look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

An 11.2 ounce Euro bottle poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance - A dark ruby-red color (almost black). The head disappates quickly. Zero lacing.

Smell - Toasted malt nose.

Taste - A sweet molasses flavor. Mildly toasty. A bit of a herbal taste. Minimal hop presences.

Mouth - Slick. Smooth.

Overall - A really like Schwarzbier. This is a good one but not a great on. The flavor is a bit thin. There is a slight metallic taste. Also, the complete lack of head/lacing is a little upsetting. If you have a choice, order the Kostritzer.

Pours a clear, dark brown. One inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, roasted malt, slight yeast, slight burnt toast, and a hint of syrup. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight caramel malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of wheat, hint of adjunct, and burnt toast. Overall, good appearance, but weak body and aroma, the burnt toast aroma and flavor is unpleasant.
