Midnight Expression

22 oz bottle, $4.99 from Smyrna Beverage World, Smyrna, GA, USA.
Black pour with an attractive, pitted, mocha colored head that is light and bubbly. Looks nice.
Nice is a somewhat neutral malty sweetness, even when warmed slightly.
The initial taste blast is a little unexpected and seems quite bitter and hoppy. I wasn’t expecting this a all considering the style and it is really noticeable. I didn’t like that jolt very much, but on the plus side as soon as it came, it faded and the middle and back end of the beer behaved in a much more standard fashion. Some light roast and a sweet back end give a more traditional flavor to the Schwarzbier.
Not bad, but not a style and therefore a beer, that I’m really fond of so I doubt I’ll be visiting this again anytime soon.
It says something about he craft beer scene in the US when I am delighted by the fact that the beer is *only* 5%!
