4.03/5 rDev +8.6%
Poured into a stange.
4.0 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy tan head. Retention is good and plenty of lacing is left.
4.25 S: Decidedly grainy - this reminds me of gathering up the grains needed for my RIS. There's also a ton of chocolate, which reminds me of the mash of that same brew. Plenty of roastiness as well. Caramel and molasses to round this off.
4.0 T: Roasty foremost, but chocolatety enough to balance it out. Grainy with layers of caramel and the slightest hint of ash. Very tasty and every sip is as good as the last.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth.
4.0 D: Really good beer. Solid all around. Pick it up.

This is a smoked schwarzbier, so it really is a rauchbier. Pours to a beige head that lasts, not much lacing. Aroma is smoky, roasty and malty. Nos fruity esters to get in the way because it is a clean, steely lager. Flavor is a delicious blend of smoke, coffee, chocolate and a spicy, smoky bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium with a warming sensation. Overall, a very tasty but lightly smoked rauchbier. Not really a schwarz. But damn good!

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a dark brown color with a two finger brown colored head. The head fades rather fast to leave a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell-The aroma is sweet of caramel and has a nice backbone of roasted malt and a touch of smoke.
Taste- The taste begins with some roasted malt and some sweet caramel upfront. As the flavors advance, some flavors of coffee and a bit more roastedness come to the tongue with the dwindling of some of the caramel. A toffee like sweetness replaces the caramel though, maintaining the sweetness of the brew. In the end a light smokiness comes to the tongue leaving a pleasant sweet and roasted flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is average to light with a carbonation level that is on the average side. A slightly thicker body may have been better for the roasted flavors of the brew, although the carbonation level was rather fitting for the drinkability and strength of the beer.
Overall- A rather decent black lager with a decent flavor and mix between sweet and malt. Rather easy drinking overall.
