look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pretty nice looking beer,, kinda reddish-dark brown in color, fairly clear but still dark enough to where it's hard to see very far through it, with a nice light brown creamy head that lasted a bit and left sheets of lace.

Aroma and flavors are somewhat malty, with a slightly detectable roastiness, but not bitter astringent roasts like a stout, and maybe a touch of bread and dark fruit, Not a lot of hops, but a slight sweetness comes through.

Somewhat brown-ale like overall, but lighter in body, which is more lager-like.and just a little thin.

Overall it's not too far off the mark for the style, although not outstanding.

A: Pours dark brown with a big fluffy light brown head. Head fades slowly with wonderful retention. Solid, heavy walls of lacing left behind.

S: Nice toasted malt, pretzel-like. Creamy milk chocolate mixes in. Surprisingly nice.

T: Mild sweet and creamy chocolate up front. Sweetness runs out into a toasted malt finish with bittersweet chocolate. Dry in the finish - well attenuated.

M: Very smooth, not watery at all.

O: A simple but tasty schwarzbier. Nice toasted malt and chocolate flavors meld and balance nicely.
