Pours a dark back with a thick mocha head. Aroma of coffee, smoke and chocolate. Taste follows, roast is nice, not over the top. Smooth and very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrBunn (2511) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap at Tampa airport. Body is dark brown with a tan head and aromas of... well... Kalamata olives and chocolate. Messed up, huh? I let it warm, still olives. It doesn’t show up in the flavor however as this is a silky chocolate beer from start to finish. This is an excellent schwarz.

4oz pour at Churchkey is a murky, transparent black with some creamy white head. Malty nose, light smoke, dark chocolate. Flavor is malty, stale licorice, smoke, coffee grounds. Medium bodied, sweet finish. Just too sweet.

Draft at Churchkey for the Bluejacket/Funky Buddha/Cigar City event during SAVOR week. Poured a dark color, almost black, with a light brown color. Aroma was chocolate, caramel, toffee perhaps. Smoke notes are pretty well balanced.

Scopey (7452) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Tap at Funky Buddha. It pours jet black, with a thick tan head. The nose is roasted malt, freshly ground coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is cocoa powder, caramel, roasted malt, charcoal, wood, dark chocolate and coffee, with a dry-roasted finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Good balance, not overly complex, but tasty. A very good schwarzbier.

Rustyham (1732) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Deep black color, eggshell head. Aroma is roasted malt. Flavor is a very dry bitter roasted malt and coffee. This is pretty rough, not an easy drinking lager.
