4.13/5 rDev +2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Appearance- A one and a half finger head that turns into a foamy film at the end. Very translucent like dark brown color.
Smell- Only a hint of malt as well as hops, with malt being the dominate one.
Taste- The malt flavor was excellent with some hops in the middle to do some balancing, but then ended with the roasted malts and water.
Mouthfeel- Looks are deceicing, especially if you aren't familiar with schwarzbier. But something this dark is like a lager and can be consumed so easily. My palate was alight with a tasty roasted malt. Nothing overpowering though.
Drinkability- Excellent, I like anything dark in a beer, and this could turn into my regular beer of the day to drink when I want to forget the pain... just kidding. But definetly beckons the drinker to consume more.

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.
