Pours an appropriate deep blackish amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is full of bready malts and a slight roastiness. Flavor is very malty, with an almost tart rye note and a firm bitterness. Finish is tart and ashy. Not like any schwarzbier I’ve had -- doesn’t come off like a lager really. Body is a little heavy too.
