Poured from a 12oz bottle into a lager glass. L: translucent root beer brown. Limited head fades to nothing. No lacing. S: toasted nuts, bonfire. T: limited smoke, hint of sweetness - plain honey. F: smooth, sweetness lingers. Easy drinking, round not creamy with enough carbonation to keep interest. O: not a bad dark lager.

Pours a very dark brown with a medium light tan head. Aromas of toasted grain. The flavors begin with some tart cherry up front, then some toasted bread, finishing with some herbal hops. Mouthfeel is average. Overall a decent beer.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 8/17/2015. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very good schwarzbier style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, clean, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
