Pretty good for a scharzbier, if thatís 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.

3.5 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 donít like this one for the off-putting barn aroma.

The beer pours a beautiful black colour with a decent sized brown head. Aroma is very stout like with plenty of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is roasted malt, somewhat mild coffee notes, and some yeastiness. A slight metallic aftertaste, but overall, quite enjoyable.

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

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
625ml bottle. Pours black with a three finger, tan head that thins to a half finger and leaves mild lacing.
Aroma is large with notes of chocolate and roasted malts.
Taste is slightly bitter/sweet with big chocolate notes and a short roasty aftertaste.
Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Slightly creamy, bubbly mouth feel.
This is a very easy drink. Great taste and aroma. Reminds me of a good porter or chocolate stout but not as thick.
