a lighter body schwarzbier with a nice bitterness. pours is like a nice german lager with a off chocolate head. nose of mild straw and apple and maltose. very lightly roasted. palate is bright. crisp on the tongue with a carbonation that constricts a bit and a bitterness of hop that sits nicely with the hops. good but i expected bit more chocolate and 'dark qualities'.

Pours black into a dimpled mug. Small, one finger beige head that reduced to a thin film on the beer. Not much lacing.

Aroma is quite malty more than anything else. Hints of coffee and bitter chocolate come through.

Similar to the aroma the taste is driven by the malt profile. Some sweet chocolate and coffee are there with hops in the background. The finish is slightly bitter. Good balance to this brew.

Medium bodied and a pretty soft carbonaton.

Quite drinkable, great for the cold wintertime
