2.93/5  rDev -17.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Dark brownish-red pour with a one finger head that fades pretty quickly with decent lacing. Earthy, malty nose with hints of caramel and a touch of dark fruit. Roasty malt and caramel are the stars in the taste. Hints of nuts, with a touch of smoke and chocolate. The malty sweetness dominates with very little bitterness to balance. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. The sweetness really hurts the drinkability for me. Living in Germany I've been lucky enough to sample quite a few Schwarzbiers. This is not a great interpretation of the style. It's not a bad beer, but nothing special either.

2.98/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

From "Thunder Mountain" comes this beer, apparently. Anyway, it pours a clear garnet-brown topped by a finger of glowing off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises buttery biscuit, very light roasted malts, and a hint of cracked wheat. The taste holds notes of cola, light maple syrup, lightly-toasted biscuit, and a thought of maduro-style tobacco. It's mostly cola on my tongue, frankly. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a kinda weak schwarz, one that seems too watered-down quality-wise for its own good, like it was trying for more of a mass appeal or something. Or it's just not that great...

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

A - A quad-like brown body with dark caramel hues. Thin carbonation ontop.

S - Lots of lager yeast in the nose and a bold honey sweetness. TOasted malts and a touch of minerals and metals.

T - Sweet toasty malts up front. Sweet honey with a balance against mineral water notes and metallic twang. Dark soft bread.

M - Lighter body with a fizzy carbonation. Sweet and quenching.

O - No complaints here, a decent schwarz.
