0.33 L bottle poured into a glass. The smell is not overpowering, but is a little chocolaty. This beer has a red/brown color that you can see through with a white top. It has a nice kind of fruity taste with decent aftertaste that says with you for a while. This beer would be great for someone that canít easily drink a "normal beer" as it has a sweeter taste than many other beers out there. It is also good for someone who wants a change from that typical beer taste you get a lot. Overall it was quite refreshing and much better than my Duff beer in the refrigerator. haha

(Bottle into dimpled mug) I was rather surprised by this one. I expected a Schwarzbier to be black and heavy on the roast, to the point where I could taste it. This had none of that. The pour was a dark, deep brown, which is attractive, but when you can see through to the bottom of the glass, schwarz it is not! A thin head formed then was gone almost immediately. There was no real aroma I could put my finger on. There was a hint of a roast and a little pepper, but nothing remarkable. The drink itself was very disappointing. I expect something of this style to be a little thicker and have bold flavor. Upon letting this one sit for a while to warm, I found that the flavors did develop nicely and there was a bit of a caramel malt that came out and gave this some character. Still not my favorite, but not too bad afterall!

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Cola-colored pour with a smaller soapy white head. Aroma of caramel malt and dark fruit. Palate is pretty thin. Taste is also dark fruit/fig and malt. Pretty good. Based on some of the recent ratings, I wonder if thereís some quality control issues with this one - the bottle I had was really pretty decent, and I didnít get any of the metallic/skunk elements others spoke of.

Structurally, this beer is well put together. Nice color, much like brown ale, medium darkness. Can see through it. Head is nice and creamy and the bottle which seems to be showing its age, still had plenty of head. The aroma is not great. Thereís a good amount of metaillic smell to this one. Whatís left is honey notes and some roasted barley. Light mouthfeel, light roasting flavor, more honey and generous metallic flavor. Ends very metallic. I donít think this is a good example... it really seems as though the beer is just too old. That or I got the first bottle ever brewed from 1378.

Bottle courtesy drowland. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a foamy off white colored head. Aroma is syrupy, sticks, and some stale notes. Flavor is woody, stale malts, leaves and odd finishes. Not great.
