4.1/5 rDev +17.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Purchased single bottle from Martignetti's
Appearance = extremely dark brown, nearly jet black. Minimal head but decent retention of thin layer of milky brown film. Lacing is ok.
Smell = Dark roasted malts. A bit of whisky like sourness. Smells similar to the other Schawzbiers I've tried.
Taste = Good flavor actually and better than I anticipated. A very mild sweetness in the aftertaste which leads to a pleasant, harmonious overall tasting experience. Not much hops. Good drinkability.Malt is well flavored, robust and fresh tasting.
Overall = some people might be turned off by the sweetness but I really liked it. This is a very agreeable beer. I was very impressed and would buy it again.

3.49/5 rDev +0.3%

Opaque deep brown, garnet highlights, with a frothy cappuccino head that lingers as a ring.
Nutty, lightly caramelized and toasted malt aroma, with a taste that's sweeter than expected. More caramel than nuts, and minimal roast. There's a slight metallic note. Carbonation is higher than I'd prefer, and it lacks roast for the style.

Black from afar, but a hold to the light reveals clearer ruby at the edges. A head the color and consistency of latte foam.
Figgy. Up front, it's all fruit. Bitter and raisiny, like reduced wine. Earthy hop character, a touch of cocoa powder and toasted wheat bread. Very balanced in the finish, with just a touch of raisiny tang on the sides of the tongue. Clean and light. Brown sugar finish. Reminds of a Belgian Dubbel, almost.
Soft body, cotton balls, light. Moderate, prickly carbonation. Clears the palate after each sip, a street sweeper washing it away. Very easy to drink.
Not incredibly complex, but very drinkable. Would be good at a soccer match on a hot Brazilian day.
Serving type: on-tap
