KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a coca-cola brown with some reddish highlights and an average sized (1-2 finger) light beige creamy head that diminished quickly down to just a thin film and a small foamy collar, which did create some excellent sheeting of lace. The aroma was bold and roasty of a roasted caramel malt and a mild leathery yeast with notes of caramel, chocolate, a mild dark fruit and a bit of ash. The taste was roasty, malty and mildly sweet with a hint of caramel from the start with the finish being about the same, but with a mild fruity presence and a touch of smoke at the end. The flavor lasted quite a long time after the swallow with a nice smoky/fruity taste left to linger on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and a bit oily yet still rather creamy in texture with an almost prickly carbonation. Overall very tasty and satisfying brew, one which had a nice bold roasty taste to it. Although I am not a big fan of this style, this one was quite enjoyable.

vulcanmeister (222) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle a burnt copper with a satisfying slowly fading off-white head. Aroma is malty with a hint of clove. Mouth feel is medium, carbonation is medium, and flavor is sweet carmel, toffee, and smoky malt. A little on the sweeter side, but I have a sweet tooth so no problem there. Carmel slowly fades away to a touch of bitter hops. Very enjoyable beverage!

snoworsummer (3333) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 18, 2015
From a bottle in Aspen. Pours clear copper brown with a thick, frothy beige head. Tastes like burnt malt, nutty, musky grains. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like nutty malt, musky grains, toasted toffee.

ordybill (695) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Douglasville, GA Aroma- Has a pretty good aroma of malt and sweet spice. Appearance- This is a dark brown beer with a small off-white head. Taste-the main flavor is malt with some sweet caramel flavoring tossed in. Palate- this is a light bodied and lightly carbonated beer Overall- I believe I have had this years ago but I remember it tasting different. I then read other comments saying it was now brewed under contract. That makes sense on why it tastes different. I thought it tasted better in the past, but not a bad beer.

loubar (154) - Los Gatos, California, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Pours a clear, dark amber with reddish highlights and a light tan head of good size that slowly fades. Nose of sweet malt and a little toast. Taste is sweet caramel malt, a hint of black coffee and some light, grassy hops. Not overly complex, more like a lager than a schwarzbier. Not bad. Pleasant and easy to drink.

TH28 (263) - - JAN 16, 2015
12oz bottle. No apparent package date. Appearance: Deep amber, slightly hazy, and an off white foam cap. Aroma: Getting some sulfur, followed by some bready, toasted malt Taste: A salty, crystal malt flavor with some toastiness an herbal hop character. Just a hint of roastiness. Mouthfeel: Light to medium mouthfeel with a moderate carbonation Finish: Lingering maltiness and some herbal hop character Overall: If this is supposed to be a schwarzbier/black lager, it’s missing the mark. This is much closer to a Vienna or marzen, but with noticably more crystal malt character. Completely missing that restrained roastiness that is the definition of the style. Not the worst lager I’ve had, but far from the best.

rdixon77 (1591) - Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pretty boring schwarzbier…more like a lager. Deep amber pour. Malt in the nose. More malt in the taste, along with raisin and some roast. Pretty sweet and grainy. Nothing special. Drank easy.

33 cl bottle. . 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 sweet. I wouldn’t necessarily consider the taste to be pleasant, but it isn’t awful either. Light to medium body. medium carbonation.
