On draft at Charm City Burgers. Dark brown/black color with a thin brownish head. Nice pleasant aroma of chocolate and woody characters. Flavor is a little charred but still very enjoyable.

MrBunn (2384) - 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.

Damico (2355) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Pours dark black coffee with an amber hue and decent creamy caramel head. The aroma brings pleasant roasted malts, fresh coffee, and black licorice. It tastes very similar, starts with light sweet roasted malty coffee notes that taste so fresh and delicious. The body is just right, not crispy or creamy, but so smooth.

redlight (2303) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2011
draft @ redlight redlight. Roasted malts on the nose with notes of chocolate and charcoal. Pours very dark brown/black with a thick off white head. Pretty thick mouthfeel, rich and chocolatey with hints of smoke and bitter bakers chocolate. Pretty good. Flavor is great just pretty thick for a schwarzbier, reminds more of a baltic porter.

Huhzubendah (2262) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 29, 2012
On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roasty, with notes of coffee and chocolate. Nice tasting beer. Light and simple. Easy drinking. A touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Well balanced. This is a nice brew that I wouldn’t mind drinking again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 07-04-2012

glennmastrange (2145) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2012
Tap. Moderate malt aroma of toasted, light to moderate herbs and resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with charcoal, licorice, milk and a hint of vinegar in the background.. Head is small, frothy, light tan with no lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation. A rich and bold Schwarzbier with a few tart notes.

jbruner (1983) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Pours a translucent brownish-black on tap with a thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, and coffee. Taste follows suit, but not offensive, well balanced. Good stuff, and a unique style.
