3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The appearance of this beer was a little shocking when first poured, for it’s really uncommon to see an orangeish brown color with a small off-white head from a lager; furthermore, the aroma was reminiscent of caramel and roasted malts as well as dough yeast. The taste is mildly sour, touch umami, and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, average carbonation, slick texture, and a malty finish.

Mouthfeel is very thin and watery but this is a lager. The taste is roasted malt and sweetness and very tasty for a lager beer. I first had this beer 14 years ago in New Orleans so very nostalgic.

Not as bad as I was expecting. Kind of a cool orange/red pour w/ a thin head & not much lacing. Aroma is of sweet malt. Taste is clean & somewhat sweet. It’s smooth, drinkable, & alright for a hot summer night!

This was pretty revolutionary when it first came out as it was one of the first black beers of the American Craft Beer industry. It is a smooth lager with dark roasted malts that are blended nicely. It pokes a deep black color with a small head and mild aroma. This is a good beer.

[US West Coast Trip 2013] nej jag är ledsen men Schwarzbier är inte min grej. Rostade toner, bröd och lite citrus i aroman. Mycket citrus i smaken, nja det här var inte bra....

12oz bottle. Pours brown, clear, small head with very light lacing. Great aroma, very appetizing, with sweetbreads. Caramel-y taste, very balanced, bitter enough and complex for a lager. Different than other schwarzbiers I’ve had, not roasty at all. Pretty good, man!
