Its dark brown color is definitely more appealing than their other selections. It has a mild coffee taste. Good after taste.

On tap at the KC brewery. It pours dark brown with a 2 inch tan head. Smells of coffee and bread. It is a medium body with less flavor than most. It is fairly thin, but has a long lasting finish making up for the thin body. Overall it’s just average.

This beer pours black with a large tan head that dissipates quickly. the aroma is light coffee and chocolate. The palate is q little dry and roasty. Not a bad beer, fits the style. Cheers!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Palo Alto brewpub. Dark brown with a tan head. Toasted bread and light chocolate in the aroma. The flavor is pretty dry and drinkable overall, but with some caramel sweetness up front. Toasty grain and chocolate malt flavors with a light background roast. Hops are mild but provide a good, clean balancing bitterness. Clean fermentation character. Medium-light body but with a rich, smooth mouthfeel. Clean and well balanced overall, and showing a pretty German sense of restraint compared to other local black lagers that end up more like bottom-fermented stouts.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Gordons in Columbus. The body is a little wattery. The taste is roasty, coffee, with a hint of smoke and a light bitter aftertaste. The taste is a little heavy for a schwarzbier (not much of a session beer) maybe a little closer to a porter.
