3.75/5 rDev -6.5%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a reddish black with a large light brown head. Smells of fruit notes in the dark roasted malt with very slight hints of chocolate. Tastes of dark roasted malt, slight caramel, and slight fruit taste, a little different. Beer is light bodied and sessionable, carbonation is perfect. Overall, an above average beer.

Pours a dark brown to black with a decent head at pour the disappates to a little foam around the rim. Smell is sweet and chocolately. Flavor is dry up front and dark malty through the middle but converts to a nicely balanced chocolate taste on the finish. They really eeked a lot out of this sessionable but flavorful brew!

Pours dark brown with a large foamy tan, with very nice retention and lacing. the aroma has dark roasted malt, cocoa, and some earth. The earth smell is almost like the inside of a cave.
Tastes like dark roasted malt, cocoa, and a little smoke. Somewhat sweet, with bitterness for balance provided by the dark roasted malt.
Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Very smooth and easy to drink. A nice beer for sure.

a very deep amber almost black in color with a finger of creme colored head. smells of roasted grains, chocolate, bready yeast. slightly fruity like cherries with lots of chocolate, and roasted grain flavor. has a nice tartness to it from the lager yeast. medium body, high carbonation.
a nice offering from this brewery.. they sure do like their dark beers!

Got this an an extra in a trade. Not my usual style, but it's pretty tasty.
Looks quite nice and black, lets some light around the edges. White fluffy head that leaves some very nice lacing.
Scents are gentle all around. Roast, coffee, chocolate malt.
Taste follows the nose with a clean flavor. A light chocolate malt appears on the finish.
Mouthfeel is very nice for the style and ABV.
Great to try this but I would not seek out again. Overall an enjoyable easy drinker.

Poured into a glass mug.
A: Nearly black (clear dark red-brown) with three-finger, off-white, creamy head that lasted a very long time. Good lacing.
S: Toasted malt and faint chocolate.
T: Light to moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Roasted malt and faint chocolate.
M: Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Slightly dry and crisp.
O: Good black lager, but I'm not sure it's much better than the Sam Adams black lager. It looks pretty awesome in the glass.

Poured into a tall pilsner glass, color is dark brown to black with some amber edging; head is tan and dense and frothy, light lacing.
Smell is a wonderful blend of mild toasted malt, roasted malt and chocolatey malts - delicious.
Taste is clean, a little sweeter than most schwarzbiers, maybe closer to a stout but very clean finishing and only a bit of light fruitiness, but no excessive bitterness - smooth. Flavors start out roasty, blend to chocolate and finish a little thin and clean.
Mouthfeel is nearly exceptional, a bit of roasted bitterness, but other than that exceptional clean flavors and lighter lingering sweetness. Carbonation is not excessive, light lingering bitterness
Overall, a great, tasty brew - great roast presence, nice sweet balance and great smooth finish
