Beautiful beer in the tall Stella glass-- near black with a fine high foam. Plenty sudsy on the way down as well.

Pleasant smooth flavor. Another ideal sort of lager, only the dark type. A little malty sweetness along with the nicely darkened variety of malt flavors. Some grainy taste and just a hint of burnt sugar. Totally drinkable and one of the best Schwarzbiers I've had. Not much bitterness but the blackened grainy taste makes for a nice finish.

From the swing-top junior growler bought at the Bi-Rite Market on 18th St. in San Francisco. Beer was in very good condition. This batch says 5.2% ABV and 19 IBU.
