Scrapersnbeer (1438) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Faint aroma of caramel, nuts and wood. No indication of whatís coming. Whoa, way too sweet toffee flavor. Almost syrupy, like when the mix of fountain soda is off. Light brown and clear, does not seem like a black lager at all. Strangely, it reminds me of a low rent version of Innis & Gunn. It should be clear this brewer is not coming back, thus joining the Minhas beer purgatory permanently.

DarkSong (277) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2014
12 oz bottle. It pours a reddish brown color with a large white long lasting head. It has the aroma of chocolate and tobacco. It has a complex array of flavors herbs, earthy & leather. It was well worth trying this beer but it wasnít one of my favorites.

skmikeg (741) - Poway, California, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Pours a reddish brown with a thin tan head which fades to almost nothing. Aroma is of toasted bready malts, ripe fruits, caramel, sweet malts, and some faint smoke. Taste is similar the aroma with the addition of some light grassy hops. Has a medium light body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a slighty bitter, medium, short finish. Overall, a slighty disappointing, below average Schwartzbier that seems pretty light for the style.

First Minhas variety. Rich caramel on the nose and palate. Does not smell or taste like a lager. Great body.

Erzengel (1931) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
Dark chestnut-brown in the glass. The beer starts smooth and malty-sweet - but not too. Highly drinkable. Slightly roasted. The mainpart is smooth, toffee, roasted grains. Not too sweet and nice. The aftertaste is long, malty-sweetish, smooth, slightly roasted toffee.
Nice and easy to drink dark lager --> 12/12/11/11

Block (1232) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2014
Mediocre. I didnít think this beer was anything special. Light, crisp, and a bit malty without any outstanding flavors.

JStax (2642) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2014
12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clearer ruby with a beige head of foam that dissipates at a moderate rate. The aroma is grassy, lemony, and doughy. The taste is a little bitter and vegetal. I wouldnít necessarily consider the taste to be pleasant, but it isnít awful either. Light to medium body. medium carbonation.

high_on_hops (552) - Burlingame, California, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Pours a cloudy brown with a foamy tan head and lacing. It has a malty, slightly toasty aroma with a similar flavor profile leading to a toasty, sweet finish over a light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
