Pours as dark as night but smooth aroma and nice balanced malty flavor. Taste stays for awhile on your palate and keeps the enjoyment going. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClubGonzo (3984) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2014
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a pitch black body with a small light beige head. Nose is roasted bread, coffee, dark chocolate and hints of cereals. Taste is coffee, roasted bread, dark chocolate and hints of ashes. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Not too bad for a schwarzbier, which is among my least favorite beer styles.

Garrold (1208) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Just about black. Brown head that sets off big, then quickly reduces to a film. Fruity, dark chocolate. Licorice. A light, brown sauciness. Missus. Plenty of roast malt. Hint of coffee, too. Taste is firstly, smoky BBQ sweet, then roast malt dryness. Very smooth mouthfeel. Light bitter, medium dry finish. Lovely.

Bottle thanks to Andy. Dark black with thin off white head. Taste is all Smokey malt. Kind of like drinking a BBQ. Interesting and tasty.

BOSSbrewer (1581) - Arkansas, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Had at 28 Springs. Thanks Casey. Pours a rich dark brown with one finger of tan head. Lots of chocolate and cocoa with some roast on the nose. Flavor follows. Somewhat light bodied. Slight cardboard in the flavor. Overall a very nice beer.

NeuroPliny (143) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
Poured from an oversize bottle. Colour is cloudy black. Head is generous and dark brown in colour; good lacing. The aroma is rich in dark roasted malts, roasted coffee beans, burnt fudge, and smoked Gouda. Flavour is surprisingly bitter given the nose. Still, there is sweetness up front. There are notes of dark chocolate, expresso, and roasted malt. Awesome bitter aftertaste. Well polished Schwarzbier.

kindacold (210) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2014
From tap, this pours almost completely black with a nice thick head that dissipates over time. Mild coffee aroma. Cereal, grains, coffee, dark chocolate, and a hint of citrus at the finish. Some pepper notes in the aftertaste, but dominated by a bitterness. Lingers a bit, but then finishes clean.

Bottle: Pours black with a thick, dark brown head. Roasted, chocolate malt aroma....wood smoke... Taste is pronounced burned coffee bitter, licorice, malt.....creamy. The sweet start and bitter finish balance very well....a really nice one.

22oz bomber. Attractive opaque brown-black body. Respectable creamy beige head. The aroma has some mineral chocolate bitterness, which is not at all inappropriate for the style. On the fuller side of medium bodied, smooth and creamy, but still a depth of malt flavors. Certainly a solid example of the style, Gets some bonus points for the fact that they grow their own hops and barley. If you are open to this style, this is a worthy beer to seek out.
