330ml bottle with 5.2% ABV listed. Just purchased but 14 months old.

Looks and smells like a typical schwarzbier, albeit with a weaker head and smelling slightly stronger and sweeter. Flavor of a typical schwarzbier too, if also slightly sweeter.

Medium-light body with near medium carbonation.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

From "Thunder Mountain" comes this beer, apparently. Anyway, it pours a clear garnet-brown topped by a finger of glowing off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises buttery biscuit, very light roasted malts, and a hint of cracked wheat. The taste holds notes of cola, light maple syrup, lightly-toasted biscuit, and a thought of maduro-style tobacco. It's mostly cola on my tongue, frankly. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a kinda weak schwarz, one that seems too watered-down quality-wise for its own good, like it was trying for more of a mass appeal or something. Or it's just not that great...

Nice bite of espresso bitterness with hints of dark chocolate and some dried fruit. Pours black with an airy, foamy beige head Palate is slightly watery, but overall this beer hits the mark for a schwarzbier. Not a big fan of their pils, but this one is nice.
