Poured into pokal.

Appearance: Small cream colored head. Deep dark black color.

Nose: Chocolatey malt, though it fades quickly.

Taste: Mostly a light sweetness from brewing caramel, some chocolate as well. Very light roast on the tail.

Mouth: light and smooth.

Not a bad schwarzbier, though not one of the greats. A step above most pale import lagers, but still relatively light. Like most beers brewed south of Texas, it goes well dressed with salt and lime.

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass

L: amber-brown and clear out of the glass pushing up thick, 1 1/4-inch head of tan foam, creamy looking foam that lingers a bit; stacked in the glass the beer is definitely black, though up to the light it's a deep dark ruby red/purple and still clear; head doesn't stick, beer don't lace but keeps a thick collar and nearly full skin for awhile, then the skin disappears and you get a tight ring of tan foam

S: dusty dark and sweet fruit, dates ... sugar-coated dates; peach kolache; plum cake ... as it warms the darker fruit notes supersede the peach

T: fruity sweet ... peach, apricot, loads of sweet light malt flavor — ice cold you'd think it was an English pale; as it warms, some darker date/plum flavors enter

F: simple, light, no frills ... enough carbonation to fill it out; made for whatever ... sip it, chug it, swish it around, drink it out of the bottle ... it all works

O: me and my sweet tooth love it and love it so; the malt flavors are sweet and fruity and linger perfectly; schwarz lovers will wonder where the good roasted/charred/burnt flavors are, and I could see them sending this back to the brewer asking for a bit more "black" in this beer ... and they'd be right, for there's very little dark-malt flavor and nothing to speak of of wood or roast or char ... it's arguably a dark-colored light-malt bomb, and when I'm in the mood for that, I won't hesitate to grab some of this; as a schwarzbier? hard to score but we'll do what we can ...
