A solid schwarzbier. Lots of coffee and roasted notes. Smooth and crisp mouthfeel. A quintessential dark lager from a brewpub. Can't wait to try more of their offerings.

On tap at the Atlanta brewpub. Not a favored style.

Look: clear but near blck body with an off-white head that has limited retention.

Aroma: mild but attractive with more toffee than expected.

Flavor: follows the aroma but with ore dark roasted malts showinng.

Mouthfeel: light-medium body and medium-light carbonation. very smooth.

Overall: mild and clean.
