light body with high (too high) carbonation. A bit fizzy.

Aroma: weak; more hops than expected.

The flavor is weak but with a tad more hops than in a standard schwarzbier. Ignoring style, the balance is OK. Very mildly bitter aftertaste.
