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.

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.

330ml bottle. Oversized glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Very dark amber color. Beige, small bubbled froth. Lasting close head. Roasted malts, notes of bready crust & hints of cocoa to the nose. Smooth roasted malty upfront over hoppy backbone that provides fruity & gentle bitterness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Delightful well balanced beer.

F:
light-medium carbonation,light-medium body

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

The colour is dark brown; the liquid is clear. It is way too bright for the style. The two finger head is airy and beige. No lacing occurs.

The smell got some notes of olicloth and plastics. Some roasted flavours.

Roasted flavours in the taste, as well as sweet candy-like notes. Medium bitterness and body. Smooth aftertaste with some lactose and crisp bread.

The carbonation is medium strong, the bubbles mid-sized.

A bit dull, although there is nothing wrong with this one. But it looks and tastes more like a dark Wienna lager than a schwartzbier.
