4.05/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark brown with hints of red and a mocha head. The beer creates some nice lacing with a head that retains. The smell is of very faint roasted malts.

It has a very smooth roasted light coffee taste with a hint of sweetness. The hops and most of the flavor appear in the immediate aftertaste. The aftertaste has a light hop bite with dark chocolate.

This beer is very smooth with its medium carbonation and almost undetectable alcohol. Not too sweet or bitter, very nice.

Schwarzbier is one of my favorites as it has the drinkability of a session beer with more flavor. This is one of the better Schwarzbiers I've had.
