dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Sample from beer fest. Going off notes. Poured a deep dark brown color with a tannish head. Aroma was nuts, caramel and roasted flavors. Flavor was earthy, toast, nuts and caramel. Medium body. Kind of weaker. Not a whole lot there. Still better than some.

futre7 (158) - Taipei, TAIWAN - SEP 15, 2011
Some black beers are too strong. This one is a solid effort. Malt , coffee , burnt hops and perhaps a touch of toffee. It’s a quaffable lager and if your in GB and just drinking then it’s a superb choice. It’s not too strong and doesnt get sickly like some black beers can.

onceblind (5175) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2011
On tap at 2011 Denver Brew at the Zoo. Very dark clear ruby brown with a light khaki head. Very faint aroma overall, but theres some black malt, with some light coffee and toffee in there. Body proves to be just too light. Light dark malt tones, light coffee, light toastiness. Good, just light and unexciting.

Block (1649) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Not to bad. Black pour with a light and slightly roasted aroma. Flavor is smooth. Would go good with a pizza.

BiddleBrau (1001) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2011
At Atlanta - Dark mohogany, no head. Roasted malt nose. Roasted malt bitterness. Thin palate. Good flavor not overly done.

TBone (13637) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2011
Draught@Gordon Biersch, Downtown Seattle (ABV 4.3%/21 IBU)
Dark nut brown color, small beige head. Caramel, some coffee and chocolate in the nose. Light-bodied. Active carbonation. Sweetish with toasty maltyness and some coffee. Stylish although unexciting Schwarzbier.

Tap (Honolulu), Pour is clear brown. Palate is light but nice roastiness on the flavor. Great if wanting fuller flavor without much weight in the body.
