Lightly roasted raisin nose. Blackish/brown color with deep ruby hue, medium frothy tan head. Subtle dark chocolate sprinkle sweetness, solid clean bitterness provides balance. Big carbonation, medium body, clean crisp chocolate finish. Well crafted beer with complexity, the chocolate notes are extremely subtle and beer comes across as refreshing.

A cute little bottle fondled over to me by Cavie and poured into a pint glass. The pour is dark brown with a tiny white head on top. The aroma is big sweet lager all the way with touches of roast. The entry is suprisingly sweet and finishes with plenty of roasty dryness. As I went through it I could swear I kept tasting cinnamon as well. The body is light and the mouthfeel is smooth and carbonated to go down easy.

caramel and tar hit the deck .. . easy to drink, even for a golliwog .. . not much foam, but a good session black lager, for some odd reason.. . the warm up brew for the F.S revolution#9 anniversary party! ..

Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Pours a rather darkish ruby with a slim beige head. Aromas of dark malt and chocolate. Medium body with firm carbonation. There’s some light fruit beneath the dark malt and chocolate. Rather refreshing. Good drink. Finishes towards bitter.

From a 12 oz stubby bottle this poured a medium brown with a light tan head and light lacing. Nose comes on with light roasted malts and some chocolate, and a hint of coffee and ripe fruit. Fairly light mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly of caramel malts with a light bitterness in the dry finish.

Very nice rendition. Malt is at that perfect burntness that it should be at for a schwarz.
