4 Oz pour on tap.

A: Light brown black body with a light off white head.

S: light grains malts a little hoppy.

T: tastes a lot like a mild but even more watery and with a floral Hop bite on the end.

M: thin light

O: I was not too impressed with this beer. I would drink an English Mild over this any day.

Pours a dark brown color with an off white head and some lace. Aroma of smokey malts and more so chocolatey. Semi sweet chocolates are also present in the taste. Mild but present herbal bitterness checks in to provide ample balance. Medium bodied, full and carbonated lager. Overall, a decent black lager with some roast, coffee and chocolate hints. Better than many imports.

Jet black. Pretty smooth and close to a stout in look and taste. A lot of carbonation but would definitely order again.

On tap at the PDX brewpub

A: Dark brown/black with a tan one finger head that lingered.

S: Roasty malts, chocolate and cafe au lait.

T: Sweet, with dark chocolate, roasty malts and a nice coffee back.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: A tasty schwartzbier. Score another for Fathead's.
