look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
