Really dark color with ruby hues and mocha head. Aroma has intensely roasted malts, almost smoky. Tastes like slightly sweet coffee with chocolate notes. Body is quite light but smooth. A well made schwarzbier but nothing special.

Throughly enjoyed this beer.
Pours a dark almost jet black, with about 2 fingers of compact, slightly tan head. Leaves a strong lacing that lastes all the way through.
Smells like milk chocolate, coffee.
Super smooth chocolate taste, kinda reminded me of chocolate milk, and I like that. Easy to drink, good carbination levels, nice levels of malts. Being that I got this in Germany, the price wasnt too bad at all. Got this in a pack with 3 other beers from BraifactuM for around 15€ with pfand. One of the better Schwarzbiers I have had yet.

.nice viscosity

F:
light-medium carbonation,light-medium body
O:
I was sort of lukewarm to this.
Its a solid Schwarzbier,but considering it costs 3-4 times as much as other,better Schwarzbiers is a serious downer

On draft at Brauhaus Schmitz on 1-16-2015.

A deep jet black unfiltered draft with thick tan head that persisted through the session. More flavorful than any other version so far, spicier with more complexity. Hop and malt balance is exceptional.
