Pours near-black with ruby-brown highlights. The cocoa-colored head has good retention and alright lacing.
The smell and taste is very reminiscent of a lighter stout than I was expecting (this is my first Schwarzbier). Coffee, some chocolate, roasted and floral characteristics come through. Bitterness and sweetness play off of each other nicely. The finish is sweet. Medium-light body.
This is a pretty tasty beer. I could definitely enjoy a few of these in a sitting.
