kkleu357 (599) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Dark black body. One bottle Poured with a nice lasting 1.5 inch head, the other Poured with a 1/2 inch fast dissipating one. Spicy sweet aroma. Heavy tasting beer. Flavors of pepper, sweet malt, mild bitterness. This is a big improvement over some of the old Capital beers. Looking forward to trying some other new ones.

Homer321 (2855) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Draft. Nose is chocolate with some cocoa and fudge. Dark brown to black with an offwhite head. Taste is a sugary chocolate with a faint bitterness. Quenching but a little thick and viscous for my preference. Solid though.

Dorwart (2452) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Decent sized head of very fine, dense and creamy bubbles that recede slowly. Dark roasted malts, hint of smoke, dark berries and a touch of soy. Color is a very dark brown. Very smooth and creamy on the palate from the strong malt profile. More roasted malts, soy sauce, molasses and some ash. Light alcohol presence. A pretty strong and roasty finish that lasts for a while. A pretty decent schwartzbier.

JMerritt (1894) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottled. Pours a dark baker’s chocolate brown with a clamshell tan head. Rich, slightly smokey and grainy aroma, a mix of toasted pumpernickel and fresh prairie grasses with a little bit of cola and roasted peanuts. Prairie grasses and straw notes follow into the flavor, along with some slightly roasted coffee, caramel, and a bit of overripe plum. Marshmallowy smooth texture with fine carbonation, though the finish is a touch watery. Thanks to Elwood62 for the bottle!

Dark brown pour. Nose of nutty roast and mild caramel malt. Flavor is powdery cocoa and light nutty roast with lightly sweet toasted malt and faint hops. Mildly acidic.

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Sampled on draught at the Aqualand Ale House in Boulder Jct., Wisconsin, and at Great Northern Beer Festival in Eagle River, Wisconsin. Pours a dark root beer brown colored brew with a decent sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind excellent lacing and a cream top. Aroma of roasted dark malt, floral hops, a hint of citrus and some cocoa. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of chocolate and caramel, roasted cocoa, vanilla and some very faint coffee. Finish is quite smooth, with a short roasted dark malt and floral hop aftertaste. Some of the smoothest scharzbiers I’ve tried.

AWISLguy (1827) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle from Steve’s in Fitchburg. Cellar aged 6 weeks. Pours cola colored with a tan head. Some spots of lace. Aroma has meat smoke, molasses, some cocoa and some caramelly malt. Taste is of sweet caramel, molasses, some bread, some grapey-ness, some cocoa nibs and an undercurrent of salty smoke. Medium bodied with a touch of alcohol. Finishes sweet with eventual salty bitterness. Mainly sweet. Not my favorite style, but an interesting take on it. 13.8
