11 oz bottle. no bottling info

Pours a reddish cola body with a white head. Little retention or lacing (aggressive pour recommended )

A nice bready roasted malt. Somewhat prominent

Taste follows the smell. A slight bitter finish.

Feel was a little watery and thin

Overall; Not the best Schwarzbier I have ever had, but keeping in mind that this is a lower ABV (5.40) session beer... it's not bad !! At $9.99 a 12 pack it's a great value and worth buying again ! (and I will)

Yes it has nothing to do with the beer... But the inside of every bottle cap had a scissors. rock, or paper on it. It made me think of my college days ! (we didn't have beer pong then)

Sneaked a little stubby at Beard's 40th birthday party. Good dark lager, but a shame you get gyped out of half an ounce each bottle. Extra points for the stubby, though.

Another excellent beer from Full Sail. Surprisingly refreshing for a dark lager, but the strong toasty taste is there. My only complaint about it is if I drink more than one I get heartburn (It happens with all dark lagers, but this one is worse). But now that I never drink more than one of any individual beer on the same day it was welcomed back to my fridge.

I am a LOVER of dark beer. When I saw "Full-on Blackalishiousness" on the top of the box, I thought I had a real winner!!! This is not dark beer:( It's just light beer in a dark bottle. Why not put it in a goblet an call it wine? It's better than Old Milwaukee and Natural Light.
UPDATE: My wife likes this beer. She likes thinner tasting beers, however.
