When I hit my local grocery store, this always ends up in my mix a six.

This was an enjoyable schwarzbier. My one complaint is that along with the roastiness in the flavor was a touch of honey which I found to be out of place.

Poured from can into porter glass. Newbie reviewer, but have happily had this beer several times before. A few extra O points for great label and name.
Look: pours dark root beer color, black in glass with ruby root beer lighted at narrow bottom. Nice crowning two-finger taupe head. Head starts pockmarking quickly, collapses to rough 1/4 inch head before drinking. Dissipates on glass (lace?) while drinking.
Smell: coffee, hops, more than a hint of pee.
Taste: hard to ID any one taste, hops and coffee I guess, some sassafras in second half, but it is good, smooth yet lively, a trace of bitterness, which stays on roof of mouth.
Feel: medium body, creamy
Overall: one of my favorite beers, probably sessionable if the bitter aftertaste doesn't build up. Not a problem at all with one beer.

this beer is blacker than dikembe mutombo. it's a little watery but tasty, smooth dark lager. this one and full sails ''session black'' are amongst the top as far as black lagers go for me.
