From an undated 12 oz can purchased in MI last month. Served in a snifter. Pours clear, dark red-brown color, but nearly black in the glass. The medium-size tan head soon reduces to a ring but leaves a coat lacing upon tilting.
S: Lightly sweet with medium roast malts and minimal dark roasted grains. Improves with warming.
T: Sweet upfront but more balanced by the finish. Less dark roasted malt flavor than expected, and probably less than any schwarzbier I've come across. Very lightly smoky with a hint of spicy hops.
M: Light carbonation; medium-light body.
O: Somewhat light American Schwarzbier. As the brewer says, "Don't let its looks deceive you."
