500ml Brown bottle poured into two Alt glasses: this beer is really dark, dead dark in fact, a huge light brown head topped off a good looking beer.

The aroma was of slightly smoked malts, coffee and dark chocolate also could be detected.

The flavours in the mouth followed the smells almost to the letter, roasted and toasted malts giving off those lovely chocolate and coffee tastes, again with a hint of smokiness.

Mouthfeel was a lot better than almost every other Schwarzbier I've had, being richer and thicker than the usual lager based brews normally found under this style.

Wasn't expecting such a good beer to be honest, glad I bought it. Easily the highest scoring beer of this style I've reviewed (this is the 12th).

A - Deep flat brown, with generous beige head.

S - Roasted malts, chocolate, charcoal and coffee.

T - Coffee and dark chocolate with some bitterness in the finish. Inviting taste.

M - Medium bodied. A touch too much carbonation for my liking.

D - I keep going back for more. Carbonation seems overpowering below 10 deg celcius.
