COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Late Fall into winter seasonal. More malt, more malt, more malt. Dark malt and the fact that light can't pass through gave this beer its name. Hearty in flavor, great in taste.

Very dark brown, somewhat black, w/ light brown foam. Toasty, slightly smoky aroma of dark chocolate & coffee w/ an earthy, meatiness. Full-bodied, slightly chewy feel. Flavour shows roastiness, dark chocolate, coffee (espresso) w/ a very mild, appetizing sourness.

Appearance from likely generous American at Doug Shoemaker Party. Very sweet with chocolate malts and who knows what to sweeten the smoke, but also bitterness at the finish.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Shared by Skyview. A good schwarzbier. Simple but good roasted aroma. Flavor is like an oatmeal stout, with the roasted flavor the dominant character. Rich malt, and oak in the aftertaste.

Doug’s, Christmas 2004. Dark brown colour, nice tan head. Sour coffee aroma. The taste is nice than the smell - reminded me of a sour old style porter with slight coffee notes. A little watery. Not bad.

Beer tasting at Cellars Lex/Larpenteur. Thanks Bob (Skyview) for this treat! Roasty notes and a nice flavor here. Unfortunately the sample was served too cold and from a growler it was undercarbonated, which lessened the experience. I think this would be a nice beer with the right conditions. Glad I was able to sample.

[Growler, thanks Skyview] Pours dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma is very odd, a little roastiness but a strange almost moldy scent is also in there. Taste is coffee and roasted malt with a little bit of chocolate. Quite smooth. An ok beer, but it really didn’t work for me, and the aroma was pretty strange.

Growler at DougShoemaker’s. Considering that this spent considerable time out of the keg this was a pretty decent beer. Deep black color with a light brown head. Coffee aromas. Slightly bitter. Light to medium bodied. Flavors were coffee and roasted malt.

Thanks to whoever brought this to the Toronto Christmas Party ’04. Admittedly older growler but still in great shape. Very dark mahogony, nice tan head. Nose is smoky, dark roasted malts. Rich smoky bitterness, chocolaty finish.
