From a 12 oz bottle into my Sam Adams glass (thanks, guys!) this specimen is deep brown with reddish notes. Thin light brown head fades fairly quickly leaving a thin cap and a solid ring; no visible lacing. Nice nose up front with toated malt, yummy chocolate, and fresh, lightly burned toast. Wow! Great nose; makes me suddenly want a good BLT. On the palate, more burnt/toasted malt, molasses, slight hints of chocolate. There’s some malty sweetness in there mixed in for good measure. Dry, bitter finish. Mouth: A bit on the crisp side, and a bit thinner than I’d prefer.
Overall: You don’t see many schwarzbiers and this one could easily be mistaken for a porter. Great start ends up just pretty good, which means that I wouldn’t necessarily seek this one out again, though definitely would have another if the opportunity presented.
