For a schwarzbier...wheres the flavor? I can't make out any thing special or descriptive. Low grain front. Low hop finish. Drinking a beer tea. Drink it if you want something easy and unoffensive.

The beer had strong taste and smell after over-roasted malt. Rough, somewhat acidic taste, burnt smell. Barely drinkable. I only had it once but I'm not giving it another chance. This is something the brewer has to spot and it can't be sold like that.

-dark, dark, yet clear pour from bottle. Very little visible carbonation, but a fine effervescence is present. The aroma and flavors are thin, but pleasant. They include toasty, bready malt and a hint of coffee. The malt profile is not rich and hop influence is almost absent. I have had these for years after soccer matches (favored by certain opponents). The brew is very consistent.

Can shared by Dan tonight, thanks!
Dark brown with a smallish off white head. Caramel and light chocolate notes against some bready earthy hops. Not horrible.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a very dark mahogany brown with little light transmission, and a half finger, light brown head that dissipates slowly to patches, leaving light lacing. Aroma of mild sweet toasted malt, nuts and a hint of cocoa. Flavor is light toasted malt with a hint of char, nuts, cocoa, slight dry mineral, especially in the finish, which has a mild hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. A pleasant light schwarzbier with suggestions of a quite nice toasted malt component. Too light flavored to really get the full benefit of the malt. Starts semi-sweet and finishes drier, with a somewhat stark mild char and hop finish, probably due to the light body. Another light bodied beer that hints at something bigger. Mild and pleasant, but nothing exciting. This version at 4.4%, so perhaps a bit more robust than the older one.
