Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque black in the glass with a fine one finger light brown head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, coffee, a hint of dark fruit. Flavor is dry, dark toasted malt with a hint of char, mild dark chocolate and coffee; finishes with a light grass hops bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A quite nicely done schwarzbier, hitting all the right notes with perhaps a bit more charry toastiness than most, which is nice. Full flavored for a 4% beer, impressive. I wouldn't mind tasting an imperial version of this one, but this delivers what it promises for a smaller version of the style. Well done.

Baba the Logger

In days of yore, when asked of your
Parents many chores, to have done for
The makings of a taking
For egg-bakings and tasteful shakings
Upon the maiden's floor.

And who did taste but he, while lost
Turnt amidst a blurring moss
When once did he walk, a man of log
Who longed as he strode a waking bog.
With a great big grin, strolling a muck-strewn aisle.

Baba the Logger, who once did offer
His right wife proper
With iron and leather, a hunk of his leg
While whispers echoed face to face.
The mirthful intent did wander.

Thick dark white head. Has a nice dark look. Has a roasted smell. Can taste roasted malts along with hops. Tastes a bit watered down. Would like for it to have more flavor.
