3.45/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A beer on the pour a very deep garnet with a modest light chocolate head that is frothy in texture and the lace a fine and clinging sheet to coat the glass. Nose malt, caramel, lightly toasted grains, front is malt and ambrosial the top is skinny. Finish is purposefully carbonated, minor league on the hops, dry aftertaste, overall the flavors improve a bit after resting, but all in all just an average beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very dark brown/black robe capped by a thin & creamy light tan head that holds OK, and then drops to a thin collar and surface covering. The aroma offers a very nice ceral-like maltiness with notes of light caramel, toffee and some very soft background roastiness. The body is light/medium with an exceptionally fine and mild carbonation that's smooth and creamy in the mouth. The flavor reflects the maltiness found in the aroma: mild and softly caramel/cocoa-ish with a cereal-like character. There's also some very light apple-like fruitiness but it's generally masked by the maltiness. It's very well balanced considering the delicate nature of the malt. The bitterness is barely noticeable up-front, and appears only minimally in the finish along with some residual maltiness and a touch of roasted character (clearly no roasted barley is used, but rather deeply kilned malts as there is no acrid character). This beer is quite one-sided, but the malt flavor that's there is very nice and although it has some dark malt character it's actually quite light and refreshing. Very well done.

I liked this better than the Blackened Voodoo Schwarzbier because it was not as overly carbonated. Black color and decent head/lacing. I can't see dropping $3.50 to add this to my bathwater though. Usually you take a bath to get rid of the beer smell, not vice versa. Fairly sweet malty maple flavor with coffee notes. I'd have this one again.

Very dark beer. Big bubbled tan head quickly dissipates to almost nothing. Big roasty sweet aroma. Falvor is toffee, burnt malt and a hint of smoke. Some raisin flavor as it warms. There's that lager taste to it, but it's almost completely covered up by the strong malty flavors. Hops are very low in the profile.

Pours a slightly cloudy brown color, with a huge rocky tan head. On the nose are aromas of caramel malt.
On the palate it is nicely sweet, caramel malts, hints of coffee flavor, toasted grains, tiny chocolate notes and lightly hopped. Improves well after warming a bit. I’m becoming a big fan of the Schwarzbiers! ….good stuff…

Ah, Schwarzbiers...a really charged bottle, lots of pillowy foam that holds rocky shapes well. Cloudy and very dark brown, a few chunks. Smell is sweet with a touch of cranberry, pretty nice. Taste is unusual, a hard-to-describe malt and a touch of berry but with good hops too. Medium-bodied to me, but surprisingly light on the tongue. Malts taste "roastier" as it warms up...very nice beer here, finishes well in the swallow, too...
