On tap at the Moan and Dove in Amherst, served in a stein.
A: Black with some hints of brown showing through around the walls of the glass. Thick creamy off-white head.
S: Huge smell of toast, a good amount of roastiness and some coffee and dark chocolate.
T: Very robust flavors of toast from the outset, some nuttiness, a great deal of roasted malt flavor and rich semi-sweet dark chocolate. Finishes roasty and dry with a hint of a metallic taste.
M: Wonderful schwarzbier mouthfeel: A bit of a milky texture, but light in body, clean, and crisp at the same time. Low to moderate carbonation.
D: Drinkability is through the roof. Damn tasty and light in body. I wish I could drink it all night.
Notes: Schwarzbier is a style I have grown to love of late. This may be the best one I've had so far.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from the bottle into a pokal glass.
A bit murky looking color and appearance, but a real nice mahogany and reddish colored body, with some nice rising faint bubbles. Head is easily three fingers tall, foamy, full of swiss cheese retention and coffee cocoa brown in color. A little bit of soapy lacing. Neat looker.
Real nice clean aroma. Light powdered cocoa, hints of light cream and drip poured diner coffee. Some fresh ripping grain to match. This is very solid.
Palate comes with a lighter body than I expected, but more than delivers on the taste. Light amounts of milk chocolate and wafer like crispy malts. Small hints of milk and coffee finish, with a hints of clove like aroma. Slightly fruity interestingly, with a dry aftertaste and grain aromas that really last.
Overall a real clean and refreshing Schwarzbier, good one to know about, but probably enjoy Kostritzer a bit more.
