12oz canned 5-14-18
Been on the look out for a Reasonably Fresh 6pk of Reasonably Corrupt - finally found it.
Good clarity on a dark brown/mahogany with red highlights Schwarz bier. 3/4" beige head with really good retention and a long hang out at 1/4". Nice lacing here.
Sweet, caramel, roasted malts. Creamy slight coffee. Hint of minerality.
More of the good aroma in the flavor...add a little hint of a smokiness too it, some slight char. Creamy cold brew. Just a hint of sweetness mid-palette but dries out in the finish.
Light to medium bodied, good carbonation. Excellent drinkability and full of flavor.
Very happy to have found this, really good.

Black as coal with a head that looks like a latte's froth. Nose is like a light coffee with a malty hint. Taste is like a cool coffee with a lingering coffee flavor. Good beer

It pours a dark brown almost black with a tannish head that leaves a nice ring around the glass as I drank it. Smell is faint but a little coffee to it. The taste is of roasted malts, very smooth to drink. (Almost more like a porter.) The feel is light but as I said very smooth to drink. Overall I was very happy with this one, the first try from this brewery but I know I will try some of there other offerings.

Got in a BIF from jdell15. 12 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 6/14/2017. Pours slightly hazy dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, and toasted dark/brown bread; with light notes of nuttiness, smoke, char, herbal, grass, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roast/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, and toasted dark/brown bread; with light notes of nuttiness, smoke, char, herbal, grass, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/grassy/spicy hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark/brown bread, nuttiness, smoke, herbal, grass, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance, and zero acrid/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from hop/roast bitterness. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is an awesome schwarzbier! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Clean and rich Munich/roast malt flavors, with balancing noble hops. A really enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Dark brown color where light passes along the edge of the glass. Lasting off-white head which leaves some rings for lace.

Very mild aroma. I fact, I get some soapy notes which may be more from the washing of the glass.

The flavor is a definitive step up with darker black patent malt elements. This brings bitterness to the overall flavor. There may be hop in here but it's difficult to discern. Decent body with an elevated carbonation level--a little watery. A decent entry overall.

Pours a dark brown color with deep ivory colored head. Roasted malts, floral notes, some caramel tones, and some dark fruit on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more roast and caramel notes.
