Poured into a jar from a pint can.

A- Black Coca-Cola color, along with dark ruby red highlights; slightly translucent when held to light; 1 finger tan-cream head; retention was okay. Head eventually turned into a thin bubbly surface. A little bit of lace left on the glass.

S-Grains, dark malt, mocha, and a little hop aroma.

T-Mocha, black chocolate, and black licorice. The aftertaste was dry and bitter, which is what I like in my schwarzbiers. It was sweet up front and bitter in the back. A little metallic at times, but it didn't wreck the whole experience. The beer overall was easy to drink and quite smooth.

M-On the lighter side, which made it sessionable. Moderate amount of carbonation. A creamy feel once the beer warmed a bit. It really showed that it's a lager.

Overall, I'd drink this again. I really thought it was quite mellow and easy to drink. It is a great substitute for those who like dark beers, but have yet to develop their tastes for strong dark beers. I love stouts and porters, so I am happy to have this schwarzbier imported from Germany into China. To find a stout or porter in Northeast China would be a rare find, so this one does the trick. Cheers!
