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.

Sampled at the brewery and I believe this to be my first in style. Medium brown in color, with a surprising smell and taste of chocolate, metal, and malts.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smoky black with a toffee-colored head. Not my cup o' tea. Reminded me of a Rauchbier rather than more traditional black lagers.

This beer tastes like a stout (roasted black patent taste) without the body, and like a schwarzbier without the smoothness; strange, and not much more
