I like this beer. I acknowledge that it is light for the style, but I personally prefer this to a more stylistically accurate version.

A: [2.75] Pours a reddish black. You can see through it even without back lighting. There was NO head at. It pours like flat Coke. The chubby little bottle lists ABV (5.4%) and the Best by date (01/25/15).

S: [2.50] I am trying really hard and getting almost nothing on the nose. Maybe really weak coffee.

T: [3.75] It tastes like a porter! I get roasted malts and little to no bitter. There are some slight charred wood flavors too. It is actually not bad - given the nose had nothing.

M: [3.00] The lack of head actually makes the mouthfeel seem a little more watery. The carbonation is a little too high too.

O: [3.25] Ironically the taste is the best thing this littel beer has going for it The appearance is pretty bad, no head or lacing at all. The nose is too weak to get anything. The taste was straightforward but pleasant. The mouthfeel was a little off too. I really like Unitas Baba - which is a 4% ABV Black Lager and it does a lot more than this one at 5.4%.

A fine Schwarzbier that could be confused with a traditional brew from Germany. The flavors are immediately quite noticeable.

In front the front, a light roasted malt. A hint of chocolate and cocoa and coffee. Some bitterness then onto a lager yeast drying in the back end.
