Aroma: Roasted malts, caramel, some chocolate, nuts, toast, grains, and a little earth
Appearance: The pour is dark brown-black in color with a foamy lasting light brown head
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, roasty, some coffee flavors, touch of smoke, and some earthy hops

This is my first beer from this brewery under the Baron name, but I have had a couple of the Three Skulls name. Anyway, this was a pretty solid one. Drinkable and with a solid flavor. Some nice stuff.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pours a medium mahogany brown with a rather lively light brown head. aroma of coffee with fruity nuances. Palate is on the thin side and slightly overcarbonated, with flavours of coffee, chocolate, with a reedy vegetal note in the end. Just okay for me, not as roasty as I like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good sized milky brown head of very fine and creamy bubbles. Reduces slowly. Rich roasty aroma with some chocolate, malted milk balls, roasted grains and a bit of berry. Color is a very dark brown. Lively in the mouth with some soft roasted malts, dark chocolate and some grainy notes. A little bit gritty on the palate. Finishes roasty and smooth. A pretty good schwartzbier.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber from Spirits RB. Poured a liquidy black body sitting underneath a smaller sized cream colored frothy head. Aroma of faint chocolate, grassy hops, stale brownies, nutts and brown bread. The body is suprisingly chewy and full with average carbonation and an ever so slight lingering aftertaste. Flavor starts off with a slight sour chocolate note, dark grains, grass, cola. Pleasantly suprised by this one and I would gladly drink it again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Deep roasted barley aroma with a bit of smoke and chocolate/caramel. Clear dark brown bordering on black with a very small tan head. Super smooth mouth feel and a light body that defies the appearance, average carbonation. This is a great example of a "German Black Beer" fresh from the Pacific Northwest.
