12oz bottle, best by December 2012. Served at around 45F.
Pours dark brown to black with a two finger light brown head that recedes to a light cap and leaves some spots and sheets of lacing behind.
Aroma starts metallic and acidic when cold, as it warms it opens up a lot, offering up some chocolate, caramel and roasted malt notes. Good strength.
Flavor is chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, much nicer than aroma. Some cola-like qualities. Moderate sweetness, minimal alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little sticky, good carbonation.
Pretty good Schwarzbier.
