Served on tap at Rheinland Restaurant in Independence Missouri.
Served in Warsteiner Mug.

A- Pours a light Chestnut color, with very froth bubbly head that lingers leaving little to no lacing.

S- Malty, Yeasty.

T- Not much there. I guess you could say its "dark beer" thats about it.

M- not thick at all, very thin. Med-High carbonation.

O- So, so. it feels like a mass produced dark beer. Like the "Bud Light of dark beers"

Poured a dark brown colour with a good head. Smells of dark fruits, honey, and caramel. Taste is of caramel with a honey finish. The finish is clean and warm with medium carbonation. Okay mouthfeel but is almoat soda like. I will have at least one of these in my fridge for a nice winter night.

a schwarzbier through and through. pours a foamy dark brown thin color with a nice white head an inch or two high. smells malty and a bit roasty with some notes of caramel and black licorice, but only gently. mouthfeel is average too, a bit of carbonation and some nice complexity in the finish. i wasnt wowed here. a sessionable darker munchen style brew, malty and boring in many ways. eh
