Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Draft @ Cervesas. Black, deep. Tan head. Aroma has pasteli carob candy, cola, prunes, nice complex mix. A slight bit of butteriness. Great carbo level. Licorice, prunes, earth, and a clean almost abrupt finish that makes it moreish. Fruity, rich, and solid.

On draft at the Brass Tap, pours a dark brown, almost black color, aromas of roasted malt, chocolate, herbs, and a smidge of smoke. FLavor is much the same, huge malty flavor, really nice beer overall.

markwise (4898) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2011
On draft at Cigar City. Another awesome lager from CCB! Pours a dark cola brown with an off-white head. Nose is some roasted malts, some earth, some slight smoke, some dry chocolate and cocoa. Flavor is similar with hints of chocolate, earth, bits of smoke, and roasted malts. Clean in the finish with just a hint of lingering smoke. Light to medium in body and overall an enjoyable lager.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 4, 2014
Clear, black, but hard to see through. Khaki, short, tight head. Muted pencil shaving aroma. Malty, slightly roasty, sunflower seed flavors. Good mouth, satisfying balance. I could drink a mess of this. Sweetish, smooth, with a good bit of roastiness. Proof on tap, downstairs with PorterPounder.

cheap (4751) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Had this on tap at Willards Tap House in largo fla. Looks like a stout. Mild easy aroma of stout. Friendly and fun, to an extent. Not overwhelming but there is a roasted slighjt burnt finish. Bitterness also builds on the finish.

SlovakSniper (4135) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
En fût au Riverside Market Cafe. Un verre presque noir. Une petite tête brune bien droite. Des parfums de malts chocolatés rôtis avec des traces de café, du caramel terreux, de la fine fumée de torréfaction et des arômes de conifères. Des saveurs bien sèches de grains noirs grillés et rôtis avec une petite présence de fumée et des traces de houblons américains et anglais. En bouche, un corps moyen avec un pétillement au ralenti et une texture bien crémeuse. Une finale chocolatée justement sèche. Une belle surprise. Très facile à boire.

SHIG (4045) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Draft at Brass Tap: Poured a deep dark brown/black with a reddish hint. Sweet roasted malt aroma. Taste is a bold malt with spices and molasses. The Germans who follow the code would roll over if they tried this example of Schwarzbier!
