Pretty good for a scharzbier, if that’s what it is. Smells a little dark and has some character. Tastes better than yer average black lager, whatever that means. Hell, last beer of night.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[on tap at brewpub]
Smooth, faintly roasted barley vanilla aroma with faint noble hops. Clear dark brown under a lasting, off-white sheet surrounded by large bubbles. Fairly sweet flavor with roasted barley vanilla, coffee, and brown sugar accents. Bitterness is insufficient to balance the sweet malt. Medium body, moderate to medium carbonation, clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
625 ml bottle from the brewpub (Recipe 1, Batch 2). Pours an opaque very dark brown with decent-sized, lasting light brown head. Aroma is dry and a bit roasty/smoky, a bit sweet with dark chocolate and fruit. Flavour is also balanced between roast verging on smoke and sweetness with notes chocolate and darkish fruit (maybe plum/grape). Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy. Solid.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown-black with off-brown/tan head. Tight aromas that reflect fuller flavors - tastes a bit acrid and roasty, manure and pumpernickel, simply don’t like this one for the off-putting barn aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Harbord House in Toronto, served in a tulip. Pours deep black with a moderate tan head that remains and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there are notes of roast malt and noble hops, along with subtle smoke and earth. The flavour is dry and roasty with subtle hoppiness and a touch of molasses. The finish is long and roasty but fairly well balanced. On the palate, it is medium in body with a slightly dry texture and average carbonation. Overall, a decent black lager with nice malts and good balance. 2013-04-16
