Bought a 4-pack 16.9 oz cans $5.79 Tamuras
Dark black color
Roasted malt smell
Initially produced a big head and then settled to a low carbonation
Medium mouthfeel, slightly creamy texture
Some coffee flavors, roasted malts, kind of thin tasting. Not bold like I expected it to be.
Overall just ok. Probably won't buy again.

This is a world classic and one super tasty beer. It pours very dark black with a chocolate-milk-hued head of insane retention. The aroma is sweet and malty with some hints of amaretto. The taste is very well balanced and much more intense than any other paler lager but at the same time very drinkable.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice black color with a decent one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some nice slightly foamy lacing sliding right down the sides of the glass. The smell had a delicate balance of sweet dark fruits gently rolling into a nice roasty sweet chocolate. The taste was mainly the same thing and it left a watery finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium and showed a nice sessionability about it. The carbonation was extremely smooth and slightly velvety. Overall, well, this was a very nice Schwarzbier to have. I totally recommend.
