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.

jgb9348 (4652) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Rich deep dark brown body with a lighter brown and deeper than cola coloured tint - all with a thin, half a centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, grass and a lot of deep bitterness from the malt. Light-bodied; Strong roasty flavours with the nuts and caramel coming out the strongest, then showing a light grassy and dry flavour. Aftertaste shows some deep bitterness, but mostly a dry herbal note and very light smoked flavour. Overall, a nice and strong bitter flavour from the malt and little else, especially in terms of complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Giant Food in Arlington, Virginia on 12-March-2013 for US$1.67 sampled at home in Washington on 30-March-2014, just over a year later.

nimbleprop (4596) - 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.
