UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Draft poured. Dark almost black with practically no head. Hard to tell the aroma in this glass. Flavors are light roast, chocolate, malt, easy hops on the finish. Goes down smooth and tasty but not remarkable

Aroma: malty and roasty with some hops in the background; Appearance: extremely dark ruby red with fluffy, off white head that dissipates slowly; some lacing; Taste: combination of lager and stout tastes odd to me; not my thing; some chocolate notes; Palate: long and chocolatey finish with a medium body; Overall: I can appreciate it but don’t really care for it. Would not buy again.

12 oz. can. Pours a dark cola brown with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt with a bit of smokiness. Taste is roasted malt, nuts, a touch of smoke, hints of chocolate, and coffee. Has a pleasant lingering finish of mildly bitter roasted malt. Medium-bodied but on the lighter side of the spectrum. Nice one.

12oz beer. Walnut color, clear-ish, with light lacing, and a small off-white head. Pretty nice aroma, chocolate malts dominate. Taste is as advertised, not overpowering, pretty good schwartz! Traditional, with a kick. Nice medium mouthfeel/palate, with a light lingering bitterness. Recommended!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated based on notes taken 23 May 2012 -- A well made schwartzbier. A tad bit on the light side. Needs just a little bit more stuff to it. But it’ll drink just fine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can at home. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, toast, faint biscuit. Nice. Taste is cocoa, coffee, toast, roasted malts, biscuit. Clean finish, crisp, a faint bitterness. Medium body, high carbonation. Thin mouthfeel. I enjoyed this, a lighter stout like beer with crisp finish. Could have one on a hot day and not be overwhelmed.
