Color is a bit off with a clear chestnut brown with a ruby-like glow within, the head more then made up for it though, solid, finger high, thick and firm off-white top that sat a good while before fading down to a thick skim, globby small lacing. Aroma is roasty and sweet of malts with some plum and raisin undertones. Flavors are sweet and lightly dry of a roasted quality that aren't withstanding some length or boldness, not that its really all that necessary for the style but it seems to be over quickly. There's some nice subtlities to the roastyness with toffee, caramel, dark fruits, and grasses that help keep its pleasing tone, the finish is fluffy clean and slightly dry which is nice as well. Slight metalic bittering sneaks in nearer the finish. Feel is lightly creamy with a smooth light carbonation and hold of drying qualities within its medium body. Its a nice little drinker, mild and easy.

It's ok for a schwarzbier I suppose, nothing special really leaps out at me though.

Draught at The Rover, Göteborg, Sweden. Dark brown. A soft nutty maltiness makes this feel well balanced.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Crystal clear, mahogony lager with a large frothy, off-white head. Good lacing Both the flavor and aroma seem to be lightstruck. Skunky. Better flavors and aromas to note: chocolate, maple syrup and yeast. Well-hopped. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, bitter finish. Just can't get past that skunkiness!

Beautiful dark brownish red. Sugary aroma. When touched to the lips, a definite butterscotch taste. Followed by some caramel and chocolate. Frothy head which disapates rather quickly.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Dark brown, almost black with a thick off-white head. Thick caramel and chocolate German malt aroma. Chocolate malt and earthy grains are most dominant. Finish is sugary sweet, but a little thin, otherwise a pretty good schwarzbier.
