Drake (9967) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Very fresh growler from the brewpub. Pours a hazy brown color with a red-orange tinge. Medium head with good head retention and lacing. Aroma is slightly roasted malts with berry like fruit notes, light tobacco, caramel and toast and very faint nuttiness. Taste is roasted malts, nuts, caramel and something lightly milky. Mildly hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle... Pours black with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The nose is grainy and loaded with deeply roasted notes. The bittersweet flavor mirrors the aroma, but also offers a nice kiss of vanilla. The lengthy finish is crisp, burnt and bitter. Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm93!

drowland (6576) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Dark brown almost black pour with a small khaki head. Roasted malts, coffee, caramel, a bit of a burnt toffee touch in the aroma. Roasted malts in the flavor, dry enough to balance the caramel and toffee aspect. Nice.

nimbleprop (5419) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Let’s make this beer official! 10th rate for this Schwartz. 12oz bottle I picked up in Fredericksburg. Pours a watery mostly opaque black with some creamy, beige head. Nose is nice, stale bread, some light smoke, a little Worcestershire sauce, malt, very light soy. Flavor is nice, more depth than the standard Schwartz, grilled meat, some mushroom, malt, brown toasted bread, some coffee, metallic tonic water, some soy. Medium bodied, dry, mostly clean finish. Really solid.

Strykzone (5283) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Nate as a Christmas mixer. Black with a tan head. I get ash and chocolate in the aroma with a little roast. The flavor is earthy with that roast and chocolate. The ash, too. A nice smooth easy drinking beer.
