redlight (2318) - 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.

fluffy (2243) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2011
roasted grains dominate, though it finished a bit thin with a hoppiness that sort of throws it off. not bad but not that interesting either.

On tap at Churckey for the Funky Buddha event. Smokey malts and caramel toffee with espresso grounds and bitter bakers chocolate. Delicious.

rdixon77 (2021) - Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Dark black, almost opaque pour. Lots of grains and maltiness with a roasted presence in the aroma. Taste was much crisper bringing in a slight hop bite to match biscuit, coffee, and chocolate flavors. Light and drinkable for being so rich. Very good.

jstraw (1954) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2012
Draft. Black with good, creamy, tan head / Nose of toasted barley and tobacco / Medium, creamy body with modest acidity and long, dry, bitter finish / Very smooth flavors of dark roast coffee and tobacco, with a hint of dark caramel / Near perfect for this style.

Rustyham (1829) - 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.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Really nice rich chocolatey lager. Nothing particularly smokey from this, but light sweetness and very pleasant.

NordicV (1774) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2012
Fat Lost Kangaroo. Svart öl med rubinröda tendenser i ljuset. Doft av rostad malt och kaffe. Ovanligt mycket kaffe i smaken för att vara en Schwarzbier. Smaken påminner mer om en stout om än inte lika fyllig och torr. God.

gkost (1709) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Pours jet black with thick tan head. Nose is big roast, clean grains, hint of smoke. Flavor is crisp and clean, perfect amount of roasted grain, nice and dry with with the perfect amount of sweetness. Excellent beer.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Pours dark brown with a eggshell colored head. Nose is lots of deep roast, chocolate and nice smoke. Flavor is a great roastiness with touches of smoke. Very nice and easy drinking sessionable beer. Fantastic.
