I had this on-tap in a Pilsner glass at the Rock Bottom in Seattle.

Appearance: rich deep dark brown with maybe a touch of haze and a thin layer of frothy tan foam. Not too bad!

Smell: rather roasty malt character, which I like. However, it's a bit light in intensity.

Taste: roasty right up front, like in the aroma. It had a really good dry stout quality combined with a lager base -- it really works for me. Simple, but well-composed.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a very good carbonation and satisfying creaminess. I really like it.

Overall: a schwarzbier that really hits the spot. It's on the roaster side for the style, but I like that. Kudos!

On draft at the brewery in Bethesda.

Deep and chocolaty like a rich porter but lighter.

Beer on draft at the Bethesda MD location. Beer is dark brown but clear at the corners with a tan head, thin, some lacing, moderate carbonation, looks fine.

Aroma is light, a little roast, mild yeast.

Beer is smooth, medium in body with a light bitterness on the backend of the beer. Decent little schwartz, a little too much roast for me for the style but overall a decent dark lager.

Jet black, with small windows of light getting through the glass' bottom, under a very nice, creamy tan head.
Mellow, roasty nose, hints of cocoa.
chocolate is all over the taste, though, dripping on the palate, flavor is smooth, creamy, delicious. Medium bodied, genteel finish, ...so flavorful, you'd swear it was a porter. Very good one, of the more satisfying beers I've had here.
