dchmela (3003) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2012
From the growler. Reddish black pour with a thin light tan head. Huge roasted grain aroma with smoky notes and a hint of chocolate. Nice malt body, not too heavy with lots of roasted grain, chocolate and a roasted bitterness on the finish. Very well done.

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

32 oz. swing top growler via trade with smith4498 - Pours a dark brown color with a one finger thick tan head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is roasted, almost burnt malt. Flavor is lightly sweetened roasted malt and light chocolate with some herbal hops trying to bust out. Finish is smooth and roasty. Medium body. Schwarzbier beers are probably my favorite style of Lagers and this is a good one. Thanks Jason.

MrBunn (2711) - 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.

glennmastrange (2620) - 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.

wedgie9 (2595) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Tasted on 5/26/12 from a growler, thanks to Nick. Pours completely opaque black with a thin beige head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is full of coffee and dark chocolate with a nice bitter green hops aroma. The flavor is nice and dry with coffee, dusty dark chocolate, and the green, nicely bitter hops. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation, and a long bitter dark chocolate and coffee finish.

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.
