12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear dark brown color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, dark bread, smoke, light char, and roast/smokey earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark, roast, smoke, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, dark bread, smoke, light char, and roast/smokey earthiness. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, dark bread, and roast/smokey earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of dark, roast, smoke, and bready malt notes; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Very clean flavor and finish as well. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a damn nice schwarzbier style. All around great complexity and robustness of dark, roast, smoke, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
