Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Deep dark brown with a nice beige head and decent lacing. Smells of sweet dark toast which carries over to the taste. A bit of chocolate and a hint of coffee. A nice beer!

Poured into dimpled seidel. No head, a smattering of lace. Color like watery cola.

Light toast and roast up front, underlying caramel sweetness.

Taste is likewise, malty sweet with a little roast note. Ends lighter than it begins.

Mouth has a nice fullness despite being a little watery.

Doesn't blow me away., but it's a decent schwarzbier on the sweeter side.

This is a 5.5 abv dark lager that is great with food. It's not too boozy, but creeps up on you fast

One of my all time favorites. Glad to find it at Gumbo Bar in Galveston!

I love dark styles and Rahr and Sons. This offering is rich in the dark color. It makes me expect chocolate or coffee. The cocoa is there, even close to burnt. Taste is sweet for my pallet. It is full in my mouth, almost syrupy. I am glad it is available year around.

Slightly lighter than a Porter. Very subtle smell and taste. Drinkable but not that complex
