Uggh! Smells good, looks good, tastes like you’re stuck in the snow!! What off taste, nasty ass yeast is this made with? Sour trying to be hidden behind a smokescreen of weird grain and odd hops. Fizzy. Badly fizzy. Avoid.

mike67 (767) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Pours brown with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of grassy hops, grain, caramel and bready malt and some black cherries. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is of caramel malt, bread crust and herbal hops. Finish is long and herbal, semi-dry. Overall it is good brew, but taste more like Dunkel than Schwarz beer.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Aroma - is ok, it has nice rich malts in the nose and a little dark notes. Appearance - is a dark brown Coca-Cola color. Not much head, joust a faint halo of white. Taste - it’s malts ahoy, semi-sweet Feel - is sticky and sweet, and the finish is swift and soft. It is a nice beer for session drinking. Very enjoyable, with some distinct characteristics.

arojewski (49) - Old Bridge, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours dark red/brown to black. No discernible aroma. Initial earthy flavor that quickly disappears and a late arriving malty aftertaste. Pretty unremarkable.

Sammy (8348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
Murky black with lots of soapy white head. Beery and licorice aroma. Average mouthfeel but little taste.Horrid shwartz overall.

boxofrane (2045) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Draft at beer fest. Pours reddish brown with a small head. The aroma is lightly hoppy but primarily caramel.. some toasted nuts. The taste is lightly bitter nd fairly fruity. Odd mix.

60minuteman (693) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Earthy tones, pine, grass, barley, malt. Pretty standard drink, doesn’t have much character.

JFGrind (1833) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Brown, medium bodied chocolate malt , light bitterness. Decent Schwarzbier, a bit light for a Winter beer. Most impressed that Genesee can contract brew a decent Schwarzbier.

Not a great winter ale. Lacking in any type of taste, this beer by East Coast Beer Co. doesn’t bring that cinnamon flavor you expect with a winter seasonal.
