Poured from a 1.9 oz flip top bottle, into a Tall weisse glass.

Beautiful dark brown with a creamy tan two finger head, excellent retention, excellent lacing

Malty aroma, hit of chocolate

Taste almost porter like, very little hop, but nice robust malty flavor,

Very smooth mouthfeel, little to no alcohol, could drink this all night, until it was nap time. Carbonation is perfect, creates the head, but drinks very smooth

Overall, this is exactly what the elders in this application say it is, an Outstanding Schwartzbier!

Schwarzbier pours a very dark almost black color with a nice large lacing head. There is a rich smokey malt aroma with small hints of chocolate. The taste has a very rich thick and creamy malt flavor, good peated flavors. The body is rather watery, but still some nice flavors. Overall a very flavorful beer, the only knock is the watery body.

Appearance: Pours with a decadent light brown head of about three fingers. The head settled in but was present while drinking. Random lacing left behind. There is some dark brown color along the edges of the glass but primarily sits jet black. Active carbonation is low.

Smell: Black licorice and toffee sweetness greets the drinker. Molasses lightly compliments dark roasted malts on the body. The yeast profile comes off with some butterscotch and airy bread.

Taste: Toffee, brown sugar, and black licorice open up right away. The body is filled with lightly roasted malts and some balanced dry coffee grounds. Nothing overpowering, very balanced and extremely drinkable. Some amber malt notes and caramel picked up on the back end.

Mouthfeel: Sweet front, very drinkable yet roasted malts on the body. The finish has a touch of dryness which keeps you reaching for another drink. Active carbonation is on the lower side but works here.

Overall: Very well done brew. Noticeable roasted malt notes are kept in check yet still very prevalent. Running caramel, licorice sweetness throughout provides lighter tones for the palate. An affordable bottle that is a great benchmark for the style.
