Draft to taster at the Atlanta brewpub. Looks solid; a transparent brown with foamy off-white head. Smells malty with notes of dough and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Sampled on draft at the Virginia Beach brewpub this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a small tan head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was faint but dryish with a hint of roasty malts. The flavor was dry, malty, roasty and woody. Medium length dry, roasty and woody finish. Medium body. Meh.

BeerViking (2292) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
Tap at GB in Broomfield, a pretty average Schwartz, dark brown with a fine head, touches of coffee on the nose, a little more coffee plus red fruit on the palate, and maybe just a touch of liquorice.

snoworsummer (1858) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Draft. Pours clear dark ruby brown with a thin white head and decent lacing. Tastes like watery coffee with light bitterness. Light body and medium carbonation. Not much aroma- faint and bitter coffee, possibly chocolate.

toml219 (203) - California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Serving type: on-tap Appearance- Dark Brown with a nice tan head Aroma- Malt, Chocolate and Coffee T/P - – Very strong coffee flavor almost like drinking an iced cappuccino. Very nice mouths feel no strong after taste. Overall- Very drinkable, not the best dark beer they have, that would have to go to the winter bock, but defiantly worth a try and would not pass one up if it was offered to me. It is one of the better beers that the brew, just not the best one

Rocketman2013 (108) - Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2013
No aroma. Dark brown with a thin tan head, no lacing. Tasted stale and metallic. Body is thin and watery. This was a poor sample, barely drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
