The dark beer with the blond soul. It is a winter beer with mild malt flavor and aroma, moderate in body, and medium hop presence. A tasteful beer.

Sampled at ABR. Slightly hazy deep amber pour. Smaller head. Malty caramel. Simple and kinda boring.

Can:   Somewhat of a pale brown, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Soft toffee and bready nose, slightly grainy, some sweet nuttiness.   Similar tongue, smooth, quite nice.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Clean, nutty, and bready.   Nice little beer.   Thanks Bob!

[Tap] Part of a sampler at the brewery. Pours a deep amber color. Not as dark as I expected. Rocky brown head is inviting. Sweet malt aroma mixes with some dust as well. Taste is of sweet caramel malts, mild hops and slight metallic hints. Reminds me of Shiner Bock somehow.

16 oz. can thanks to Skyview. Caramel color brew/ leaning on brown color served in a lager glass. Huge white bubbles that laced most of the way down until it completely dies about 3/4 the way down. Nose is caramel, toasted grain and hints of coffee grounds. Flavor is pretty much spot on the aroma. Mouthfeel is appropriate for a dark lager. Texture is lightly sticky with a active effervescent carbonation. Really enjoyable.

Growler courtesy of Skyview. Dark brown color with a medium head. Slight grainy aroma. Mostly a raw, grainy flavor with a very light roasted malt backing.

Solid schwarzbier. Medium roasted malt flavor. Lager yeast flavor. Black with a short, thick head. It does have good palate, very smooth and a surprisingly thick mouthfeel. Thanks to Skyview for another one.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 On draught at the brewery tap room in Wausau, Wisconsin. Served very cold so allow time to warm up a wee bit. Pours a dark cola brown brew with a creamy off-white head that has some nice retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, some flowery hops, a touch of chocolate and some toffee. Taste is medium bodied, smooth, with flavors of toasted dark malt, some bread crust, chocolate and toffee. Finish has a slight metallic character but still has plenty of toasted dark malt aftertaste that slowly disappears. The brewery had a naming contest of this schwarzbier at the time I tried this. Update: The beer was named Midnight Star on December 30.
