Decided to give it a shot, no real expectations for this one. Got it for free at Morgans Liquor store as part of a promotion.
A&S: Pours about a finger of creamy tan head, not a ton of retention, but not awful. The beer has a medium black coloration. Light grains and bitter hop components, with some smokiness thrown in there.
T&M: Really not bad. Pretty large hop component. Smokey, lightly malted, milk chocolate also present in the taste. Light body, but not super crisp, more smooth than I expected. Medium high carbonation, but not sharp.
Overall: I'm not too familiar with this style (Schwarzbier), however this beer seems to fit for the most part. Pretty refreshing and not completely flavorless. Opposed to the season suggestions for this style (winter), I think this beer goes great on a warm early summer night.

App: Very dark, more so than say a bock. As dark as a stout without that black hole characteristic. One finger, dark tan head that dissipates quickly leaving very little lacing.
Smell: Chocolatey nose very present and predominant. Medium bouquet, and a nose that is very true to style. Hops disguised under significant malt presence, but not absent entirely. Pretty mellow smell.
Taste: Very deep and interesting taste. Lots of malt flavors battling one another without a decisive victor. Chocolate malts dominate with some roastiness bringing up the rear. Caramelized flavors intertwined with a mild woodiness. Tastes a lot like a porter without the heavy bodied lingering flavors. Very clean with a slight lingering sweetness. Mild hops bite that is noted but subtle enough to let the malts perform center stage. Slight lingering sourness that harmonizes with the brews sweetness.
Mouth: Carbonation light for a lager which really allows the creaminess of the malts to bloom on your tongue. Light bodied considering its strong malt presence.
