my taste buds have certainly changed. if I had had this one a few years ago I believe it would have been one of my top german brews up there with the franziskaner, spaten, weihenstephaner, etc..... but still a great brew! I like it!

It's good tasting but nothing that stands out among the others.

Served from tap in a tall pokal at Firkin.

How have I not tried this stuff before? Rectifying that, it pours a deep midnight smoked sienna (nearly black, frankly) topped by a finger of sandstone foam. The nose comprises mild maple syrup, roasted malts, and a hint of greenery. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some grass and a twinge of cola near the finish. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a crisp-ish finish. Overall, a pretty nice schwarz. 'Nuff said.
