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?

Had on tap at the New Orleans location. Like its name states in German, it is a black beer. Pours dark with a nice head. My favorite of the beers at this brewpub.

Tap in DC. Black pour with white head. Almost no aroma. A very watery taste complemented by a clean coffee finish

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.

True to its name, black fading to brown near the surface. Dark and smooth, but a tad watery. Aroma nearly absent, just a hint of sweet maltiness. Smoky notes cut through the mild hop bitterness; the brew was otherwise quite dry. Enjoyable with food, though I donít think it could have held up so well on its own.

Good deel black to brown color contrasted well by a white fairly foamy head that then disapates. A little chocolate roasted coffe malt on the nose, a bit thin mouthfeel, satifying taste that does finish somewhat dry and crisp. Pretty good selection. Great building in DC.

Nice dark black foams up a nice head from the tap. Aroma of roasted coffee, caramel, and a touch of chocolate. A very smooth, light bodied beer that goes down very well, a bit to well for my taste. My only complaint is that the palate is a bit too light.

On tap at the Annapolis restaurant. Transparent dark pour with moderate head. Sweet roasted malt flavor, but very mild. Goes down very easily for a darker beer. Nice session beer.

A decent schwarzbier. It has a very roasted nose and a very light body for a beer this dark. Other than that itís pretty malty, with a slight coffeeish aroma and flavor. Worth trying if youíre at a Gordon Biersch but not worth seeking out.
