A: dark brown murky color with dark ruby red

S: huge smoked malt, burnt wood, meat, sweet malt, caramel. Smiley and meaty

T: smoke up front. Campfire, bacon, caramel, brown sugar, sweet berries. A faint earthy bitterness

M: medium. Small carbonation

O: real nice beer here. The smoke is present, but mellow and harmonized. It's a lighter beer that can work in summer or winter

Had this on tap at the old brewery during a tour. An amazing, delicious beer that is exemplary of this very under-appreciated and under-rated style. I've had several schwarzbiers before and after this but nothing stands up to Live Oak, it's the best.

Excellent example of a vastly underrated style. Roasted and toasted yet it is easy to pound a few of these back without blinking an eye. My first Schwarzbier which has lead to me seeking out more to try yet still the best I've had.

4/1…served on tap in Austin. pours very dark brown, almost black. light foam. Light chocolate malt taste, coffee in there too. Thin mouthfeel, almost watery. Good.
