On tap. Aroma is of a light beer. The appearance is dark with a tan head. The taste is of dry, dark malt. Dry through out. This beer is light on the palate, but leaves a lasting taste that is of cheap light beer. Overall, a decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My first time with the style and I liked this one. Kind of a light porter with roasty chocolate smell and taste. Finishes well. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice cola black pour leads to a slightly sour roasted malt flavor. The aroma is hard to describe but it kind of smells like garbage?

Originally reviewed: 3/12/12. On-tap at the Burbank, CA location. Came out a deep unassuming black. A small beige sheet of head capped it off. The nose carried notes of coffee, mild cocoa powder and faint aromas of leafy veggies. Moderate carbonation here. Decent feel. Good roasted flavors noted, as well as a bit of a hop smack on the finish. Semi-sweet dark chocolate, mild graininess. This was a good beer, and really hit the spot on this mid-afternoon stop. I’d like to see this one in bottle form.

Draft, cola colored pour. Decent roasty flavor, lightered bodied, decent schwarzbier

phaleslu (9310) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Draft at Gordon Biersch-Columbus. Pours a dark brown-amber, clear, with big carbonation bubbles and a beige head. Aroma of toasted brown sugar, chocolate and roasted malts, and earth. Flavor of toasted and caramel malts, darker chocolate than in the nose, earth, and pumpernickel. Light-medium bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Not a bad schwarzbier.
