Dextolen (151) - Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Bottle. Pours a dark brown/blackish with a decent tan head. No lacing but my glass was pretty wet. Wonderful licorice sorta anise aroma. I really love the smell of this brew. My wife hates it. I’m like...molasses...and she chimes in "poop". What does she know? Mellow flavors, a bit chocolatey, malty. Dry. I dig it.

BossHossBikes (148) - California, USA - APR 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a huge fluffy off-white head. The aroma is a little skunked with some noticeable maltiness. The skunkiness in the aroma is too distracting for me to pick out other scents. Ugh, green bottles should be banned. Anyway, the mouthfeel is thick and creamy. The initial flavour is slightly skunked, much like the aroma. Past the skunkiness, there isn’t much flavour and tastes kind of watery up until the finish. The finish is very malty with notes of caramel, bread, and molasses. Skunk persists through the finish, but doesn’t completely ruin it. The only thing that seems mildly enjoyable is the finish. The rest of the experience is a chore. This is very sub-par, and the skunkiness isn’t helping at all. If they put some effort into bottling in brown bottles I’d purchase another one to make sure this tasting wasn’t just a rarely spoiled bottle. But alas, it’s a green bottle, so I instantly don’t care to make a second attempt.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Not really sure where to class this beer... but it is decent none the less. Pours a dark purplish red. a little head, and a moterate amount of carbonation. Taste is very on dimentional. Same taste throughout the glass. the taste is a smooth chochlate roasted nut flavor. not very complex, but tasty none the less.

crhensel (138) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2012
(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!

schoolofchuck (135) - Kansas, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pronounced chocolate aroma along with the typical toasted oats cereal and earthy dampness of a dunkel. Some caramel and malt too. Mild bitter taste and sweetness. Reminds me of a bread-cake food item with some chocolate here and there.

muffel (135) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2010 Bottle 0.33l Pours a small white head which disappears quickly. Color is darkbrown (coke-brown maybe). Aroma is very soft and malty, some toffee, caramel, coffee and it has a light bitter aftertaste (getting stronger when warmer). Low carbonation, light to medium body. Very drinkable.

mctous (131) - Herndon, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Surprisingly yeasty aroma for a lager. Pours with a slight, short-lived head. Light body, sweet without being syrupy, minimal hops, but plenty of yeast. Soft palate with a very clean finish.

ajolly2 (129) - USA - APR 30, 2007
Nice dark amber color with a good amount of carbonation; off-white and moderate head; thin lacing; medium-bodied and very smooth; sweet and a little spicy on the tongue, with hints of caramel, malts, and chocolate; a little watery and very low on the alcohol; overall a very good brew.

RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Dark brown color, not much head. Overwhelming roasty coffee aroma with some chocolate. Taste is of dark chocolate, butterscotch, and finishes like caramel. A little thin for my taste.

Poured a rich dark brown with a small white head. Aroma of molasses; body, very thin and watery with a nutty molasses flavor, dry finish.
