On tap at the brewery in Lihue. Dark black, ok head. Aroma was mild malts, maybe the beer was too cold. Flavor was real nice, roasty and goes down so smooth, very refreshing.

Poured on tap into a sampler glass at the brewery.

Quite light for a Schwarzbier, deep brown mahogany and dark walnut body with a nice creamy tan head and some red to lighter brown hues. Pretty unique looking.

Nose is virtually empty on this and quite closed. I get next to nothing so we have a middle of the road score per usual.

Taste at first seems a little off, almost acrid. Some light toast qualities but not much roast character. Some faint drip like coffee on the finish to go, but some faint sour grain hits still linger. Feel works out well and still carries the flavor if slightly wet.

I find this is such a hard style to nail but while drinkable this isnt one of my favorites from this brewery and it seems slightly flawed.
