Postmortem Brew Review
Deep black color with some ruby tones at edge of glass.
Malt and some fruit aromas.
Thick and creamy, caramel tan, two finger head that lasts and lasts.
Light  to medium carbonation.
Medium malt taste and a bit of bitterness from hops at the end.
Light to medium bodied. Surprising for a dark beer.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Sinister from the pour, this dark and lovely Schwarzbier makes a bold statement in your glass.  I was expecting a bit more pruney/coffee flavor, but none of that came through.  Not bad though.  In the end, I found it to be an overall easy to drink dark beer.

The blackness of the label and the blackness of the brew were the darkest parts.  The flavor, while tasty, didn't live up to the visual expectations.
