just a solid black lager available in 16oz cans for a great price.

big fluffy head and nice lacing.

appealing roasty nose that the taste follows with roasted malt flavors balanced by a smooth hop presence. there is a touch of sweetness to start and drys nicely in the finish making this one dangerously quaffable.

would be a great beer for my keggerator because its full of flavor but very approachable fo most all beer drinkers

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 4C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L507.05.2014L. AROMA: soft sweet malty background with coffe-like notes. clean lager profile. APPEARANCE: very dark brown color with ruby highlights. opaque. thin tanned head with below average retention. TASTE: light sweet malty flavour with light roasted notes that linger into the finish. low bitterness. almost absent hop flavours. clean lager profile. PALATE: low body. medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a schwarzbier a bit on the watery side but with ok balance between sweet and roasted malts.
