MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Poured dark brown with a small tan head. Light roasted malt aroma. Light walnut flavor and lightly sour. Okay.

Braudog (5493) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Smoky black with a toffee-colored head. Not my cup o' tea. Reminded me of a Rauchbier rather than more traditional black lagers.

GregClow (2819) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2003 Sampled at Honolulu location. Dark brown colour with tan head. Roasty coffee aroma with a slight vegetal edge. Strong coffee/mocha flavour. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was a very good porter or dry stout.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2002
Was also called Dark Star Lager at one time. Dark chestnut with a tan unassuming head. Aroma of black malt. Flavors of bitter chocolate. A bit astringent. Quite light maouthfeel. Finishes dark malt bitter with only a touch of sweetness.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Shazbat (100) - USA - FEB 5, 2001
It has the benefit of being very fresh due to the brewery/restaurant setup that Brew Moon has. Sweet in comparison to Guinness.

PhillyBeer2112 (2497) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2000
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2003 (Sampled at King of Prussia,PA) Smooth and creamy, bordering on flat, with a smooth head like Guinness. Similar mouthfeel to Guinness. Also quite bitter and mildly roasty. Not bad but nothing like any schwarzbier I've ever had. More comparable to a dry stout. Weird.
