A pint at Radio in 9/4/14. A nice roasty schwazbier from ABW. Not as heavily hopped as some west coast Schwarzbiers, so the roasted malt characteristic shine. Decent balance, though, as it the malt isn't in your face. Drinks like an aggressive porter. Muted aroma, but big coffee flavor. Medium carbonation and body. Clean finish with a hint of bitterness.
