redlight (2317) - 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.

burg326 (3713) - Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2012
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.

Phillies08Champs (694) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Growler at one of Damico’s tastings. Nose is bacon and roasted malt. First sip is malty flavors of licorice, chicory andblack strap molasses . Finish has nice bitterness but not necessarily from hops.

OmegaX (1256) - Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Draft at CCB. Nose is heavy roast with some light chocolate and hay. Pour is dark brown with a decent head. Taste touches on roasted notes and some light coffee and chocolate flavors with a bit of hay and straw notes in the mix. Not bad.

Rustyham (1726) - 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.

nimbleprop (4896) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 19, 2012
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.

fluffy (1676) - 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.

cheap (4081) - 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.
