Mahagony in color and only slightly transparent with a light tan head. Very interesting and complex nose. Pretty well rounded with a medium body. Caramel contributes to the generally sweet taste of the beer. Light bitterness in the finish.

Very nice Schwarzbier, great head leaving a nice lacy pattern on the glass, mild malty flavour, with a raisin overtone.
Mouthfeel was nice, let you know you are drinking a beer, a bit of a musty back of the mouth taste tho, other than that an excellent version of Black Beer

Color was a dark brown, with ruby and garnet hues. Loved it. Probably not the color of a Schwarzbier, but....I loved it! Small fine head, with some lacing action. Mild malty nose, some bitter chocolate present, and even hints of dark fruit. Middle of the road mouthfeel. Slight malt flavor to start, toasted/roasted malt characteristics present, a bit bitter.... slightly astringent finish, with a the hops presenting themselves. Nice bier!

4.35/5  rDev +15.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 11.2oz custom green bottle. Best before on the back label.

Appearance: Deep, woody brown in colour. Pours a massive creamy/foamy tan head with loads of stick and retention.

Smell: Malty, milky and caramel nose.

Taste: Light-bodied, crisp and refreshing. Hops hit the palate from the start with a sharp bite that segues into a complementary earthy roasted malt astringency. Faint raisin/grape. Metallic flavours fill the mouth, in tune with the overall sharpness of the beer and a tight, fizzy carbonation feel. Touch of chocolatey sweetness in the background, becoming more pronounced, rich and caramel-like as the beer warms -- "malty". Toasted flavours form and helps to finish things off, along with a dry-ish bready flavour.

Notes: An outstanding Schwarzbier/Dunkel. Balanced, tasty and an absolute treat for the taste buds. I highly recommend seeking this beer out.
