Black color. Not much head. A slight coffee and chocolate aroma. Dry malt and a grainy, woody flavor like their Oktoberfest had. Maybe all their beers taste this way. I’m underwhelmed by this one.

Can labeled as 6.0% ABV and 25 IBUs; I liked this beer except for the mouthfeel which was much too thin for the style

Jet black beer with a tan head that leaves no lacing. The aroma is pure coffee with some toasted malts and a tiny bit of cocoa. The taste is tangy with coffee and a light creamy sweetness. It tastes quite like a porter. This is a decent beer that has a good flavor.

Enjoyed from the tall boy can in a snifter. This nice schwarz pours a deep blackish brown with a moderate head of off white foam that settles to a thick ring, very light small pool, and light lacing. Nose features subtle cocoa and roasted malts with a touch of grains. Flavors lightly exceed the nose with cocoa and light coffee notes on all sides, grain notes hit on the sides and back with a touch of caramel malt. Decent mouth feel, medium carbonation, and a lightly bitter cocoa and bitter malt aftertaste. Overall it is decent, but nowhere near as good as the fest beer they once brewed.

tap at the brewery

Pours an opaque black, light tan film for a head.

Smells of smokey and woody elements.

Flavor is smokey, biscuit malts and a woody dry finish.

Thin body with a sting of carbonation on the tongue.

Seeing as this isn't the most common style even at German beer breweries, it's nice to see this as a standard on rotation. It's pretty decent, but a tad watery in the flavor and body. Overall worth a try for fans of the style.

Poured from a tallboy can into a shaker pint, the beer pours an almost black color, with a filmy halo of off-white head. Nose of roasted coffee bitterness, with hints of chocolate, and not much else. Flavors are muted, but if you dig there is some coffee roast and bitterness on a toasted grain backbone. Subtle smoke and chocolate highlights. The body is thin and dry, with a subtle roasted coffee aftertaste. Thin, dry, almost astringent finish. Tasty, but muted, and everything else is all over the place.
